    I uninstalled Google Chrome (via the Windows XP Control Panel) and now, whenever I click on a link in an email inside MS Outlook, I get a message that says "this operation has been cancelled due to restrictions on effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator."

    How do I fix this problem? I didn't have the benefit of your instructions on how to disable Chrome when I did it.

    • @JJB: You can try making IE your default browser. For that, go to IE -> Tools -> Internet Options -> Programs. You will see button of "Make Default" at the bottom. That should do it.

    My Chrome extension crashes everytime I open it, it’ll have an error message saying Google Voice for Chrome crashed. The page also wouldn’t open correctly due to the extension crash. I tried opening the extensions page to uninstall the extension, but even that page doesn’t open correctly. I can’t use Chrome now. Is there a way to uninstall extensions without going to the webpage of extensions?

    I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling, that didn’t work either – it somehow “remembered” that I had the extensions.

    Please help.


    • @Paul: I am not sure what might be going on, but you might try to uninstall Google Chrome itself, and then reinstall it.
