Specs: Windows 7

I had installed a toolbar and it was installed in Internet explorer.
Nothing happened on google chrome.
I shut down my laptop and turned it back on, and then I opened google chrome.
Now I have the Ask Toolbar and I can't uninstall it.
Any help?

Covers the usual routes...

I removed it via control panel add/remove programmes...

The toolbar is frequently offered as default install with quite a few utilities etc.; and one has to be alert to this and uncheck the box that allows it
in by default!
