Latest Chrome Update leaving history.

When we install the latest Chrome update and a few earlier, the install does a horrible job at clean up and it is leaving registry entries of the old install even though the latest Chrome shows in add remove programs. Therefore, KACE is not reporting correctly.  Out of 400 computers, around 200 plus are leaving registry entries and I was able to fix them earlier by hand removing the registry entries, but the next update put me back in the same condition.  Anyone know of a script or switch that forces chrome to do a clean up instead of hand removing the registry entries?  I've scoured the internet and see lots of "me too" but no how to fix it.

Any help would be most appreciated.

can use this as a batch file, works for me normally.

@echo off
set ChromeDir=C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data
del /q /s /f "%ChromeDir%"
rd /s /q "%ChromeDir%"
