    Google Chrome has stopped working on my ASUS notepad (Windows 7), in that every time I try and open it it fails to load and then the message 'Google Chrome has stopped working- A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.' pops up. I have run malware detection software and have found nothing, and the only thing different is that a file named with a string of nonsensical letters and numbers has appeared in my OS, with -the program MPSigStub in it. I have run malware detection on MPSigStub and it seems to be non-malicious, but I have Googled it and I have found other people experiencing similar issues. I know it is necessary for Windows Defender, but I have other programs I use for that purpose and I definitely don't need it. I really need to get rid of it so my notepad becomes functional again, but every time I try to delete it it tells me I need administrator permission to do so, even though I am an administrator. I have tried running a system restore, but that turns up the message 'System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computer's system files and settings were not changed. Details: System Restore failed while restoring the registry from the restore point. An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x80070005)'. For some reason I can also no longer open up my Settings either so I'm quite limited in what I can do on my own and I really need some help. Sorry for the wall of text, I just wanted to give you all the information I have. Thank you. :confused:
