Re Google Chrome. I was surprised to find out that it was removed from the computer. It was my ISP technician that remotely installed it. I plan to reinstall it at a future date.
It's your choice to reinstall it, but i would recommend FireFox if you are looking for another browser.
I feel we can consider the topic closed.
Ok lets cleanup and remove the tools we used.Clean up with OTL
You can now delete any tools/logs we used if they remain on your Desktop.
- Double-click OTL.exe to start the program. This will remove some of the tools we used to clean your pc.
- Close all other programs apart from OTL as this step will require a reboot
- On the OTL main screen, press the CleanUp! button
- Say Yes to the prompt and then allow the program to reboot your computer.
