  1. Google Chrome installed itself; anything I should worry about?


    Hello everyone,

    Looks like Google Chrome installed itself on my Win10 laptop on 4/8 at 4:30 pm.

    I didn't find out until today when a shortcut appeared on my desktop.

    Not only is the stealth installation strange, but the week and a half delay for the shortcut to appear.

    Anything beyond the outright unwantedness of this I should be concerned about? I definitely did not download Chrome that afternoon.

    Thanks!

    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.
