How to remove ask jeeves

Updated January 19, 2017

Ask, formerly known as "Ask Jeeves," is a search engine that allows you to type in a search item, click "Search" and it automatically browses the Web to find matches for your search term. You can also install an "Ask" toolbar on your computer to make searching this search engine quicker because the search toolbar sits at the top of every Web page you visit. If you want to remove the Ask toolbar, you can remove it by deleting the program from your computer.

Close all programs, including websites, you have open on your computer.

Move your mouse to highlight the "Start" button on your computer screen. Right-click the mouse to select the "Start" button.

Select "Control Panel" from the open Start menu.

Click the "Add/Remove Programs" option.

Scroll down the list of programs until you see the "Ask" program. Click the "Uninstall" or "Remove" option next to the program. Click "Yes" to confirm you want to remove the program and the program components.

Turn the computer off to fully remove the "Ask" program by clicking the "Start" menu option again and selecting "Turn Computer Off."

Turn your computer back on by pressing the "Power" button on your computer tower.
