    As well as make sure the installed version is the latest. There were issues with earlier versions of Google Chrome & Win 8 CP/RP. Hopefully this has been resolved.

    Or just stop using it all together. Eh?

    Firefox is actually a better browser and does not exhibit the characteristics of a virus, by creeping into peoples computers uninvited and unannounced.

    I'm constantly taking it (Chrome) OFF of my customer's PC's and they have no idea what it is, where it came from, or how it ever got on their PC.
    Install 'Super Anti-Spyware' and you've got Chrome. There is NO OPT-OUT!

    So since Chrome acts exactly like a virus or Trojan, I'm labeling it as such.

    If one does a Custom Install of SuperAntiSpyware (option at the bottom of the huge yellow page), then Chrome isn't installed. I have & use SAS daily to scan for ad/tracking cookies, which usually comes from use of IE/Opera (my wife has difficulty with the FF NoScript addon). On ALL of my Windows installs. This app updates to a newer version once a month or so, one just has to open their eyes & LOOK for Custom Install, as one would any other app.

    These cookies, actually a form of spyware, aren't always harmless or benign, as some is led to believe. Read paragraph #2 of the below article to see, they are a major privacy concern in the US & EU. A short daily scan with SAS purges the system of most of these.

    HTTP cookie - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Speaking of spyware, I agree with TM that Chrome is not a safe browser to use. Google is in the business of information collection, from any possible source. This includes those who uses any of their products.

    MS has an equivalent of most of Google products under the Bing name. There is Bing Search, Bing Maps, Bing Shopping & other services. Firefox is a superior browser to Chrome (just re-entered 2nd place), while it does has Google as it's default home page, that can be changed to many others. I use MSN, which by default has Bing as their search engine. Many email providers has a home page.

    Firefox's search engine can also be changed by the drop down menu to the left of the Search Box. Being that I use AVG as my AV, not only do I have their custom search bar, it's also a Search Box option. So is Bing, Yahoo & WOT. IxQuick can also be added, it shows more "https" sites than others does.

    There has been enough complaints with Windows 8 RP & Chrome to justify recommending not to use the browser. For those who doesn't prefer IE or Firefox, Opera is another decent (and underrated) choice.

    And note that ANY browser, if weighted with too many extensions (addons), will be slow & use a lot of system resources, and can possibly crash the OS (BSOD).
