Same question here. I delete it from the control panel yet it is there. I am now trying to use Software Informer to remove it, and it gives me the same error - it tells me to close all Internet Explorer applications, and the click "OK" when ready - but I don't use IE! I use Firefox. I keep clicking ok but it keeps popping up. I hate this nuisance program and would love to go in deep and rid of it.
Thank you for your assistance.

Well, it should be included in the list of programs in 'Add or Remove Programs'.
Go to 'Start' > 'Control Panel' > 'Add or Remove Programs', find 'Ask Toolbar for Internet Explorer' and choose to remove it.

If you can't uninstall it using the classic method (Control Panel > Uninstall a program), try following the steps below:

Google Chrome and other Chromium-based browsers: type chrome://extensions in the address bar. Press the thrash can icon next to the Ask Toolbar.

Firefox: press Shift+Ctrl+A (or open Tools → Add-ons). Press Disable next to the Ask Toolbar. If you can't find the toolbar in the Extensions tab, switch to the Plugins tab and look there.

Opera 12.x and older: press Ctrl+Shift+E (or press the Opera button → Extensions → Manage extensions) to open the Extensions menu. Press Uninstall next to the Ask Toolbar.

Internet Explorer: open Tools → Manage Add-ons. Select the Ask Toolbar and press Disable.

After that, run CCleaner to make sure that there are no leftover rogue registry keys in your system and reboot the computer.
