  1. Problem with downloads in Chrome


    Hello! As of March 8th, 2019 I can't download anything. Whenever I try, I get a message that says 'virus scan failed' accompanied by the failed download. Looking back at my download history, I was able to download things on March 6th, but was not able to on March 8th (I didn't try to download anything on March 17th). Since I mostly download images for drawing references, I figured this wouldn't be a problem, and have been screenshotting the images I used for drawing.

    However, I attended a Set It Off concert last night and bought a vinyl record of their newest album that is accompanied with a download for MP3's. I tried to download them with no success. I am worried as I only have two more tries to access the page that I can download them from. Thank you in advance, and I hope this was enough info! I can provide more if needed. Thank you!

    :)

    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.
