It's not Google Chrome, it's the web sites you visit, naughty boy,,

Might I ask which anti virus you use.

I use Google Chrome and I have no issue with viruses - as advised, it may not be GC that is the cause of your problems.

Getting rid of Chrome was the only way I could get rid of Mcafee pop ups some time back. Scammers use the Mcafee name a lot. I've been trouble free since.

what "viruses" have had & what was their effect?

chrome is just the browser it's more likely the dodgy sites you've been visiting. I suggest a malware protector of some sort.

//A computer virus is a type of malicious software, or malware, that spreads between computers and causes damage to data and software. Computer viruses aim to disrupt systems, cause major operational issues, and result in data loss and leakage.//

Download Malwarebytes - it's free & it works,

I have been using Firefox and Brave for ages, to the point that I didn't need GC. Anyway a few months ago, I was experiencing problems with my 2 browsers, yeh too much hard porn ! Lol

That I thought why not give GC another try!! Within seconds of downloading it I was getting countless pop ups Inc those dodgy ones !! I instantly deleted it!! 


I never get pop ups in Chrome or any browser.  I don't know what I'm doing differently to you - except avoiding dodgy sites
