    Chromium - self installed


    Would appreciate your assistance!

    Have a friends laptop where Chromium installed on its own, and keeps popping up when the computer starts.
    Went to Task Manager/Startup, and Disabled 3 entries of Chromium. However, they cannot be deleted.
    Next, found my way to C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\Application, and deleted the folder and info there.
    Still, the 3 entries in Task Manger are not gone.

    CCleaner does not see them. Chromium App is not listed in Programs and Features/Uninstall.

    Any ideas of how the 3 entries in TM can be removed?

    Thanks for your help.

    Try Revo Uninstaller and see if finds it, if it does, let it delete it and all of it's sub entries.

    Thanks for the replies. I appreciate the help

    Revo does not list it.

    On the Local, Local Low, and Roaming, in AppData? OK Got them.

    Can you give me the paths for these?
    %LocalAppData% ????
    Sure first you have to have hidden files shown .

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	Capture.PNG 
Views:	3 
Size:	16.9 KB 
ID:	155471

    Then go to C:\Users\XXXX\AppData and under App Data there will be three folders

    Local
    Local Low
    Roaming

    The XXXX will be the user name.

    I hope you find it the only other method I know would be to hack through the Registry. If you have to do that back it up first.

    Thanks!!

    Went thru the AppData, then backed up the two Registry keys below, and deleted any Chromium entries there:

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx

    Entries are gone from Task Manager! Happy Camper!!
