scroogled again - I can't get chrome back on my re-imaged Toshiba laptop.
Sorry you were scroogled. The problem is that the google update uses the Visual Studio Software Deployment. When you delete or remove chrome from your newly imaged Laptop you can't get it back. I saw google update installation failed with error 0x8004071b.
I tried everything.
I cleaned the software registry, I wiped out the instances of google in appdata under the users. I wiped out all google files. I even loaded a older version of google. It appears google is trying to update to a dead update server.
The fix was to install adobe flash that asked to install google chrome and google chrome toolbar. It installed and the problem was solved on my Mom's Toshiba.
