Chrome always runs on startup! (is there anyway to stop it)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Is there any way to stop chrome opening on startup? it isn't in any user's startup folder or listed for any user's task manager "start-up" tab. 

Have looked on google but no-one could figure it out (That was 7 months ago, so something could have changed).

 

thx

Hi

 

Try this

- Start

- Type --startup apps

 

 

Chrome may be there.

Hmm does it open in the new tab page or on some website? Maybe some other program is and it opens a web page Everytime.

Uninstall it.... you may think I'm joking... I'm not.

 

Get rid of it and install firefox instead... or Opera, Safari... almost anything except Edge & Chrome. They are not good for your privacy or your data protection... and Chromes new 'ad blocking' by default doesn't block 99% of the ads because that's it's business... and it does it's best to break functionality of plugins that block is insipid data slurping.
