BAD BAD BAD - Ask took over my browser. I am sure it was my fault. Perhaps I was too quick to click OK when I was downloading something else. But it was like a virus took over. Not only was it now my default search engine, but I was unable to choose any other search engines. All the choices went away, no other engines in the drop-down, restore button grayed out, add new search engine disabled, the works. Had to contact support to fix it. Now this is making me question my browser, how could it be that vulnerable? So often the internet makes me sad thinking of all the evil people out there trying to rip me off or just cause me headaches for fun.
Oh, also, WORST SEARCH ENGINE EVER! - The results were like the opposite of what I was actually looking for. And way too many of the sites listed were irrelevant and trying to sell something instead of give me the information I needed. It's just the kind of stuff that make you fell icky and violated. Plus, the help link at the bottom of the page, not working. ASK SUCKS BIG TIME!

Stunningly unhelpful. Beyond annoying. Is there any way to make it stay away from my searches? That I might even pay for?

Rang to ask for advice on getting a certain computer charger. Was redirected to a lawyer site, which did not repond. I paid my $34 fee, And got no response from Andy. I connected again and was going to be charged another $34 fee and get to speak to the deaf Andy again. Still unsure Andy is the lawyer or the computer technician. I am going to attempt to get my money back. Perhaps I could connect with a lawyer through ask .com.

So as I was going through many well wishing emails and text messages from friends Christmas Eve evening, a message pops up at about 6PM, you have a "credit change"; i go into my credit watching account, with no claims, never having one and always excellent credit; they show up as being the ones evil and nasty enough, thinking I would ruin perfect credit, no requests from them or their incompetent clients, a "medical clinic" "agent care clinic" called ME MedExpress Urgent Care VA on 21054A Timberlake Road in Lynchburg, Virginia, who I would never go to again, many forms which apparently the "doctors" do not read before prescribing prednizone for a rash, which did nothing but create a problem with my other meds listed on their forms, so after getting worse and other problems, my cancer drs told me it was not to be taken with my other meds and would not fix the problem anyway, my time with the "dr" was about 5-7 minutes and the fee was US$275.00 twice the price of seeing my primary care dr...who knows my needs, but they claimed to be the convenient, quick, affordable solution, I can not afford medical incompetence, pice gauging, and the not hearing from them either, assuming my costly insurance covered it, getting a Christmas Eve gift from these unethical, incompetents. They never sent a statement requesting payment, but slam you on the most sacred of times, mudding a perfect credit record, after dealing with drs regularly since my cancers some 25 years now with its concomitant problems, and NEVER being treated like this nor "enjoying" a ding on my credit. Both this credit agency and their client ME should be shut down, certainly avoided, be sure to complain to the BBB, Yelp, and the state Insurance Commission and your State Attorney General.

Unfortunately experienced this thing only as an extension and start page on my browser and had to devote some time to cleaning this out. This may be a good resource but spoiled everything by that unwanted install...

It's a good site. You obviously have to take the answer with a grain of salt b/c not everyone knows what they're talking about, but they do a pretty impressive job for what it is overall.
Review by Harkesh Zetterberg3 years ago
This site has interesting idea behind it: you may ask a person on another side of the world about anything. I truly enjoy this site. Sometimes, answers are quite witty.
Review by Ewan Tangee3 years ago
Whatever question you have, ask.com will help you find the answer. I love and recommend this website.

I used ASK for a long time not too many spammy ads.
Review by JosephPallotti3 years ago
Offers search for web sites, images, news, blogs, video, maps and directions, local search and shopping.
Review by Malin3 years ago
This is (or atleast was) filthy website full of ads generator masked as useless search engine.
Its ad toolbar trojan is notorious to hijack your pc
stealthly tracking and collecting your info,
perhaps stealing password and account number
(why wouldn't they, those are most precious info available for free when you are inside).
I always blocked ask.com on all routers/servers under my control.
Theye are definitely untrostworthy internet parasite.
Review by Acyclist3 years ago
this is a good site but it lacks in functionality
Review by Freix Sody4 years ago
Folks, ask.com is nothing more than an ad generator, NOT a search engine. Any software that has to be installed solely by bundling with other software is suspicious. I have had enough of removing it from customer machines.
Review by Pappalardo Karaman4 years ago
I've only used this site once so far. But I will most likely use it again at some time in the future. What I liked about it was that I've been looking for information on a particular issue and hadn't found any answers, at least not ones I could understand. Ask.com gave an answer that was clear and easy to understand without over-simplifying it.

Very nice search engine! Sometimes better than Google
Review by Amalitsa4 years ago
Very good website with great design, photos and nice representation. Whether you are simply bored at home with nothing to watch or do or whether you are really looking for some answers, ask.com is an excellent place for time spending and education. This website always come up with the answer.
Well done and keep up adding more and interesting material.

Tolle Suchmaschine wenngleich sie es nicht wirklich mit Google aufnehmen kann. Allerdings fühle ich mich persönlich bei der Benutzung von ASK nicht so überwacht wie bei Google.
