    Are you signed on using the built in Administrator account?

    Anyway, log off and on and download it again - it can't find the installer.

    Looks like you are trying to install an installation package for "Shredder" not Chrome.

    Check these links.

    As the links above indicate, I too recommend removing shredder. That is probably what is causing you the problems....

    You might want to uninstall Chrome & get another download from here---

    https://www.google.com/chrome/browse...top/index.html

    Read the prompts & skip any offers for other stuff.

    edit--- the link above is for the regular x32 Chrome.
    This link is for the Beta x64 Chrome---

    Also, try AdwCleaner. https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewd.../1-adwcleaner/


    If above suggestions do not work, if possible, do a System Restore before you initially installed Chrome.

    hi everyone

    I have done a system restore, this has put the Egis Tec Shredder programme back on my computer, should I uninstall
    the whole windows locker suite or just shredder before i install chrome again.

    What is the best way of uninstalling shredder.

    In addition to the replies here, I would encourage you to use Google and do more research, then make that decision. Also, go to the Acer forum where others may have the same issue. Discussion Forums - Acer Community

    RevoUninstaller is a popular uninstall program. Personally, I just use the Windows Uninstaller from the Control Panel, then manually uninstall registry entries and folders if necessary. Also, use CCcleaner to clean leftover registry entries.
