First time posting here. :)

Google Chrome stopped responding yesterday. It doesn't open and it refuses to be uninstalled! I keep getting this:

"Please close all Google Chrome windows and try again"

Further attempts to "kill" the chrome.exe process ended in a similar fashion: "Error terminating process. Access is denied"

Does anyone know how to remove Google Chrome for a future clean install? I'd much appreciate it if you could help me.

I'm attaching the reports from Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) (x64) Version: 30-10-2019 01, as requested.

Thank you in advance.
