  1. windows 10 blocks google chrome - is this worth having?

    Downloaded and installed 10 successfully, but when I try to open Chrome, I get a blank page with the spinning circle that says "loading". Tried to contact Microsoft customer support and was on hold for more than an hour.

    The only reason I am able to post here is that I un-installed it and I'm back to Windows 7.

    I primarily use the computer for internet access, word processing and e-mail. Is Windows 10 worth the trouble for someone like me?

  2. google chrome is blocked by microsoft

    It is not natively blocked by Microsoft Windows 10 - so - what did you do in order to block it and what did you utilize to do so and/or what makes you believe Windows 10 is blocking "Google Chrome" in any manner?

  3. Microsoft Family blocking Chrome

    That link doesn't work on Windows 10 Home and Microsoft Family is the biggest POS in the world. Created solely to block Google Chrome on Windows 10. What a sham!

    Why didn't you just uninstall/reinstall or perform another install of Chrome? The issue for what it's worth was with your Chrome install, not windows 10.

    Chrome is not blocked at all, and works fine (if you like 5 separate processes for each page you open, it's become a memory hog of late) on all my 10 PC's / laptops. I've imported into edge, and while not finished by a long shot, performs well, and I have Chrome as well.

  6. I appreciate those who took the time to make suggestions, but un-installing and re-installing is beyond my comfort level. I think my mistake was buying into the marketing and downloading 10 in the first place. Windows 7 works fine for me and by the time that's phased out (I've heard the date is in 2020) I'll be 70 and probably won't care.

    7 is an excellent OS, but my dear, if you undertook install of win 10 onto your machine by yourself then reverted, that level is steps above what is needed to simply uninstall and reinstall Chrome on the PC afterwards!

    If you want to stayy on 7, no worries, you have until next aug and can still upgrade for free.

    I would suggest removing chrome in 7 (control panel, programs and features) and then upgrade to 10.

    Then you would install Chrome again within 10 by going to:

    windows 10 blocks google chrome - is this worth having?

    I have reverted back to 8.1 as i was experiencing many small niggly problems,there is not enough change in Windows 10 to entice me back,and look how this forum has exploded with many,many issues since July 29th.I won`t be far behind you in 2020 and as long as i can surf the net and log into my dating sites along with Betfair/Betdaq/Smarkets and Matchbook *Thumbs ,i will remain a happy Windows 8.1 bunny until at least July 2016!

  9. Thanks for the vote of confidence and the suggestion to remove Chrome in 7. I may wait until one of my younger and more computer savvy family members is available for on-site support! While I think I'm okay with Windows 7 on the desktop, I was hoping to buy a new laptop and really don't want to stay with 8.1 on that machine. If I could get a laptop with Windows 7 I would be very happy.

    Might work for you, but not for me - at least not on all of my computers. I downloaded Windows 10 on 2 computers to test it before putting it on my main computers. Chrome works on one, but not on the other. I reinstalled, downloaded a new version...and it just spins. It wouldn't surprise me if Microsoft made it difficult to use Chrome. Why should I have to learn edge when I am perfectly happy with Chrome? If I can't get Chrome to work. then I won't be using Windows 10 on all of our computers. This is exactly why I decided to test it first.

    Maureen can now upgrade for free on that same computer for the life of that computer, since she did the upgrade once already.

  12. Now you see why I don't like CROME at all
    I have gone to Edge completely not even got IE11 on my laptop.
    Maureen if you are going to go for new laptop go for one with windows 10 on it.
    It is a good OS and Edge is getting better all the time.
    IE11 and CROME where the 2 causing me trouble even in Windows 8.1
    So when upgraded out with the old in with the new had no crashes and runs like silk

  13. windows 10 blocks google chrome - is this worth having?

    Still looking for a new laptop/tablet and imagine all of them will have 10 now, so I'll see how that works with Chrome before I think about trying it again on the desktop.

    The tip about being able to download for the life of my desktop wasn't something I knew and I'm glad to hear it.

  14. Most of the laptops still for sale now have windows 8.1 on them with a free upgrade being offered.
    The shops will want to get rid of them first, so you may still have to wait awhile for a complete windows 10 system to appear on the shelf.

    In time Edge will become better than CROME, to me I found CROME trying to take over too much, but that was me others may find it ok.
    To me Edge works and does what I want it to, and that was another reason I got rid of IE11 because it kept crashing and freezing up my laptop.

    For what it is worth, I haven't experienced any Chrome issues on Windows 10 on my own machine or the machines that I support at work.
