I can't remove Chromium - Help needed

Unread postby 1aleem » February 4th, 2019, 6:56 pm

I was trying to download an application and I somehow downloaded a program called Chromium by accident. I cannot not uninstall this program at all the usual way. I've tried running spybot but it doesn't pick it up. Can someone please help me remove this? Thanks in advance.

Please note that all instructions given are customised for this computer only, the tools used may cause damage if used on a computer with different infections.

If you think you have similar problems, please post a log in the Malware Removal forum and wait for help.

Failure to post replies within 3 days will result in this thread being closed.


Hello 1aleem,

Welcome to Malware Removal! My name is mAL_rEm018, but feel free to call me mAL. I will be helping you with your malware related problems :)

Please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.


Because of this, I advise you to backup any personal files and folders before you start.

To make sure everything goes smoothly, I would like you to observe the following rules:
  • You must have Administrator rights, permissions for this computer.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start another topic.
  • Perform all actions in the order given.
  • If you don't know, stop and ask!
  • DO NOT run any other fix or removal tools unless instructed to do so!
  • Don't attempt to install any new software (other than those I ask you to) until your computer is clean.
  • DO NOT post for help at any other forum. Applying fixes from multiple help sites can cause problems.
  • I advise you to print the instructions if possible, since your internet connection might not be available during some of the fixes.
  • Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear, therefore stick with this topic until I give you the "all clear".

I am currently reviewing your logs and will return as soon as possible, with additional instructions. In the meantime I would like you to read and get acquainted with the following topic: HOW TO GET HELP IN THIS FORUM - everyone must read this, where the conditions for receiving help here are explained.

Cracked - Illegal Software

May I draw your attention to the topic: ALL USERS OF THIS FORUM MUST READ THIS FIRST, which you should have read before posting for help. The section here explains why we bring this to your attention.

If you wish to receive help from us, you must remove any and all of the following from your computer:
  • Illegal software
  • Cracked software
  • illegal software key generators

Once the software and/or keygens have been removed, if you still need help, please start a new thread... include a link to your closed topic and include NEW FRST logs :
  • FRST.txt.
  • Addition.txt.
  • Details of the problems you're experiencing.
Wait for a new helper. Do not reply to your topic before a helper has replied.

This topic is now closed.
