Ask.com is sneaking around to install its main page to chrome browser so that it can be the default new tab page or default search engine. This video wil show you how to remove it.
Many people start with Google search page of chrome from in many different places such as desktop system,
android smart phone, tablet, and so on. What I meant is you are expected to see the google search page based on opening new tab or chrome browser.
- ask.com search new tab
ask.com search new tab
However, it might be a virus or something you have committed to install ask.com as a default page while you are installing a software to your device.
In order to remove it, you have to uninstall it from the control panel.
1. start menu -> control panel -> Programs ( uninstall) : You will see the ask.com from the installed programs and select it and click the uninstall.
2. it might not uninstall it easily, since the Chrome processes are running in the background. In this case, you have to go task manager and find all chrome names and stop the processes.
3. then go to the tools from the Chrome browse and open the extensions. If there is any ask.com existed, then remove it too.
4. the last step is go to settings of Chrome browser and check whether the default search engine is google or not. If it is the ask.com, it has to be removed too and set google.com as the default.
