"Ask" is not a browser, it's merely a browser toolbar which has been added to your Chrome web browser (probably when you installed something & you didn't notice that Ask is included).

See this page for help in removing it: http://help.ask.com/link/portal/300...

Also run these two free programs:

AdwCleaner:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Cleaning" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

Please copy / paste both logs on here so that we can get an idea what else might be around.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
