Windows 7: How to uninstall Google's Chrome and every last trace of it.

How to uninstall Google's Chrome and every last trace of it.

It pokes its nose in everywhere. The latest annoyance is that it's saying "Gmail requires your authorization to add your email account ..... to Mailwasher "

Why, for God's sake? I have already added my GMail account to Mailwasher.

I need to clear out anything and everything associated with Google and Chrome and start afresh.

There are many items on the internet which purport to do this. Many are old, many are inarticulate. None of them inspire confidence.

Suggestions please?

I once tried Google Chrome on a Win 7 system. A big mistake. Beside Chrome, it installed a Google "Updater" program. The Updater program caused interruptions (dropouts) in my recording studio software, even when not on line (NIC disabled).

I uninstalled Chrome and the updater but the updater still remained. I tried uninstalling it with Revo Uninstaller which has an option to search the registry for leftover items. There were still Google parts there - "it wouldn't die". I finally got rid of it by manually editing the Registry and deleting every Google entry I could find (nearly 100). If I had it to do over again I think the best way is to just do a "clean" reinstall of Windows (reformat the hard drive as part of the clean install).

Oh, as bad as that is it ...

I had already reinstalled Windows 7, a week or so ago. and I hardly have the patience left to go through the palaver again.

I have seen this moment coming for a long time. I'll make sure that my Windows !0 machine is in good health and then disable this one before ditching it.

There are two ways to totally delete Google CHrome.So first way and my recommendet one is to go to your local drive then to Program Files then find google chrome and delete it's files or even all folder and then emty recycle bin if chrome is there.And the second way is by deleting google chrome registry keys that is the most efficient one.So go to run and write "regedit" and tap run and then tap yes on the new windows displayed.Then expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and then expand SOFTWARE and then click this folder RegisteredApplications.So this is full registry path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\RegisteredApplications and then right click to google chrome and tap delete.If this helps u let me know down below.

Thank you General Erton. I will make a note of that.

I have already uninstalled Windows 7 and will be reinstalling it soon - I'm rather busy just now.
