I plan to uninstall Chrome completely. How can I do it?

When I say completely, I mean all of the profile related data, the cached files, the settings, everything.

Does the default uninstall (via Add/Remove programs) do all of the above and more?

My operating system is Windows 7 x64.


I found these two links here and here.

I am going to attempt both of these, I will let you know how it proceeds shortly.

Revo Uninstaller is perfect for this. It has options for how extreme an uninstall you want to do. Choose the most comprehensive one.

+1 for a working solution! Thanks! But, do I have to install another product to uninstall an existing one? Instead, is there an alternate solution? How would I fare if I just went ahead and deleted the folder C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Google – Kanini Dec 12 '10 at 1:39
@Kanini: you would still have a lot of left over junk in the computer... – studiohack Dec 12 '10 at 1:56
@studiohack: Thanks! And, how do I get ride of all that left over junk? – Kanini Dec 12 '10 at 2:03
@Kanini: I agree with @nrhine1: Revo Uninstaller is a very good tool for this kind of thing. well worth the install...I use it all the time myself, and it just finds and cleans so much junk! – studiohack Dec 12 '10 at 2:06

Iobit Uninstaller is a light and FREE tool that helps you to remove unwanted programs and folders without any hassle and I use all the time when needing to remove programs from my PC (instead of using the default Add/Remove Programs option in Windows Explorer).

Features include:

  • Remove Unwanted Programs and Folders Super Fast
  • 1-Click Removal of Annoying Stubborn Toolbars
  • No More Leftovers with "Powerful Scan" and "Forced Uninstall"
  • Portable version also available

It works along similar lines as the aforementioned Revo Uninstaller as mentioned by @nrhine1.
