    Use Revo Uninstaller and do the advanced option.
    Used it, doesn't show up, only in Registry.

    Don't expand the google folder.....click the drop down arrows so it's back to the first google folder. Now, select it by right clicking it and then select delete.

    I looked in Regedit, Google is in there in the com.microsoft.browsercore. it wont delete from registry.

    The Google Native Messaging entry is an integral part of Win10 and will not delete. I had same question earlier. Pertains to messaging between extensions from what I read. You may google for more info. My guess is MSN used Google's system as part of Win10.

    If you have Chrome browser installed it will also be listed under this entry. However, it can be deleted with the removal of Chrome browser, but the Native Messaging stays.

    Not sure about the com.microsoft.browsercore entry. Perhaps this is HP (your system) specific.

    Clean install of Win 10, on HP 15-f233wm. only two browsers, Edge and IE. HP Support APP, I saved all the downloads of the software/driver from HP, installed one at a time. Ccleaner has a download on their install, I unchecked it so it wouldn't.

    Every time I restart my computer, Google Chrome is defaulted, and not Firefox. I always set Firefox as the default. Is there a condition that changes this all the time?
    Just for understanding, Chrome is listed as default under default browser (settings/apps/default) after changing to Firefox, and not just a "nag" from Chrome upon startup wanting to be default ? And when you browse, Chrome is the browser ?

    You may want to run sfc/scannow for corrupt files. Also, consider resetting/reinstalling Chrome.
