After Chrome uninstall Web page icons gone

I installed Google Chrome, and decided it wasn't worth the hassle when there is a superior browser like Firefox, and changed my default program back to Firefox. However, the Google Chrome Pokemon ball icons wouldn't go away, and still showed as the default icon for web files although the files opened in Firefox. I uninstalled Google Chrome and set the Program Access and Defaults to Firefox, rebooted, and instead of Firefox icons I now have the old ''DOS System'' Icon. I have tried to change my defaults to both IE and Firefox and no change.

I am now unable to open links from my Mail client. I ran a registry cleaner (ccleaner) and found that Google Chrome left behind several unsavory items, but deleting those keys did not restore my icons.

I am extremely disappointed in this program, and think that the folks at Google need to pull it together before pushing out an operating system. It's left such a bad taste in my mouth I am reluctant to even give them a chance.

I fully agree and sympathize with you.

I faced a similar problem and here is the solution for it.

First uninstall Google Chrome (From what you have written; you have already uninstalled it).

Go to "Set Default Programs" (Control Panel>Default Programs>Set Default Programs)

Select Internet Explorer and click Set this program as default

Select Microsoft Office Outlook and click Set this program as default

Run Registry Editor (regedit.exe) and browse to location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Ext and change the value data of all DWORD entries from 1 to 0.

Launch Internet Explorer first; launch your Mail client (hopefully Microsoft Officer Outlook).

Check if all is well and you are now able to open links from within your Mail client.

If all is well now, you may change your Default Program settings to Firefox.

P.S. Just remember to say thanks :) and you can always change the Firefox icons, you do know how?

Web page performance is a measure of the response load time of a web page. The slower a page loads, the higher the page's visitor bounce rate will be. There are quite a few free tools available on the market designed to conduct diagnostic performance tests on web pages. These tests analyze a select page, based a set of rules that are proven to speed the load time. You can use a web-based performance analyzing tool. Or you can install tool add-ons to your Firefox web browser.

Open your computer's web browser and go to GTmetrix.com or http://www.pagespeed.googlelabs.com/ Enter the complete URL of the page you would like to measure in the provided field. Press "Enter" to get the results of your performance test. b> Using Page Speed Firefox Add-On b> Launch the Firefox web browser. Download and install the Page Speed add-on from the Google website. Download and install the Firebug add-on from the GetFireBug website. Enter the URL of the web page you would like to measure in the Firefox address bar. Click the Firebug icon located in the top right-side of the Firefox window, to open the Firebug window. Click the "Page Speed" button in the Firebug status bar. Click "Analyze Performance" to get the results of your performance test. b> Using YSlow Firefox Add-On b> Launch the Firefox web browser. Download and install the YSlow add-on from the Yahoo website. Download and install the Firebug add-on from the GetFireBug website. Enter the URL of the web page in the Firefox address bar. Click the Firebug icon located in the top right-side of the Firefox window, to open the Firebug window. Click the "YSlow" button in the Firebug status bar. Click "Run Test" to get the results of your performance test. Hope this helps.

Cant get on the internet when i click on google chrome icon I get "web page not avaiable"


Try using other browsers like IE or Mozilla Firefox and check if you can browse the Internet. If yes, uninstall and reinstall Google Chrome. If you can't access Internet via IE and Mozilla Firefox as well, chances are you don't have Internet connection. Contact your ISP if that's the case.

Browser keeps loading icon and rarely opens page


Hey There Buddy!
I KNOW THIS IS QUITE A LATE REPLY AND YOU MIGHT NOT EVEN WANT IT AT THIS POINT BUT, I THOUGH WHAT IF YOU STILL DID NEED IT, SO I JUST WENT AHEAD! NO HARM DONE IS THERE?! :)
And also, I'm judging by the picture that you are using Google Chrome. Chrome is in my opinion VERY fast and reliable even compared to Firefox. I don't see how this could be a Chrome problem, maybe its some sort of compatibility problem. You remember installing any software recently, or to be more specific, any dodgy ones or any web-related software. If that is the case then uninstall the software and restart Windows to see if the problem is solved. Also you should see to it that Chrome is updated to its latest version. to do that - 1. Click on the button on Chrome with the icon of a spanner, it should say Customize and Control Google Chrome. 2. Then click on 'About Google Chrome'. 3. It should show whether the version is out-of -date or up-to-date there!
Also, since u said that you are afraid of losing your dear bookmarks, here's the link from Google Chrome Help itself telling how to 'Import and Export Bookmarks across ANY browser!.
