Chrome Version 25 issue.

Q: Chrome Version 25 issue.


Chrome recently got updated to 25.0.1364.152 m.

One thing I noticed though that it does not preseve webpage settings any longer.
Try to zoom out any page, close Chrome and open the page again, it is back to its original zoom.

I have been using Chrome for a long time and this bug is very annoying indeed....


Preferred Solution: Chrome Version 25 issue.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Chrome Version 25 issue.

I use the same version and don't have that problem. It remembers my last zoom level after exiting and restarting Chrome.

Perhaps try a reinstallation of Chrome to fix the problem? Or possibly resetting Chrome using this guide:

after installing an application, a windows pop up appeared, saying "The program cant start because d3dx9_36.dll is missing from your computer. So, i looked at my DxDiag version, its DirectX11...So what do you think is the problem? i went to this site How to download and install DirectX, but i found a lot version of DirectX, that i don't know which one is compatible with mine so that i can be able to run the program. I've done reinstalling, and still it happens..

Additional info:
win7 64bit OS, sp1
currently running DirectX11

Please tell me which version should i download and how to install it, if it is hard, if it is as simple as this "download and install then run the app" then just tell me please if that's the case. This forum nver lets me down so im counting on you guys...

A:DxDiag Version Compatibility Issue, Which version should i download?

Welcome to Seven Forums mclarren. That dll is from DirectX 9 that dll should reside in both System32 and SysWOW64. The correct download if needed would be

Download DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer from Official Microsoft Download Center

I can zip up both dll's, but if the download corrects the issue, no need. Let us know. A Guy

Firefox is my favorite web browser, but ever since I read about Chrome doing a better job of internally sandboxing websites, I use it more and more.

There are multiple benefits to the internal isolation Chrome provides. For one thing, it makes it harder for malicious code in one page/tab to gain access to other pages in other tabs. Also, a looping script in one tab, does not lock out the entire browser. And, crashes in plug-ins are dealt with cleanly and don't crash the entire browser, something Firefox just started to implement.

As with all Windows software, my preference is for the portable edition, available at portableapps.com, because, as a rule, I much prefer portable software.

However, Chrome is the worst behaved portable application I've ever used. The biggest issue is that it doesn't self-update, a problem that is not new with version 6 (two other problems, confined to the portable edition, are described below). Update: According to the reader comment below from John T. Haller of PortapleApps.com, "Chrome's updater is not a part of Chrome itself, but rather an OS-level piece (unlike Firefox's) and it's closed source..."
The failure to self-update prompted a recent posting on this blog when a portable edition of Chrome continued to use an older version of Flash after a new version was installed.

A:Chrome version 6 annoyances

I run a portable Chrome from here: Cashi's Blog. It's a german version (but if you delete all language.dlls except for the english one, it falls back to english). It comes with its own updater (which essentially is a compiled AutoIT script) and lets you update from
Release Channel, Beta Channel, Dev Channel or from Chromium. Since it updates from the official sources, I trust that it"s identical to the Install version of chrome (at least in terms of plugins)
I used this one since version 4.xx because the data mining issues had been removed.
I'm not 100% sure if I installed that manually or if it came with this Flash version...about: plugins tells me

Flash (2 files) - Version:
Shockwave Flash 10.1 r82

which is supposedly the newest version.

If anyone would like to give it a try and has any problem downloading it, just drop me a line and I'll upload it to any OCH (One Click Hoster

Edit: I'm an idiot of course you can change the language under option/Under the hood/web content.

So far, i am LOVING windows 8 and my new inspiron 15z, super fast and super powerful.

One thing that has been bothering me though is that i really like to play windowed video games on the desktop (ex. minecraft) while listening to Pandora on chrome (my favorite browser). The only problem is that when i start playing the music on chrome and i go back to desktop, the music stops playing because chrome is a windows 8 app and it can't be used while you're in desktop .

Does anyone know a way i could get a desktop version of chrome or if there is any other FAST and DECENT browser that will run in desktop?



