Hello everyone,
I've tried removing Chromium from my pc,using add/remove programs. But when I click on remvoe,the hourglas stays on briefly,then after nothing happens. I then chose to delete it manually,successfully,but not completely. Because on startup,chromium comes on. I've looked in Local C: under Documents and Settings--->Start Menu--->startup for both all users and Home,Chromium isn't there. I've even look under regedit,not even there. And yet,it's still in add/remove programs.
Your advice most appreciated

regards
Paul

By Chromium you mean Google Chrome? Maybe that's why you can't find it in the Registry?
You should not remove a program by manually deleting it, you need to use it's uninstaller. Try using the free Revo Uninstaller, be sure to use the Advanced method to remove all remnants from the Registry.
