    Coincidence.
    Google owns 65.13% of the browser market shares.

    I don't know how many users that would be but in the millions or billions. If Chrome were the source of malware, then you'd see lots of people posting about malware problems and abandoning the browser in droves.

    Never said it was google I said the virus attached to google chrome only way to get rid of it was uninstall chrome, it might be ok
    To install now but I won’t until google answers the problem with the virus, if you have a browser and you use it , it
    Should not pick up a virus , mine did for several years.

    You probably picked up an unwanted extension. I would have asked you to reset Chrome before uninstalling it.

    I was trying to do too many things at once. I posted this
    Google owns 65.13% of the browser market shares.

    When I meant to post Chrome owns 65.13% of the browser market shares.
