    Wow, this post is of no use to Mac users. This is just the default way to uninstall, which does NOT remove other settings. Chrome will be exactly the same when you reinstall.

    Local SettingsApplication DataGoogle – I have a Google folder listed here but all it contains is SketchUp and something else – no Chrome to be found anywhere. This is driving me mad, never using anything Google ever again.

    If you’re using Windows, just go to your program files (computer/local disc (C)/program files (or /program files (x86) if you use 64 bit), look for the Google folder and delete it. You will need administrator’s permissions. Once it is deleted please cross-check to make sure ALL Google files have been deleted then reboot your computer. Chrome will now download and install seamlessly. I would NOT advise that you start fooling around with registry commands if, like me, you’re just an ordinary user who doesn’t want to fiddle with anything geekish!

    We are all looking at how to remove Google from your machine. I have a regular registry cleanup of Google daily and everyday there are numerous entries of Google that cause issues continuously on my machine. I think we should do a class action against google to stop adding entries on our computers without our authorization. Microsoft asks and even gives the opportunity to not update your machine, but Google never does. They just invade. If this is true just think of the privacy they are collecting. Can anyone tell me how to block any Google entries from getting to my machine?