A:Desktop version of Chrome?

I just went to the Chrome site, using iExplorer from the desktop, downloaded/installed Chrome on the desktop as usual. It works just as any other Chrome install I've ever done. How did you install Chrome? All fast and decent browsers will run on the desktop, including iExplorer.

Chrome OS Version 55 has been out for all Chrome OS devices, according to this link, since December 9, 2016.  My R11 is still on Version 54.0.2840.101 and will not update to Version 55, even using the manual update.  Our other Chrome OS devices (not Acer R11 machines) have all updated. Is there a known constraint keeping the R11 from updating to the latest version of Chrome OS, or is my particular unit one of the few (or the only) not updating? Thank you! Cheers,Jason

Because I was tired of FF constantly not responding I decided to try Google Chrome. It seems ok so far but there is one thing that really annoys me. When the search list comes up there is a small arrow to the left of the search box. If I hover even anywhere near that this large black drop down list appears which includes You Tube, +You, Facebook, search, images etc. In short all programs I have no interest in or can access elsewhere.

Can anyone tell me how to stop this darned box appearing? Or alternatively how to delete it altogether?
Thank you.

I see that in January 2016, if I don't have the latest version of IE (which in my case is IE11) installed on my Windows 7 64-bit machine, I won't receive any further IE updates. I have used Chrome as my browser for years now but I do faithfully install the IE updates as apparently even if you don't use IE, it has deep roots into the operating system. Anyway - my question is this.....should I update to IE11? I think my current version is IE8. Or should I attempt to block IE on my system? I gather it's pretty much impossible to totally remove it.
Any help would be most appreciated!

A:Using Chrome-Do I need to Update Internet Explorer version?

Yes continue to update IE even if you do not use it, it has security updates that if not updated could cause your computer to be at risk.

source: Google Launches Enterprise Version of Chrome OS

Google launched today an improved version of the Chrome OS specifically built for deployment in large-scale enterprises.

Nicknamed Chrome Enterprise, this Chrome OS version will be available for $50 per device per year and includes the following new features.

Of all, the most important feature is the support for Microsoft Active Directory. By adding AD support, Google has removed the main impediment for businesses switching to Chrome OS, which was the ability to run Chrome OS and Windows on the same managed network.

With AD support, users will be able to use their regular work credentials to log into Chrome OS devices, without the overhead of using separate credentials or sysadmins managing different networks.Click to expand...

Chrome OS conquering one industry sector at a time
Chrome OS and Chromebook devices have been very successful in the education sector where many schools and universities have chosen Chromebooks as at-home school-provided laptops, but also in retail where they've been used as in-store PCs.

The low price of owning a Chromebook has made Chrome OS an appealing solution in these two verticals, and will no doubt make it as appealing in the enterprise sector.

While Microsoft has been offering Windows for home users for decades, it is from enterprise products that the company has made most of its money, of which, Google now wants a piece as well.Click to expand...

Hello, I am was wondering if someone could help me determine if there is an infection with my computer. The most recent issue is that I am getting an "C:\WINDOWS\winstart.bat is offline - it is currently not available (42006)" error on two recent Quick Scans using avast! in the past two days. I've run SUPERAntiSpyware (SAS), MBAM, Spybot S&D, MB Anti-rootkit and have found no issues other than tracking cookies. In addition I had tried to install & run Kapersky's free one-time scanner but was unable to install twice due to "insufficient" permissions and once where the installation stopped during the download phase (some message about " server connection").  Note if I look for the winstart.bat file using Windows Explorer it doesn't show the file even with the option of seeing hidden files yet when I run show-hidden -f it shows the file as being hidden in that location (I.e. C:\Windows\winstart.bat). Note that the only virus issues I have had over the past months have been when ComboFix was compromised with Sality: I believe I isolated that issue as AVG, SAS, SpyBot and CCleaner were able to eradicate most (??) of the issues.
In addition, in the past I have had issues with Chrome which were unusual. The first occurrence was during August last year where the Facebook title of a "Most Visited" tile was a name of person I had not visited recently. If I understand the mechanics properly there is a local name of a tile associated with a screens... Read more

I had (have?) a rogue search engine on my system highly problematic to remove, so was advised elsewhere to remove Chrome with Revo, after which I used CCleaner. By both processes I thought Chrome would be no more.

