When I right click over my Firefox browser there's a listing for various toolbars(Navigation,Google,Yahoo etc.)There is also a listing for Ask.It doesn't have the word Toolbar after it.When I click on it,a toolbar opens,with a horizontal scrollbar and some blank space above the scrollbar.There is also the top of an icon visible on the left side,in the space above the scrollbar.The "taskbar is not listed in the add-ons window in Tools.When I go to add/remove programs,Ask Toolbar is listed.When I click on remove,a RUNDLL window opens,with the following message(Error loadingC:\PROGRA~1\AskSBar\bar\1.bin\AskSBar.dll)The specified module could not be found.I can click on check/uncheck and the faux toolbar disappears,but I'd like to remove it completely,since it has no functionality and I'm worried that it might be some sort of spyware/virus crap.Thanks for any help on this issue. :thumbsup:

Scan with malwarebytes anti-malware. Also check add/remove programs.
