I can't open Google Chrome on an Acer laptop with Windows 10 installed. There was a strange problem first whereas it was set with compatability mode for Vista, but I removed that setting. Now what happens is that I double tap it, but it only requests permission to perform changes on the PC and doesn't open. The icon has an admin-shield icon on it. I've tried to reinstall it, but the installer is stuck on the downloading screen. The standalone installer, however, works - but with the same end result.

Any idea what could be the cause?

You should try to delete your profile folder (backup bookmarks first). Just delete "\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\" (default contains your profile data) Good luck! Found here: Website with chrome wont open fixes