I reinstalled Chrome, downloading from Google not a third party. Installation succeeded but Chrome is unusable. I attempt to sign in, I am directed to https://accounts.google.com/ServiceL...l%3Fsource%3D1
but after a while "Web page not available" appears. Attempts to link to other web sites result in similar failure.

I have looked in the Google product forums, where of late very like questions have been asked, and have received scant or no replies. Therefore my questions are:

have I done enough to completely, utterly remove the old version, and if not what more should I do:
if my un-installation was sufficient, why I the reinstalled application failing to run?

Please, what can I do to make it run? Ideas, please, friends!

I've been using Flash Player in the Metro version of Chrome for quite a while now, and it's been fairly useful since the the Metro version of IE is oddly crippled. I like the Metro interface, but not the way web browsers have been crippled to use NO plugins.

Just today, Chrome started giving me a pop-up message saying that I can't use Flash Player unless I run in legacy/desktop mode.

Is this just my version of Chrome messing up in some way, or was this change actually made? I really don't understand why on earth they would cripple the Windows 8/Metro mode all of a sudden. What's going on?

Recovering tabs is not the same as recovering the history. Recovering tabs is in an event when Chrome crashes and you restart Chrome.

I have an MSI gaming laptop (Model: GX720). It came with Win7 32bit and I decided to install the Win7 64bit version. My system is capable of running the 64bit version of Windows 7 (According to Performance Information and Tools and Windows 7 upgrade advisor). I tried installing Win7 64bit and when it finishes it hangs on "Starting Windows logo", I noticed that the HDD's flash light stops flashing, I left it there for about 10 minutes and nothing. I also tried "safe mode" and I noticed it hangs on "CLASSPNP.SYS".

I have installed 32bit from the same DVD and it installs successfully. Only the 64bit version seems to fail, but, only on my laptop because on my mom's, my brother's, and my girlfriend's laptop -64bit and 32bit works perfectly with the same DVD I'm using to install my 64bit version. My system's specs are:

A:Win 7 64bit version issue

Googling "CLASSPNP.SYS" and windows 7 finds lots of links about BSoD's and failed boots. Sadly, there don't seem to be any solid fixes, but there are some suggestions. Make sure your BIOS settings are set to "Default" is one of them.

Also, I had this issue when I tried to put 8 Gig of ram in my VAIO SR290 notebook. Win 7 x64 wouldn't boot up, and I couldn't successfully re-install it. x64 Ubuntu worked fine with 8 Gigs and Win 7 32 bit worked fine with 8 Gigs installed.

I took out 2 Gigs and all was well. Win 7 x64 worked fine with 6 Gig. You could try removing some ram and see what happens.

Dear Team member,
First I have a windows 7 OS - 64 bit (not Pro nor Ultimate).
I have installed bitlocker on a Seagate Expansion portable drive on my old laptop with an XP or older OS (now scrap) and I have set a password.
I have the password but I want to remove completely.
I tried several Seagate softwares and searched for Bitlocker programs that could delete the password but without any result.
Would you kindly assist me in deleting the password that locks the access (not encryption) to my external HD.
Thank you,

We have 5 HP all in one Desktops all purchased about 8 months ago, the desktop I use is causing problems with networking, all the desktops run on the same network, my desktop is unable to see networks via the file explorer in the "This PC" Section but if I us the "quick access" section I can see previously used folders and back track that way, the internet works fine and can store data on the NAS system on the network via the folders I back tracked on, all the other computers inc mine have permissions set, they all worked fine until about a month ago and some of the files I had backed up started showing a 2004 date so I did a system restore and the computer (mine) shut down and would not restart, I eventually did a fresh re - install but still not working properly as I could not connect to a invoicing system that had worked fine since they were new, are there any setting I could look for? I have had a friend who works on computers but he is unable to come up with any answers, I have contacted HP and they said if its a network issue they cant help, I am beginning to wish I had stayed with Win 7, never had any issues but since we fitted Win 10 its very frustrating if there is a problem it takes longer than normal to sort.
I have done another re - install to no avail, anyone had similar issues?

