I seem to have downloaded Google chrome by accident and have lost all my favourites. How do i restore to the previous version of google that i ws running on XP?

You can try a System Restore (SR) to a point before you installed Google Chrome.

Probably won't work as SR doesn't restore data - in this case data in your profile - but you never know.

Btw, what does 'the previous version of google' mean? G

CCleaner has recently added a Chrome installation, when you install/update it, unless you turn off the option and opt out.

Have you recently made changes to CCleaner?

Hi all! yes I recently updated CCleaner. I guessed that was the problem. Can I safely remove Google Chrome from Add/Remove programs in Control Panel? All I want is "Google-Windows Internet Explorer" back again with all my favourites listed for me.

..and you can import your favourites from IE to Google Chrome if you wish.
Click on the 'spanner' icon, choose 'options' and 'personal stuff' and 'Import favorites from another browser'
