Cannot install Google Chrome in Windows 10

This is a Windows 10 (recently upgraded from W7), 64 bit.  When using Edge, I can access the download from Google for Chrome but after the boot strap download happens, it goes into an infinitesimal download sequence.   Since my experience indicates that this should be a download that takes less than 1 or 2 minutes, I stop the process.  I'm using a 100 mb line.  I've tried this several times and get the same issue.  Any ideas?  Are others seeing the same issue with trying to install Chrome with W10's Edge?

Running chrome 64 bit without issue on W10

Default install is 32 bit.

For 64 bit, go to https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/desktop/ then click on "Download Chrome for another platform" and select "Windows 8/7 64-bit".
Of course, you can only do this if you have installed W10 64 bit.
And I'm not saying that chrome 32 bit does not work on W10.  try this let me know how you go ??

I am beginning to think that the problem was a W10 update or lack thereof.  I installed all of the current W10 updates (there were several) and then tried Chrome again and it downloaded and installed OK.  Go figure.

Updating W10 seems to have fixed the problem.
