    I am running Windows 7 on an emachines E640 laptop.

    On start up I get the ask.com page and would like information/data/program to be able to remove it once and for all!

    Please download AdwCleaner.

    • Double-click the adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
    • Click Delete.
    • When the scan is finished, a Notepad window will be opened.
    • Please post the contents in your next reply.
    • The logfile will also be saved in C:\AdwCleaner[R1].txt.

    I would like to pass my thanks to Phantom010 for giving me the neccesary data/program to be able to remove the damaging opening page of Ask.com. It has worked totally. I have learnt the lesson of being more careful in looking at each page when down loading replacement or new software.

    Thank you for your help. I shall return if the need arises!

    Best regards,

    Wallit123 (aka Simon).:)
