    I have a new laptop that came with Windows 10 installed. After working well for a month, it regularly stops loading any webpage, and the only thing that works some of the time is to reboot the entire computer. I wanted to uninstall, but I get the message, "Please uninstall all Google Chrome windows including those running in Windows 8". I have no idea what this has to do with my computer, or how to fix it or get Chrome off my computer

    A) Ctrl + Shift + Esc > calls up task manager > click Startup tab > scroll the list and look for anything marked Google or Chrome > make sure that entry is Disabled > click Processes tab > scroll the list for anything marked Google or Chrome > use End Task on any processes found

    B) In the Search Box on taskbar, type in Programs > click the Programs & Features result > scroll the list for anything marked Google or Chrome > Uninstall any entries found

    Prime suspect: Google Updater. This is a background program which, IMHO, operates below many users conscious authorization and wastes valuable resources. It's a tenacious bugger. Exorcise it.

    You probably should not need to use Restore on your computer if you follow A & B above. But if issues persist, a reset may be in order.
