Google Chrome is classified as a virus by Microsoft Edge

Microsoft made an effort to promote its own Edge browser and prevent users from using rivals like Google Chrome. However, they encountered a problem: Google Chrome is incorrectly described by Microsoft Edge as possibly harmful software.

This occurred because Google Chrome’s installer, ChromeSetup.exe, was deemed possibly lethal by Microsoft Edge. About 20% of the stable versions of Microsoft Edge 116 contained this error.

Edge has security mechanisms to shield users from harmful files, but it mistakes ChromeSetup.exe for a problem.

As a result, when users attempted to install Google Chrome using Microsoft Edge, a warning notice stating that “ChromeSetup.exe could be bad for your device” may have appeared. Still interested in keeping it? The downloaded file could be kept or deleted by users.

It’s appealing that this occurred while Microsoft’s own browser was competing with Google Chrome, even though it may be a software error. Microsoft has been attempting to increase Edge usage. Microsoft encourages people to use Edge when they search for Google Chrome.

You don’t need to get a new web browser, the statement reads. Because Microsoft Edge is quick, secure, and cutting-edge, Microsoft believes you should use it. You may be able to save both time and money. Take a shot at it.
