Has ayone having a disagreement with ASK insisting it be "my home page" when I type in and click "save" for another site-I guarantee Ask will be back next time I boot up---I, at the time use FireFox- as default--- with my chosen home page,and it stays that way----not so, using Internet Explorer 9--etc, which though not my default is in use all day, listening to music.

I use Windows 7 pro,

I suspect it has come in piggyback on another program ie Adobe or such-I use Google when I do a search and do NOT want this intrusion.

I would want to permanently eliminate Ask---if I can, but it will not listen to me,nagging :groan:

Have you tried removing Ask from Programs and Features?

In Firefox...click on view tab...and then look over at toolbars...just uncheck the Ask toolbar....

Now you can delete the program....

Thank you all
I thought I had done that- but perhaps my senile brain is telling fibs--but I don't have trouble with FF - only I/E-wish me luck --I will work on the same advisement
