I am using a Dell inspiron 2.5 lap top computer. Somehow I have gotten the Ask.com search bar and so I googled how to remove this search bar. I came across a Spy Hunter Malware Tool that claims to not only remove this tool bar but also get rid of all forms of malware. I don't know how much this is going to cost me (if something claims to be free it usually isn't) or what exactly is involved in using this product. I was wondering if there is someone who can enlighten me about Spy Hunter and/or suggest an alternate solution to solving this problem. I am somewhat computer illiterate but do have some of the basic skills that are needed to navigate without too much trouble. Help please!
Thank you, Lisa
