Windows 7: Search engine automatically sets to Ask.com

Search engine automatically sets to Ask.com

Hi,

My browser (Chrome) now automatically switches default search engine to Ask.com

I go Settings > Search > manage search engines and set back to Google.com, but it ALWAYS goes back to Ask.com!

I may have downloaded some software that somehow overrides Chrome's settings and reverts to Ask.com on its own. How do I get rid of it?

Thank you!
