This is really, really annoying. Everytime Java prompts to update, it also very kindly gives you the option to not install the ASK toolbar. This is because it very kindly selects the install ASK toolbar automatically and you have to opt-out.
If you don’t pay attention (looking at you Dave), or it’s a family/friend who doesn’t notice these things, then the ASK toolbar takes over your browsers search settings and steals screen real-estate by appearing at the top of your browser.

Luckily it turns out there is an easy way to stop it asking for future updates.