A:Network issue on Win 10 Home version

If you can connect to others on the network through Quick Access, but just can't see their PCs in File Explorer, then your networking is working OK, but you may have Network Discovery turned off. Check in Control Panel - Network and Sharing Centre - Advanced sharing settings...

Chrome is regularly having problems opening pages, only for it to work fine with a simple refresh.

It's not a major issue, but I feel I shouldn't have to be doing it every other page I try to view.

Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing it? No other browser has this issue.

Hello PedrONorthmaN,

What you can possibly do is the following,

Delete cache and other browsing data - Google Chrome Help

and also disable how add-ons you may have installed in google chrome.

I recently wiped all of my three hard drives clean, including my OS harddrive, by formatting them. I did this through the Windows Vista Home Premium Upgrade disk and then I proceeded to do a clean installation of Windows Vista with the disk. With my current OS disk, the only option I have is to do a clean install because I'm not upgrading my OS from a previous OS. The problem I am having is that I cannot activate my Windows copy, which I have 29 days to do, because of the fact that the Vista OS disk I have is ONLY for UPGRADES. I don't have any Windows XP copy to install so there is no way I can upgrade back to Vista. To summarize this, I need some way to downgrade my OS so I can then upgrade to Vista through the Upgrade disk, which is currently my ONLY OS disk. If anyone has any suggestions or solutions, they would be greatly appreciated.

A:Windows Vista Upgrade Version Issue

Joe, you're out of luck! You need to re-install Windows XP and then run your Windows Vista upgrade. If you still have a product key for Windows XP, you're OK, an independent computer will loan or give a copy of that version of Windows XP. It's illegal for them to give you a copy with purchasing a product key but they can without a product key.

BTW, why are you upgrading to Vista? I'd advise against it unless you actually need Vista for something. I also don't like Windows upgrade installations. Too much hassle when something goes wrong.

Hello,I am in the process of starting to tackle killing a virtumonde virus on my computer and am making a recovery console per the instructions on the http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix page. It directed me to the http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-install-the-windows-xp-recovery-console/ page which has instructions on making a recovery console from the XP Installation CD. When I run the D:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons command from the run window, I get a message that setup could not continue because the version of Windows on my computer is newer than the version on the CD. This is the CD I used to install the OS, so other than upgrading to ServicePack 3, I don't know why this would be. Suggestions?Thanks so much in advance for the help!

Hi Everyone,
I've got a PC that is showing a strange search bar in Chrome, and has some random page popups while browsing in chrome. I've run RKill and AWS found a few things, but none of them seem to have fixed the issue. At first I thought it might be the play-bar.net malware, but it doesn't seem to match up with what that normally looks like. I'm curious if anyone knows what it might be, or what my best course of action to resolve the issue is. There isn't anything abnormal in the chrome extensions, none of the chrome settings seem to be off, and I don't see anything is remove programs that seems too out of place. 
Thanks for any assistance!

A:Strange Chrome issue

wiseproducts has a free Wise PlugIn Manager that I have used successfully to remove unwanted plugins, extensions, etc. that have caused what you've described.  Also, toolbarcleaner is only safe utility that actually works safely.  Try to hunt down and get Visicom's original last version ToolbarCleaner -- install it via custom or advanced install.  I think oldversion.com or oldapps.com may have it.  Avoid softonic.
BrowserCleaner -- one must do the "decline,decline,decline" install.  I'm not going to recommend BrowserCleaner -- it's too easy for it to delete things you do not want deleted.
