When this problem happens, please follow the workarounds below. Workaround 1: Force Stop Chrome and Restart Mac/Windows When Google Chrome cannot connect to the Internet, you can click on "X" icon to close Chrome. Easy solution : 1- Go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\ and find the folder "update". I blocked tools.on localhost temporarily so that I could install previous version and prevent updating to the version that is breaking the label printing.
Even using the official Google page with the templates did NOTHING: https://support.google.com/installer/answer/146164?
hl=en I followed scrupulously the instructions of that page, the keys in the registry are all correct, but still going to the "About Google Chrome" when the program is opened, I can see the wheel going around and a few seconds later the update is forced and done.
As we all know, if we want to access the internet, we need a web browser like Google Chrome.
But sometimes we will encounter a problem that Google Chrome is not connecting to the internet which happens not only on Win/Mac but also i Phone/Android. Don't worry, we will show your workarounds according to different cases in this article.
- Now that you have a copy just delete the "Update" folder. If I check the "About" page I get a message it is updating and after a few seconds that it can't update and I should check my firewall.
I use Commodo Firewall HIPS feature to stop even executing.
I have tried using the standalone installer of Google, on a Windows 8.1 machine 64Bits - and yes all the keys are set to : Dword: Auto Update Check Period Minutes Value: 0 Dword: Disable Auto Update Checks Checkbox Value Value: 1 Dword: Update Default Value: 0 Dword: Update Value: 0 (this last one requires the service(s) to not be disabled - gupdate/gupdatem) ...
both in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Update AND HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Policies\Google\Update since it is a 64-bit machine.
We automate the Chrome install and disable the auto update with Chef.
