Windows 7: Google tricks

Google tricks

Recently reinstalled Avast anti virus.
They installed Google Chrome on my computer, even though I said no.

It appears (that), No doesn't always mean No.

Google Chrome isn't stored in the usual place, ie; Program files, but hidden away in some obtuse file, that even if found, is a file I cannot access to change nor uninstall.

Win 7 is a bit difficult to open/access certain files.

Bottom line is, how can I uninstall Google Chrome from my computer ?

REVO Uninstaller free should be able to track it down and destroy it. Run it at the Highest Level to ensure it removes the auto updater and all other components.

You can easily uninstall Google Chrome from the Programs Group (Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features) in the Control Panel.

Just installed it.
That is a really cool program.
It didn't show an entry of Google Chrome but.

Is it possible that Google Chrome is not actually installed on my computer?
Ccleaner indicates that it is.

What now Bro?

If you see that it is installed in the Programs Menu of CCcleaner, go ahead and uninstall it there.

In Ccleaner, under Tools/ uninstall...Google Chrome is not listed.
However, in Ccleaner/applications, there is the entry.

Patience man, stick with it...I got to know..

If I can't find Google Chrome, how then can I go to Google Chrome Help?

Excuse me for dumb, but I have to know how to fix this problem, so don't give up.
I am hoping (that) you may have the patience to help me solve this problem.

inouno, the link I provided, gives you exact instructions on how to manually remove Chrome.

Please post a Snip of your program menu where Google Chrome shows installed, another after right clicking on Chrome and selecting "open file location" with the resulting window. Also a snip from CCcleaner showing Chrome as installed also.
