I'm using Windows 7. For some weird reason when ever I go About Chrome and it tries to update I get "Update server not available: error 7". Why is this? How do I get around this?

This is because Chrome is having network problems, or more likely you're having network problems. Try to resolve this by downloading an off-line copy directly.

"or more likely you're having network problems." so the solution is to 'download' a offline copy? – Not Kyle stop stalking me Apr 5 '12 at 20:56
If it works.. it works.. Not sure why that's just a crappy message Google gives backs. Feel free to improve the answer or question. – Evan Carroll Apr 5 '12 at 21:04
I just amazed you were able to download a copy without an Internet connection... impressive. – Not Kyle stop stalking me Apr 5 '12 at 22:30
I have a valid internet connection -- I'd guess it's bunk Google code authored by some underpaid MIT grad in a bright orange room... if we're going to make assumptions it's only fair I get one. – Evan Carroll Apr 5 '12 at 22:33
Oh I didn't realize these instructions were from Google. I hope you understand I was being sarcastic because I thought this was your solution to the problem... Either way, this seems like commonsense. Did it really need to be repeated? – Not Kyle stop stalking me Apr 5 '12 at 22:57

Reinstalling the Google Software Updater solved it for me.
