    In browser, I get install these freaking adware/ask.com & other.
    Even I remove them completely from browser or any other they keep on showing again.
    How to remove them permanently.

    Google it, there is some good advice out there and next time you install something read very carefully what is on the installation dialogs, uncheck the options for anything except the thing you intend to install.

    add/remove programs - ask.com will be there if its installed.

    IE aslo has a feature of totally resetting the browser to default (original) settings.

    Also, if you download something, check very carefully where its coming from. For example: if you want flash player, the URL should have "adobe.com" right at the start.

    Use Malwarebytes to remove adware otherwise its just going to come back.

    I'm sorry to tell you that Malwarebytes may not remove Ask successfully.

    Successful removal depends upon the depth of infection.
    It may simply be that you have not changed your homepage away from Ask (MB does not do this) and the browser goes there and reinfects as soon as you open it.
    Change this offline before using the browser online.
    Sometimes Ask is protected by another program. 'SearchProtect' is one such. Some are hidden.

    I recommend the Revo Uninstaller. I kept getting a 1316 Error because it could not locate the original uninstaller in C:\Windows\Installer\...
