From time to time you will add a program to your computer (i.e., Java updates, CutePDF) that will bring with them other programs that you don’t really want.  Look for the questions as you install items on your computer that are asking if you want to ‘try this or that’ or if you see items that have a checkbox.  CutePDF, as of this writing, brings with it the Ask.com search tool.

If you accidentally have a program install that you don’t want, remove the program from your computer.  This method works if the program installed on the computer in a ‘normal’ way by adding it to the list of programs that Windows maintains.
