    Please help me get rid of this Chromium browser from my computer. It is very nasty and having various home page hijacker with it. My anti-virus program also detects several malware on Chromium or any applications associated with it.

    This thing started after I have downloaded and installed PDF Converter program few days ago. I don’t remember installing any browser program such as Chromium. But this browser suddenly appears on the desktop. Chromium is opening on its own performing various redirects and homepage.

    I tried removing Chromium but I cannot find it in the list of installed Windows program. There is also no folder or files which is associated to Chromium browser.

    Please help me.

    If Chromium browser arrives on your computer as bundled product, there is no trace on the installation folder. First, you need to remove the culprit freeware that you have installed which you think brought Chromium.

    To see the actual location of Chromium Browser, please do the following.

    1. Close all running application on the computer and leave only Chromium browser open.

    2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del on your keyboard to access Task Manager.

    3. Once Windows Task Manager is open, go to Processes tab.

    4. Look for any suspicious entry under Image Name.

    5. Right-Click on the item and click Open File Location from the pop-up list.

    6. You may now see the folder, file, or program associated with Chromium.

    7. Go to Windows Start, “Search Program and Files” field. Type appwiz.cpl. Press Enter.

    8. This will open a window where you can uninstall programs.

    9. Under Name lists, look for the Chromium associated program and uninstall it.
