Sorry, what is CCleaner? As far as startup to disable or delete toolbars and etc...why those? Anyway, its like I said, apparently I do not have it anymore unless its lurking somewhere, behind the scenes.
Sometimes toolbars can add entries in your Startup. One thing you can do is check Program Files or Program Files (x86) and ensure no folders remain.

Go to Start and type regedit into the search bar and press enter

In regedit, press F3 > type *ask* and then when that finishes type *toolbar* Do not do anything, if you get results, post them here in a screen shot

Now download autoruns from here: Autoruns for Windows

Once you download it, unzip the folder and extract autoruns.exe to your desktop. Right-click autoruns.exe and click Run as Administrator

After autoruns finishes populating, right-click and delete all yellow entries.

Now for full disclosure, is this excessive for Ask toolbar? Sure, but if you check the places I mention above and you don't find anything, then the toolbar is most likely completely gone.
