    problem uninstalling google chrome

    Hi,

    Since you already uninstalled Google Chrome using the Programs and Features, Google notifications may still be running in the background processes. We suggest that you follow these steps on how to end the Google Chrome process:

    • On your keyboard, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete.
    • Select Task Manager.
    • Under Processes, locate Google Notifications or Google Chrome.
    • Right click on them and select End Task.
    • Double check under Programs and Features if Google Chrome is completely gone.

    Let us know if these steps worked.

    Google Chrome crashes

    Hi,

    As per the description, I understand that the Chrome browser crashes. We will assist you to resolve the issue.

    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to check whether you are able to repair Google Chrome and check if that helps.

    In Search, enter Control Panel and select Control Panel.

    • Select Programs > Programs and
      Features
      , and then select the program.
    • Select Uninstall to remove the program.
    • To fix the program, select Repair or, if that’s not available, Change.
    • Follow the directions on the screen
    If the repair option is not present, you may uninstall and reinstall the application and check if that helps.

    If the issue still persists, it would be better if you contact the Google Chrome support for further assistance.
