    Default Unable to uninstall google chrome?

    I went through and downloaded it, didn't like it, and tried to get rid of it. When I went to 'add or remove programs' and hit 'uninstall' a window popped up that says 'Please close all google chrome windows and try again' I didn't have any google chrome windows open.

    Also, when I run CCleaner, it tells me I must close the google chrome window for it to work. Again, I don't have one open that I know of.

    I tried shutting my computer off, and then back on, same message, and same problem.

    Ideas? Thanks for your time! EDIT!!!!!

    EDIT! Fixed! So sorry! I was able to open the task manager and end the hidden process that chrome was running, and successfully remove it. So sorry for taking up forum space!!!

    Hi Collegekid,

    Not a problem at all!

    Your solution may have helped many others with trying to uninstall Google Chrome. It is offered by many 3rd party programs and most people just click away when installing such programs without unchecking the prechecked options nor even reading the windows that are presented to them during the download and they inevitably end up with Google Chrome on their computer.

    Thanks for posting!
