Depending on where you get the installer, it will "offer" to add the Auslogics toolbar, and the ask.com toolbar. I believe duing installation, the installer does connect to see if you have chosen this option. You may also find an exe in the Auslogic folder with the ask icon similar to this:
And possibly, an apnstub.exe
Such as these from my Avira folder. The apnstub.exe
is what attempts to call out on an Avira install.
