Many computer users are confused about the search tools associated with DailyLocalGuide Toolbar. When installing the program, you will be offered to replace your home page and default search engine to Ask.com. However, when the changes are made, the home page is changed to home.tb.ask.com, and the default search provider is changed to Ask Search. This is not a scam, and the search results presented via these search tools are identical to those that you would find via Ask.com. Nonetheless, there are a few reasons why you might want to remove DailyLocalGuide Toolbar-related search tools. Ask Search uses tracking cookies to provide ads that you are more likely to click on; however, it is impossible to know if these ads are trustworthy.
