Google Chrome always reinstalls automatically after deletion

Since a few months my Google Chrome Browser always installs automatically after I deleted it.

I had to use "revo uninstaller" software to remove it, because it was not possilbe to remove it otherwise.

Then it came back again.

I used MC Afee Total Protection to scan my PC and the software found 1 ""unwanted program" which it removed.

Now, a few days later, Google Chrome came back again and really disturbs my PC working normally.

I looked around on the internet and it looks like I'm dealing with the Deal4me virus.

Please can someone tell me what I have to do to get rid of Google Chrome definitely?

Thanks for your help.

Sounds like spyware is onboard so have moved this to Malware Discussion > Home User Assistance.

I suggest you run Malwarebytes Free and AdwCleaner from this link:  Anti-Spyware/Malware/Hijacker Tools

(Look down to 3rd party tools)

BTW I would advise you also post on Google Forums regarding this.

Ooops, sorry Peter. I neglected to see your response...The removal Guide recommends those 2 applications anyway.

It worked fine, it looks like I was able to remove all viruses from my PC.

Was able to remove Chrome in a normal way aswell so I think it's OK now.

Many thanks for your time and help.

Kind regards

If I may add to the Discussion, to remove the (Deal4me Virus/Pup. I recommend using this reputable removal guide:

How to remove Deal4Me Ads (Virus Removal Guide)

Hope this helps
