Microsoft deletes older Ask.com browser toolbars, but ignores Oracle's new crapware

Gregg Keizer | June 16, 2015
Microsoft took what appeared to be a shot at Oracle's wallet this month when it switched on search-and-destroy in its security software for older versions of the Ask browser toolbar, which has long been bundled with Java even in the face of users' complaints.

Windows users who do not run Microsoft-branded security software can uninstall the Ask toolbar manuallyby following the instructions on Ask.com's website.

Yahoo's toolbar can also be manually eradicated by following steps listed on Yahoo's site.

Oracle did not reply to questions about its bundling of browser-change tools with Java.
