I need to uninstall Google Chrome that I installed myself

Customer Question

I need to uninstall Google Chrome that I installed myself here at work. It is incompatible with Creo Viewer, so I need to have my IT guys install their earlier (compatible) version of Chrome. "Google" does not appear in the Programs and Features list where I could normally uninstall it. Since you guys made it possible for me to install Chrome without admin rights, can you help me uninstall it without admin rights? Then I can get out of being in trouble for installing an incompatible Chrome, and causing IT this heartburn.

So if for some reason Google Chrome does not appear in the programs and features list this is the resolution to remove it

Manually delete the Chrome folder. Right-click the Chrome icon on the Start screen, go to "Open File Location", which opens where the shortcut is inside the Start menu folders. Right-click that again, and once more choose "open file location", which will find the real chrome.exe (not a shortcut). Go up one level and delete the entire Chrome folder.
