I joined because my laptop had become 'infected' by the ask.com toolbar. I'd had this little sod crop up occasionally, but it was tolerable.

However, this morning, no matter which icon I clicked (BBC, Google, Hotmail) I got the ask.com toolbar. It was distributed by 'Koyote-Lab.Inc' obviously on the back of some long-ago installed software.


Searching for it proved illusive, and although Internet Options showed ask as the 'Home Page', and despite deleting it, there it was again.

Eventually, I found a piece of movie software from Koyote which I uninstalled. This then announced it was also deleting ask.com.

Seems it's gone at last.
