    That didn't do it, but it didn't remove my bookmarks or memorized login details (after I uninstalled I realized I might have to make some notes on some of those first lol) or browsing history so if uninstalling browsing data doesn't remove that, what does? I also unistalled google desktop and the google stuff for IE.

    My gut says this is where the crap is hiding. Maybe I switch back to Firefox for a while. At least the computer is running a bunch better.

    OK - I see my Norton antivirus definitions are not up to date, and the live update crashes. Last update was Nov 21.
    Also when I open Chrome after reinstalling it I get a Norton warning that flashes too fast to get it all, but there is a number 2156 as a ref I think, and it says something like a "Jabber IM connection" something.

    Methinks there is something nasty other than just chrome.

    Norton says to reinstall live update. That requires me go back to my computer guy as he installed it when I had him set up me brand new laptop and I don't have that option. He is at work today so I am off to get this fixed there...
