@ICItT2LOL,

As far as the Registry keys mentioned, FRST scans them.

On ADWCleaner...
When finished using the program, use the Uninstall option.
Upon clicking, you are prompted with another window mentioning a Quarantine folder.
Inside this folder the files detected by AdwCleaner are contained.

When you use the Uninstall option, AdwCleaner removes the Quarantine folder, as well as itself!

If you wish to use ADWCleaner again at some other time, download a new version. Most programs change to accomodate new adware, etc., so a new version is best.

~~~~
Alternatively to the Uninstall option in ADWCleaner, there is the DELFIX tool ( also by Xplode (ADWcleaner)) to get rid of all the ADWCleaner logs and program files.
It also removes a comprehensive list of tools after their usage:

@weybrew,

Will get back with you this evening. Need to check those three pages that hang.
For now, use Chrome, and let us know if you are experiencing any problems.
Still would like to know the version of Chrome that is installed!

Ok cottonball got that and yes I always download each time I use the ADW from bleeping computer. But thanks for the heads up on the FRST It was just that I have often removed Norton and AVG found Symantec and AVG stuff still buried in there.

I was just referring to what I asked in post #40 re the HKEY's entries and the "brands" I mentioned are the ones I always seem to find still lurking after the removal tools for that particular software has "removed" the software.
The brands were really just a reference / example of stuff lurking and that the Google software that was being discussed may have left remnants behind much in the way that the brands I mentioned do. Perhaps I shouldn't have named brands and just hinted at Google remnants being left behind. My mistake

weybrew,

Please create a Restore Point before you proceed, since we are going to remove Chrome's Registry entries, folders and files.

Now, please download and install Revo Uninstaller 1.95:
Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems

Run the Revo Uninstaller and select: Google Chrome
Click the Uninstall icon to remove the selected program.
Select: Advanced
Click: Next, and follow the prompts.
Click: Select All and Delete to remove all Registry items, folders and files listed by Revo.
If asked to restart the computer, please do so.

Next, install the latest stable build of Google Chrome:
Chrome

Try the Chrome Browser, and let us know how it goes.

Sorry for the delay, cottonball, I didn't get email notification of a new post.

I ran a Revo uninstall as instructed. It found 6 leftover registry entries and 4100 leftover files after Chrome uninstall. I have installed Chrome v 43.0.2357.134 m and will try it out over the next couple of days. My initial start-up was not promising as it gave me a blank white screen...then another blank "unresponsive" white screen. After closing both, another start-up went OK. I noticed before, and now again, that some commands to open new tabs result in a blank tab and no response. Closing that tab and repeating the command goes fine (?). I'll continue to monitor things and report back.
