It wasn't even just affecting chrome, the same thing was happening on safari too. Original Poster. Mike Edelstein. All Replies 9.
Jo Ann Brown. This problem started for us last night. I found this thread and used one suggested command in Terminal to get rid of the app. Chrome will stay open but will no longer be an installed application.
Chrome will not close, force quit, or uninstall - keeps popping open - Google Chrome Help
I threw away the dock icon and restarted the machine. Then I went through the login items and made sure nothing unusual in there after the restart. I did a clean install of Chrome but the problem immediately started again. I had to repeat the Terminal command process to kill the app. Something malicious is on this machine is attacking the browser so I am on to figure that out, but at least you will be able to remove Chrome until the malware is removed.
Took 6 hours to scan and sequester the infected files but I reinstalled Chrome and we are back in business. Good Luck! Joe Fernandes. Amber Blair Keyes, This was my exact problem and your advice worked like a charm thank you.
