After switching browsers from Firefox to Google Chrome I've tried all the solutions that I know of, going into the registry and manually changing the default program there, going into the control panel and trying to figure out how to manually change the protocol, uninstalling Firefox completely, restarting my computer, downloading Default Programs Editor, and running every single one of these in administrator mode.
I STILL cannot get Chrome to open ANY hyperlinks in Skype or program links or anything that involves FTP, HTTP, or HTTPS protocol. I haven't even been able to find Chrome in the list of available programs that I'm allowed to set the protocol to. I'm getting pretty tired of even thinking about forcing the protocol as Google Chrome.
Here's an imgur album of the screenshots that I'd imagine would help: http://imgur.com/a/53NE5
