How do i uninstall a program that will not uninstall using programs and features

Hi Kathy, Google Chrome will absolutely definitely not itself put unwanted programs and malware on your PC. Chrome is one of the top 3 internet browsers used in the world and will never ever behave like this.

However, malicious websites you have visited, USING Chrome to browse to them, WILL do that, most especially if your PC has no anti-malware program installed and running. This is what I feel has happened to you. A great deal of freeware programs people download nowadays come with such unwanted 'payloads'.

What I advise is this (I have absolutely no connection with these people and no reward except beneficial experiences) is to visit

Hitman is a sweeper/cleaner based in the Cloud. It will descend, find all your nasties in the PC, and list them for deletion. It then departs, leaving no installation.

Then install a good anti-virus program like Malwarebytes, Kaspersky or AVG. Once installed have it do another sweep and clean.

The 2 main commercial antivirus market leaders, N****n and M****e, are large and powerful, but very dominating, but go that way if you wish, I would not.

Then make sure you have a good firewall running. Windows' own internal firewall is good enough. If unsure, post again saying what version of Windows you have (sorry, I don't know Apple OS).

If all that is overwhelming, your local computer shop will do the whole thing for you, but you do not have to buy any expensive software at all.

Have installed chrome but when I click on icon you see it downloading then after awhile message comes on this page is un responsive do you want to kill or wait this driving me nuts I had chrome before and...

Try it in safe mode with network support. You may have a program preventing the install. Also you can try a automatic installer like NINITE.COM.

Just go to:
Ninite Install or Update Multiple Apps at Once
and choose
then scroll down and click on Get Installer
Once downloaded just install it and then your back in business.

Google chrome will not load

A BEX error is Something to do with a Script Bug or registry error
and Roughly translated Its a Buffer "Exception" Bug

So the only thing I can advise you do is Uninstall Chrome (save your Chrome favorites) Link is on the Start menu
Then run system cleaner Reginout
Reinstall Chrome from the Google address (Install your Favorites) and touch wood all will be good again?

NOTE: When I googled this I discovered the BEX error (code) also is used with other applications and browsers.

Google Chrome has been working on my computer and now all of a sudden I have the "Whoa!" error every time I try to start up Chrome. I have uninstalled and reinstalled. I have also tried to change...

Hi Enyonam Kuma,
(A) Perhaps it is the site you are visiting which is causing the error. it could be a harmful site which is full of worms and is attacking your Browser.

(B) Have you updated your windows XP to the latest updates?
if you haven't please do so. this may be important so that your computer can function properly without hesitation on installing any other softwares as well.

If you are always receiving the error then it might be due to an error caused by an unknown form of factor within your PC. this could be a virus or an incompatible software installed earlier.

i would recommend you to uninstall google chrome using this software :
1. download the revo uninstaller free. 2. install the software like you usually would with any other. 3. run the RevoUninstallFree. 4. search for google chrome in the list in view. 5. highlight google chrome and click uninstall. 6. an option will appear, click on advanced uninstall, and remove every registry root which pops up. 7. restart your pc and fully scan your pc with an anti virus which is fully updated.
( ) ( incase you dont have one refer to the site link i provided )
8. If there are no viruses download google chrome again and reinstall it.
9. if there is a virus remove it.
Google Chrome : ( )
if you have fully scanned your PC with an antivirus without any infection and your still getting an error with your chrome i would suggest you to reopen RevoUninstallFree, to remove any unnecessary programs you have installed earlier which might prevent google chrome to work properly.
(C) If all else fails, i recommend to resort on downloading other browsers.

1. Opera Browser :
2. Internet Explorer 9 : 3. Firefox :
4. Safari Browser :
i hope this helps, Good luck !!

Chrome is not shiney and won't uninstall or install

You can remove Google Chrome like any other Windows program. Follow these steps: Click the Start menu on your computer taskbar. 
Select All Programs. 
Select Google Chrome. 
Select Uninstall Google Chrome.
Click the Yes button in the confirmation dialog box.

The uninstall process will begin and all your Google Chrome browser and application shortcuts will also be removed. 
Alternatively, you can double-click Add or Remove programs in Window XP's Control Panel or Programs and Features in Windows Vista, select Google Chrome in the list, and click the Remove button.

Google Chrome leaves behind your profile information in case you wish to reinstall in the future. To delete this information, go to \Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome in Windows XP or \Documents and Settings\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome in Windows Vista.
