You don't have Chrome installed. CCleaner just thinks you do. Not to be a wise guy, but just ignor it. CCleaner shows Adobe reader for me, and I don't have it installed. A Guy

It appears to me that you don't have Google Chrome on your computer (perhaps you did at one time) and the user data was left behind after Chrome was uninstalled and that is what CCleaner is seeing. If you get those files in your application data folder it won't show up in CCleaner anymore.
Yeah, what is preventing me from accessing "application data" ?
" DOH " Stupid computers!

I can (almost ) rest now.

Thank you for your input.

I have been searching for a solution via this thread, and have ,through the assistance of you guys, found answer enough to satiate me.

And I thank you all.

As luck would have it, a new question has developed ( through this process)

I cannot access C:/documents and settings/username/local settings/application data/

The closest I can get, is C:/users/username/ (then just the normal stuff)
But, it appears to me that I don't have access to all these other files.
Now, I want access to them...I want to view them, I want to change them if I so choose.

If this constitutes a new thread, then so be it.

C:/documents and settings/username/local settings/application data/ is just a junction point pointing to other directories you can access.

Folder Access Denied for Windows 7 Administrator - Microsoft Answers

C:/documents and settings/ is a protected operating system file. To even view it you must uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) .

You have access to everything through other directories I believe. A Guy
