When attempting to uninstall the Ask Toolbar on a laptop earlier I ran into numerous issues including receiving an error 1730. The error 1730 displayed even though I was logged into the Windows Vista laptop as an administrator and following the proper directions for uninstallation. Below I describe numerous steps to take that will guarantee that the Ask Toolbar application is uninstalled including removing any leftover Ask Toolbar files.
A friend of mine has a computer shop and earlier today I was looking at a laptop with him that had a bunch of issues including three different toolbars being installed in Internet Explorer. Having this many toolbars installed will only slow things down. I recommend having one toolbar at most installed and personally I prefer the Google Toolbar because I use so many different Google applications and Google won’t attempt to display a bunch of unwanted data in the top of your Internet Explorer browser window.
