Chrome to warn of possible settings hijack
According to Google, the number one user complaint they get for the Chrome browser is when software hijacks the Chrome settings. This is in spite of measures they've taken to combat the problem, such as adding a "reset browser settings" button to Chrome's settings page.
The next step in protecting Chrome users will be for it to detect when settings have changed in a suspicious manner. This will be a change only on Windows, presumably because that is where the problem is.
When Chrome has detected a settings change, it will raise this message:
"Chrome has detected that your browser settings may have changed without your knowledge. Would you like to reset them to their original defaults?" You can choose "Reset" or "No Thanks" and you can choose to report what happened to Google.

What is needed is settings for Chrome should only apply to Chrome not other browsers,
Chrome has always had a aggressive install,
The issue is Chrome does not revert changes when uninstalled leaving allot of holes for other browsers to straighten out/ via resetting them and even then it's not enough for Office.. users,
