Google Chrome and 'sweetim?' why has sweetim taken over google chrome on my computer1 Recommended Answer
Please describe your question/comment in detail (for example, steps to reproduce the problem): I have always used Google Chrome. Recently I had problems trying to go into Google Chrome, so I uninstalled and reinstalled. When I reinstalled and clicked on Google Chrome icon, I keep getting 'sweetim' coming up with a different logo. Is this part of Google Chrome. I have uninstalled and reinstalled again, but 'sweetim' still appears? How can I get rid of this and have my 'old' Google Chrome back?
- If unfamiliar pages are opening up each time you start up Chrome, check in Chrome Menu > Settings > On Startup > next to the radio button for Open a specific page or set of pages, click on Set pages > remove any unwanted URLs by hovering over the URL until you see an "X" appear to the right side of the URL.
- If all searches that you perform in the omnibox are returning with results from a different search engine instead of your preferred search engine, check in Chrome Menu > Settings > Search > Manage search engines > check the list of Default search engines, Other search engines, and Search engines added by extensions, and remove suspicious entries that you are not familiar with. Depending on your extensions, you may not see the last section for Search engines added by extensions.
- To remove an unfamiliar search engine, make sure you select your preferred search engine first, and then remove the unfamiliar option.
- If an unfamiliar page opens up when you click on the Home button, check in Chrome Menu > Settings > Appearance > select the Show Home button checkbox > check the URL below it.
- Also check that there are no extensions installed that may be causing these changes. Go to Chrome Menu > Settings > Extensions > if you see any unfamiliar extension that you do not remember installing, try disabling/removing the extension to see it was causing these changes. Some users have mentioned "New Tool for Chrome". To disable, uncheck the "Enabled" checkbox next to the extension. To remove, hover over the extension until you see a trash can icon appear, and click on the icon.
However, this does not show sweetim, so cannot remove it that way. I have now emailed sweetim.com support and awaiting their reply.
Who, what and where is "Wrench"? It sounds like a tool, and in my toolbox in the real world, in the actual garage, if I do not find the wrench I need, I go and buy a new one. On here I am left guessing as to what you might mean.
Would you care to enlighten us about "Wrench" ? What is the meaning of "wrench"? Were is "wrench"? What and where is a "radio button"?
That, in general, is what I hate about software people - always coming up with new secret code words for stuff that ought to be made crystal clear. You people are purposely unclear, unkind, unreasonable.
My guess is that in the year 2045 a herd of irate retired people will overrun the campuses of MS, Apple, Google, etc, etc, seeking revenge for that kind of behavior. It won't be pretty.
