How to remove Ask Toolbar

When I try to remove the Ask Toolbar it starts, then gives the error:

Error 1316 A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file C:\Windows\Installer\Ask Toolbar.msi.

I opened the program and asked for a repair thinking it could repair then I could remove but that wouldn't work either.

You have helped me before, I hope that you can again. Thanks for being here!!

Regards, Syl

I cannot find it under the programs. I have to find it under the add/remove in control panel. I tried to remove and that gets an error. I tried to modify and got "we've detected you already have a Toolbar provided by Ask.com". I tried a repair and got the same line.

Thank you for your attention. Syl

That was quite a while ago but I did remove it. I found this site that sounds like it may work.. Good luck.

The program that they say to use in that blog shows up as a trojan 4/44 when you upload it to virus total.

I downloaded it and used it and it didn't work for me at all.

I am able to uninstall ask toolbar but it won't leave my add/remove programs list.
