Can't get rid (uninstall) Chrome

I definitely did not install Google Chrome! Now, it won't let me uninstall it. "Close all Chrome windows....." message every time, even though everything is closed. Google is rapidly becoming a desease!

Pal, I`ve got the same problem. If I ever can get rid of it, I`ll never have it again, I hope , because like you, I never installed it in the first place. I`m going to try to Manually un-install it. If it works, I`ll be back to let you know. It might take a day or two before I can do it.Hang in there.

Hmm, wonder why isn't that working normally. Could you try the following:

Right click the Taskbar and select Task Manager. Go to the Processes tab and end any processes related to Chrome (e.g. all chrome.exe processes). Let me know if that doesn't work.

Thanks!

Don, thanks for your message. JandsomeOrlando, there's no Task Manager in right-clicking the taskbar.

Hey flwolf!

What operating system are you using? If you are using a Linux distro, the processes manager should be in another location.

Thanks!

I`m using windows vista . This sounds like a problem for many. I`ll be trying your fix tomorrow and I`ll let you know if it works. Thanks for your response.
