I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sounds like you have a rogue browser installation.

I'd suggest you first run an anti-malware tool like MalwareBytes - https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download/

If the scan comes up clean, then this link may help:  https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-start/chromium-app-prompt-keeps-showing-up-to-install/d57a0f6d-ac97-4566-8b65-0a8eaf984164


Which version of Windows are you running and how did you Uninstall the Chromium browser the last time it installed itself?
