I would like to help you, please let me know when you are ready
Hi, ready now, was running the virus scan again with no luck
hi, let's go step by step
is ask search in your internet explorer? (your browser)
can you click your start button. go to control panel
when you are in control panel, at top-right, you will see a small textbox (used for searching)
can you type "internet options" there
it will display the internet options icon
please open internet options
go to ADVANCED tab.
there, you will see a RESET button
this button will restore your ie to factory condition (default values)
any plugins or add ons (like ask) will be removed
after doing this please close ie. and open it again
is ask still there? or is it gone?
tried that no luck, I have lost my yahoo toolbar, but still have ask
is it a toolbar? (is it linked to your ie)
or, is it only visible when you visit websites?
no when I used to start my computer, I clicked on ie, my yahoo home page came up with toolbar, since trying
that the last thing my yahoo home page is missing the toolbar and the ask search still comes up first
were you able to press the "reset" button? (was it successful, or did it give error?)
yes I was able to press the reset button but when I went back to ie ask search page was still there
ask comes automatically whenever you open your internet explorer?
(is it coming instantly?)
yesm if you can do remote assistance that will be better I am hopeless
