These days, chrome basically IS a virus.

Screw this, I'm going back to Firefox!

@heime: You don't even know if the virus is from chrome or someplace else.

@andyqee: Chrome is a fairly reputable web browser. In some ways better than Firefox. Provided you downloaded it from its official website, you shouldn't have any problems.

Ok, chrome works pretty well on 'most' systems, but it's nowhere near as reputable as Mozilla's support. Mozilla gave me help last year when I was using win98 and an outdated version of firefox, while chrome does not respond to most troubleshooting questions they receive at all. Recently, I uninstalled chrome to rid my pc of google update's cpu hogging to no avail and received no help. I have left them a message asking what makes their updater use a fast pc's cpu and guess what... NO REPLY! :ouch:

Wake up guys google is not who they used to be - how their terms and conditions have changed, how they force updates and also how they allow 3d party toolbars unwanted access. Never mind the attitude they take to their customers. I owe a great apology to MR. Jeeves..
