First, I bought a new HP computer with Windows 7 .... I really really dislike Windows 7 - there are so many features I liked in XP that are not available in 7 or too many steps to get there! But my major problem right now is how to get rid of ask.com. I have Century Link as my provider, way too many ads but ask.com is the worst. I've noticed on this forum there are directions on how to uninstall ask.com. I'm afraid to try any one of them because when I've tried to download some programs onto my computer I get that babylon- automatically takes over my homepage and it's taken me hours to get rid of it!! Is the uninstall ask.com safe? I've just had so much trouble with some of these sites I'm a little leary.
