Chromium is an open-source web browser - though there's a bad one around if you installed it.

Alan hopefully.....

If you go to start and find "add/remove programs" or similar chromium should be in the list. The other option is to restore the computer to an earlier time before chromium was on it. What type is the laptop?
If you don't try you never know if you can do it.
