this morning I downloaded weatherbug.com then when I do a search it would default to ask.com and not my normal bing.com. I went in and changed my internet options and deleted ask.com and now it only shows bing.com, however now when I type in a search in the task bar it changes over to ask.com but doesn't do the search. How can I fix this?

Was there a spot on the weatherbug install about including ask.com as your home page. Uninstall weatherbug and reinstall and watch the screens. there should be a box to check so it doesn't add anything else. Hope this helps.

Are you talking about the mini search bar at the top of the browser window?

What browser are you using?

You may need to go into your toll bar settings and delete ask.com.
