    I wiped a partition and reinstalled XP SP3. When I logged on today Chrome was installed!!

    I only added Avast, Firefox, Ccleaner and Adobe Flash player.

    I do not know which one of these stealthily installed Chrome. Since this is my small internet only partition (4 gigs) I find that Chrome takes up 141 megabytes!!, way too much!!

    Hope I do not have trouble uninstalling it.

    Both CCleaner and Avast! have tie-ups with Chrome.

    I think OP has been a bit negligent while installing ;)

    Yep, I let the ball drop on this installation. I usually just re-image but I felt like torturing myself, so I went full reinstall. :D
