Hi.

 

Shortly after updating to windows 10 Malwarebytes found ask/searchscopes entries, I was wondering if ask might come preinstalled with win 10.

Hi Zone out :)

Windows 10 doesn't come with Ask, no. Microsoft even considers Ask as a PUP and added detections for it in Windows Defender, so these entries are coming from elsewhere.
