Problem with installing Chrome

Hi,
I had problems with Google chrome so I tried to istall a new version.
It didn't solve the problem so I tried to uninstall the previous version, but my computer crashed in the process.
Now when I try to install a new version I get the following message:
Google Update installation failed with error 0x80040154.

I looked at it before I sent the question.
There are two problems with the accepted solution their.
1. The link to download the chromium
http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-xp/4274/chrome-win32.zip
is broken.
2. This is not Chrome.
The reaso why I need chrome is to test that my site works well on Chrome, and another browser will not help in that aspect.

try to deinstall all google software from your pc (also google update) then delete the google folder in "C:\Users\your_user\AppData\Local" (backup your userdata).
then try  to intstall chrome again.

It's a risky manuever, but I'd try searching through the registry for any references to chrome and delete them (run regedit, select edit > find, then type in "chrome").

Are you running any Anti Virus in the back ground?
Try to stop running the anti virus while you are installing the gchrome.

There were spyware doctor and Microsoft virus protection.
I uninstalled spyware doctor
I don't know how to disable Microsoft.
I checked, the problem still happens.
