Search.Tb.Ask.com is a search engine by Ask.com, and even though it is legitimate, the search and the Ask Toolbar it usually comes along with can be classified as a potentially unwanted application. If we were to judge the book by its cover, this engine would be considered one of the best you can get: the interface is clean, professional and adorned with a right amount of quick links and features.
If this engine is set as your default search and home page, you probably have Ask Toolbar in your computer, too. That is because the toolbar is often a drive-by download, which means that you left some unnecessary boxes checked during the installation of another program. It is not an unsolvable problem though, and you will find the instructions below the article that will help you deal with it.

As it has been said in the paragraphs above, it should be relatively easy to remove Search.Tb.Ask.com. It is not a malicious application and comes from legitimate sources; however, it is advisable to still scan your system with SpyHunter after you delete it, because risks should not be taking whilst dealing with your system’s security.
