Sometimes the Windows installer gets a bunch of changes backed up. If it seems not to be responding correctly, you may need to restart Windows to complete accumulated changes before it will run normally again.

Also, Google has a help article for when Google Chrome does not uninstall normally. I haven't tried it myself: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/111899

I cannot install things because this computer has limited disk space. Do you have any other suggestions taromarka2?

The help article doesn't help jscher2000, and I don't know what you're talking about restarting Windows. It doesn't do anything when I click on the "remove" button on add or remove programs.

Hi Firefoxhelper123, by restarting Windows, I mean shutting down Windows and starting it up again.

You can make space by removing the Google Chrome "User Data" folder and maybe cleanup files in the %temp% folder.

  • C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\

The "Application Data" folder in XP/Win2K and the "AppData" folder in Windows Vista and Windows 7 and later versions are hidden folders.


You can also remove the Google Chrome installation folder manually and search the history for references to the Google Chrome installation folder and possibly the Google Chrome "User Data" folder

That makes no sense. If you have Google Chrome and Chrome Remote Desktop, I think you may be able to help me.

I'm locking this thread since the Forum rules and guidelines specify:

Posts in the Firefox support forum must be either questions about the use of Firefox or answers to those questions. Users who post about things other than Firefox support will be directed to an alternative discussion place (ex: mozillaZine) if appropriate. 

People have attempted to help you uninstall Google Chrome without success. You should try the forums at https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/chrome or you could try a Windows forum such as windowsbbs.com
