Hi there,

My google chrome seems to uninstall itself every couple of days and i am only left with the shortcuts.

It all started a couple of weeks ago i got a kosong.bron.tok virus but cleared it up with malwarebytes and combofix, but then the problem with chrome started happening.

I tried reinstalling it but the same thing happens. I also tried system restore but no joy. Another thing that happens is my desktop picture also disappears and im left with a solid color.

It sounds like a virus but i ran malwarebytes combofix and avira, all seperatly in safemode with no detections

Its a quad core machine with xp pro


Any ideas?

thanks

Ken

After you install check the path where Chrome is installed, I had a similar problem and found that Chrome was getting installed in the User folder, rather than in the Program Files path.
