Chrome won't open, won't uninstall

Recommended Posts

About a week ago Chrome stopped working. It is the browser I use the most so I had it pinned to the taskbar along with Firefox.

 

Decided to reinstall it but it won't uninstall. I tried REVO Uninstaller but it stopped and said close all instances of Chrome. There were none running so went to task manager where I discovered about six instances of chrome.exe running. None of them could be removed or stopped. Tried removing it with add/remove and CCleaner, no dice.

 

So now, even though Chrome is still on my computer, I can neither open it nor remove it. Google is consistent though, it has consistently ignored my pleas for help for over a week now.

 

Is this familiar to anyone, does anyone know how to get this piece of lead out of my computer? [:(] Thank you.

Another suggestion would be to attempt to remove it in Safe Mode.

Boot to Safe Mode When you boot up before it starts Windows and after the initial BIOS checks, hit the F8 key several times. The start of Windows is usually accompanied by a single Beep. If normal Windows comes up try, try again. A Black screen with choices should come up, choose Safe Mode.id="size1">

Thank you for your response. This morning Chrome opened. It is the first time in about two weeks and I have done nothing different so of course I won't be able to replicate it....Google owns the universe and all I have is a hammer. [:o)]
