Windows 7: Search Engines?

Is the only thing bothering you, that search engine?

Is everything else running well?

Is that search engine only on your PC?

If so, and you want to reinstall, just do it on the PC that is affected.

1. Every thing else is perfect.

2. This Search engine is on both desktop and laptop and wont get deleted like others.......both are affected and synced.

3. Should I uninstall Chrome on both and than reinstall?

Thanks.

If it were me, I would just leave it alone.

The expression - If it ain't broke, don't fix it, seems to apply.

Just for your peace of mind, uninstall Chrome and reinstall.

On Both the pcs unisntall and reinstall Chrome correct.......do realize I have 1 gmail that runs on both pcs and Andriod G Chrome?

Thanks again for your expert thoughts.

Reinstalling W7 updates and all apps on both pcs would be a waste of time and headaches.........

Thanks.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Good luck.

If you think you have resolved your question, please click "Solved".

BTW - make sure whenever you download a program, always check "custom" and decline all that other garbage. The program will still download.

I know and thanks for good luck it worked.

I wasn't confused just the thought of reinstall of W7 was killing me lol........

Simultaneously uninstalled Chrome on both, rebooted, and reinstalled and signed in with the same credentials.........this time I got the option to delete other Search Engine which I did on one and automatically got deleted on the other too, earlier it wasnt giving an option to delete........

I have a few queries since all 3 Chromes are synced.

1. In Settings > Advanced sync.......should I sync all OR choose what to sync on each machine?

2. Secondly I lost the multicolored Google app icon the top left of a Chrome window, which when clicked on shows Google app.......like Mail GPS, Maps, Youtube......any ways to bring it back?

3. Thirdly should in Settings > Advanced Google to be running in back ground be unchecked?

4. Lastly how does one edit Content settings?

Thanks again.
