    I keep getting "ask.com" website popping up...

    when I go to a Gannett website for news. I have had this problem with certain other websites too. Infuriating, but I have no idea what to do about it.
    Any help from my fellow alums from the birthplace of the digital computer?

    Did you install that program for the KU stream? I've had it happen occasionally since then. I don't think it's a coincidence.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I had to un-install it right after downloading the sopcast player for the KU stream, don't remember what I had to do since it's been a while, but have had no issues with it.

    Damn, I just fixxed it. I just uninstalled the Ask.com toolbar....you guys gave me the idea to check "remove programs" from the control panel.
    I am tech challenged. Thanks for help.
    Ask.com sucks.
