Google Chrome not allowing installing of extensions

Hi all,

I am trying to install an extension for my friend but when I click "Add" it says "checking" but does not move on from this so I can't add it. I've tried numerous extensions and get the same message.

I've also tried googling this issue and as others had experienced something similar, I checked where the downloads folder was and this all appears to be correct.

Could anyone help me to solve this?

Thanks ,

Derek

Try opening the extensions window, and then dragging the extension into the window.

You will need to first download and save the extension to your computer.
