I guess you still don't get the point.
ASK toolbar or online search is NOT desirable.
Use Bing or Chrome or Yahoo. Stay away from ASK

I get the point.  How can I get this Bing search bar?  If by saying use Chrome do you mean the browser?  If that's the case I've had the browser before but didn't like it so uninstalled it.

The 11 most annoying web apps
http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/news/software/3238543/the-11-most-annoying-web-apps/

you can read about ask on page 4


read chapter #6  Criticism   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ask.com
I read the whole thing and I'm amazed! Some of the stuff I had installed before, but got rid of for exactly the precise reasons the article stated.

I don't have the toolbar.   I just ask a question on the aj page.  My Firefox homepage has never been changed.  I don't know what Nero is but it was already on my newest computer when I bought it back in June of this year.  It doesn't show up on my installed program's.  Every once in a while I'll see it flash across my computer screen, then after a few seconds it's gone.

The Ask toolbar is evil, but apparently perfectly legal.

You obviously didn't notice that Pondus mentioned not trusting chinese software, not hardware ;)
