    Is chrome.7z file a trojan? I pulled up info concerning this file, and several sites listed it as a trojan/hiding place for trojans. It is a rather large file, and also I had a large download from google, (this file included), of almost half a gig. It downloaded a Dollar General App w/it and I had the darnedest time deleting it. Then I turn off at night and the next day it is back. And now, I am getting a resolving host message, and slow web page opening.
    Thanks for any help.

    It depends on the location. Do you have the entire path to the file?

    It could be the Google Chrome offline installer inside a zip file which it sounds like since you had a download from Google.

    Yes I do. C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\78.0.3904.108\Installer. And I think you are correct because of your mentioning the Installer folder.
    Thank you for your prompt response.
