Google Chrome will not uninstall

  Snrub 01:58 27 Jun 2009

I was trying to update Google Chrome because a new version has been released and the current one will not connect to the internet but when I try to run the program a message comes up that I must close Google Chrome which is not running since I am doing this through IE8.
When I try to uninstall Google Chrome program a message comes up that I do not have administrator rights which I do have.
Any ideas please?

Goto the tools dropdown (spanner) and click 'About Google Chrome'. The new version is

Like I said Google Chrome will not connect to internet just says 'resolving host' and nothing happens. This is why I either wanted to unistall it or update it, either way it runs so far then blocks saying shut down all chrome applications which are already shut or in the case of uninstall it says I do not have administrator rights to my own computer!

A lot of people on this forum suggest Revo click here for uninstall problems. So I am with julius44 on this one.

I'd have a look in task manager and see how many 'Chrome.exe' processes are running. End them then try uninstalling.

Found the problem eventually Google Chrome had auto updated but my Firewall was blocking it!
