These things can be very difficult to find. If you download the free trial of bull guard antivirus it will remove spyware like this.

You may be able to remove it is using manage programs under the control panel. Even if you find it in the program files you may not be able to remove it.

Shit answer mate
go to the bottom of Ask page and click on HELP. It will show you how to remove it.
I tried that several times and after the first unsuccessful try the program was removed from my list of default programs but the damn ASK search engine is still on my computer and overrides any other one I try to download.  I am pissed off.
How do I delete Ask Search Engine?
How do I remove the YAHOO search engine ?
