Most times when I click on IE I get a screen with Ask on. I don't recall ever asking for ask, how can I get rid of it please? Also comes up when I click on a shortcut icon.

Open Control panel

Click internet options

Click advanced

Click restore advanced settings

Click reset

Tick all the boxes

Click ok

 

This will restore IE to system defaults. Reset your homepage, disable toolbars etc

Tried that Kris, It didn't work, so tried different options (default to ms) and still no joy. Tried restarting and still no! it kept resetting itself to Ask.com

 

I then noticed a little message popped up down the bottom saying " movies toolbar has stopped an attempt to change your homepage", so I clicked on this box and was informed that Bandoo was responsible, (bandoo is Ask, and "movies toolbar" is part of it) and I managed to delete it

 

Thanks for your help

usually installing something and forgetting to tick "custom" and unticking the bozes beneath does it .

my neice keeps doing it and gets half a page of toolbars i have to remove now and again


Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

I noticed recently that even Sourceforge are in on this nonsense. Sad.
