Control how Chrome Cleanup reports data to Google

If unset, should Chrome Cleanup detect unwanted software, it may report metadata about the scan to Google in accordance with policy set by SafeBrowsingExtendedReportingEnabled. Chrome Cleanup will then ask the user if they wish to clean up the unwanted software. The user can choose to share results of the cleanup with Google to assist with future unwanted software detection. These results contain file metadata, automatically installed extensions and registry keys as described by the Chrome Privacy Whitepaper.

If disabled, should Chrome Cleanup detect unwanted software, it will not report metadata about the scan to Google, overriding any policy set by SafeBrowsingExtendedReportingEnabled. Chrome Cleanup will ask the user if they wish to clean up the unwanted software. Results of the cleanup will not be reported to Google and the user will not have the option to do so.
