Question about Google Chrome

3 Answers

Uninstalled google chrome and now yahoo messenger icons dont work

I didn't like google chrome -- uninstalled it -- in vista --> "Computer" --> "Add/Remove" --> Select "Google Chrome" icon and click Uninstall.

Program uninstalls, but when i click on the "envelope" icon on my Yahoo Messenger, the icon is not executable. I get an error message: http://login.yahoo.com/config/reset_cookies_token?.token=Q40YRL7rwq8taRj19fBIUOG8NkFI...

"Application not found"

The only option is to close out the error box.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Or how to uninstall Google Chrome w/o it affecting other things? G-Chrome was too aggressive and made itself the default window/browser for icons such as the "mail" envelope in the yahoo messenger menu.

    Thanks to srinivasjr for fixing the problems associated with uninstalling Google Chrome and it's effects on Yahoo Messenger and Default links. You have fixed what Google failed to respond to and what Yahoo wouldn't. I can't thank you enough.

    I want to get 3 ask toolbars off of my google chrome browser window

  • Anonymous Mar 24, 2014

    I would like a current solution: When a click for a new blank tab, I'd like the large Google Search engine (NOT google chrome, please!) to be displayed; you know, the page where above the search typing area there's, daily, a spread of new art, resembling a huge icon? Please? Thank you!

1) For XP, just go to Control Panel> Add or Remove Programs

2) then select Set Program Access and Defaults at the left part of the Add or Remove programs screen

3) Choose Custom configuration then choose ur Default Web Browser

and voila!... i had the same problem after uninstalling Google Chrome and I found this webpage (good thing I did!). but since I am using XP, I couldn't relate to the "Set Associations" thingy.. I searched Control Panel and got this solution.

I hope this helps.

Thanks to srinivasjr for the idea :D

SOURCE: i didn't like google chrome

I've never used Google Chrome but believe if you uninstall Yahoo Messenger. Then re-download and reinstall it(Yahoo Messenger) that it should remedy your problem since Google Chrome is now removed.

Messenger is loaded but i have no icon to click on.


You need the following OS to support Messenger 10 beta
Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/XP64/Vista64
If that is not a problem read on.

The problem may be due to a mal-function of the uninstall software.
Close all programs when uninstalling / downloading and uploading.

Uninstall from the C drive

Start > Computer >> Local drive (C) >> Program Files >> Yahoo >> Messenger >> UNWISE

Unwise is the command to start the uninstall process - click 'Auto' if prompted
The Yahoo uninstall software can be problematic you may have old software remaining on the C drive
If you have Vista the whole Messenger folder should have been removed during the uninstall.
Check
- The Messenger folder should have been deleted and not seen. If the Messenger folder is still visible - delete it.

If you have a pre-Vista OS, the Messenger folder remains, and inside, only one sub-folder should be seen. This is the 'Profile' folder and contains all the message history. All other software should have been deleted.

Manually delete any other folders and files before moving on

Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times.

Re-start your computer and download Yahoo Messenger from here.

Yahoo messanger installation


Problem:
"Yahoo messenger is unable to download files needed for installation. Please check firewall settings and retry installation"

Solution:

Hi,

I tried to solve this. I went through alot of forums. I uninstalled Yahoo messenger and tried installing new one. I downloaded and pressed "Run as an administrator" when i got this response

"Yahoo messenger is unable to download files needed for installation Please check firewall settings and retry installation."

I did the following:
Turned of Windows Firewall( Search )
Uninstalled Yahoo messenger
Downloaded New One
Used CCLEANER to clean the computer. Download CCLEANER from www.filehippo.com

Then I checked INTERNET EXPLORER:

Tools->Internet Options->Connections->LAN Settings -> Click on Automatically Detect Settings (Unclick everything else except this option) ->Apply -Ok

Check if www.yahoo.com opens in Internet Explorer.

Now Install Yahoo Messenger.
It should work.

Thanks
