Here's a fun one for ya's.
When my computer was running Windows 7, I mucked around with some registry stuff for Google Chrome. I've forgotten exactly what. It may have been so it let me run Chrome Canary independently or something in that vein.
I've since patched my system to Windows Technical Preview.
Occasionally I find Chrome displaying a little notification in the top-right of the browser window saying that it can not update and that it needs to reinstall. Not only does clicking on the link to reinstall take me to the page about their space project, but trying to re-use a chrome installer I have on my system produces the linked message.
I feel I am doomed to not be able to update Chrome ever again. Not that there's anything wrong with the current build, it's just that since getting an Android phone I can sign in to Chrome on it but cannot sync bookmarks and whatnot due to an inconsistent passphrase. Not that I recall ever setting a passphrase, but it could only be so many things, and none of them work, so I'm guessing that also circles back to this issue.
Ps. I have since uninstalled Chrome Canary / don't consider it in this issue.
To be clear:
My problem is not being able to update Chrome due to inconsistent group policy settings, apparently.
My question is: What can I do about it?
