AdwCleaner should be used by those who knows about "Browser Helper Objects" (BHO). For getting rid of ask toolbar you can use tools like "Avast browser cleanup". It is safe to use . Disable your antivirus before running the tool.

Hi -
As Anshad Edavana has stated, I usually add to "Disable your Antivirus" with this program.
You will find the same posting is usually listed with Junlware Rwmoval Tool, that is similar -


Please download Junkware Removal Tool by thisisu to your desktop
Shut down your protection software (antivirus) now to avoid potential conflicts.
Run the tool by double-clicking it.
If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
The tool will open and start scanning your system.
Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.


Thank You -
