Google Chrome - Application folder - Access Denied

Have got a client that has upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and since the upgrade the Google Chrome application folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application is denying access to it due to security issues.

Has anyone got a resolve to allow us to remove the application folder so that we can reinstalled Google Chrome and have a new Application folder that allows us full access to it?

Take ownership of the folder, modify permissions, delete it.

Have tried this but it's greyed out within the permissions/security tab so cannot do anything.
Have also tried using attrib within CMD but no luck there.

Attrib is for attributes, not ownership. Use takeown.exe on an elevated command prompt.
