I have heard that it is near impossible to clear Chrome browsing history. What is the best solution? I am not against paying for a utility that will accomplish this task if it is something that takes many steps to perform manually.

Im currently testing the following Group Policy from the Chrome admx Template.
This policy should deactivate or activate the Website Isolation setting for Chrome. The Registry key is changed / applied but it has
no effect in the Chrome settings. I tried it in User and Computer Configuration and with restart.
Has anyone else tried to apply this setting and experience the same issue or has any idea what could be the problem?

Enable Site Isolation for every site

Data type:
    Boolean [Windows:REG_DWORD]
Windows registry location for Windows clients:
Windows registry location for Google Chrome OS clients:
Mac/Linux preference name:
Supported on:

        Google Chrome (Linux, Mac, Windows) since version 63
        Google Chrome OS (Google Chrome OS) since version 63

Supported features:
    Dynamic Policy Refresh: No, Per Profile: No

    NOTE: This policy is experimental and may break functionality! You might want to look at the IsolateOrigins policy setting to get the best of both worlds, isolation and limited impact for users, by using IsolateOrigins with a list of the sites you want to isolate. This setting, SitePerProcess, isolates all sites. If the policy is enabled, each site will run in its own process. If the policy is disabled, the pre-Site Isolation process management logic will take effect. …
Hi all :)

I have a weird problem with chrome on a users PC.

When they open a new tab the annoying "recent sites" thumbnails appears however they are NOT any sites the user has been to plus when I hover over one no X appears at the top right so it is not possible to clear/delete it.

What could be causing this weird behaviour?

I have completely removed and reinstalled chrome but get the same behaviour.

I have attached a screenshot of the problem.

A Yahoo user has reported that ever since the Yahoo website change around Christmas he has lost all of his contacts and notes.

I have verified that his contacts and notes are both empty.

What do we need to do to get his contacts and notes back within Yahoo? He reports that he has 10 years worth of data stored within the Yahoo contacts and notes and we can't afford to loose this data.
Yahoo recently changed their website layout and now several of my customers are unable to locate their Notes & Contacts within the new Yahoo.com website.

Where have these things gone or what is the process to locate them?
has anyone tried "speech recognition anywhere" from the chrome store?

we have an application which requires the default browser to be Google Chrome but we have links which are sent which need to be opened in IE because they are clickonce applications.

i can install extensions onto everyone google chrome to allow this to work but we are a large company and i don't fancy installing 3rd party extensions onto each PC as a solution when they could become redundant and stop working after a period of time.

regardless i am trying to get link 1 to go to IE and link 2 to go to Chrome regardless where on the system it is clicked, for example (desktop, within an email or on the application itself).

example a: https://website.live.com:5443/main/(ending will be different so this needs to be a wilcard) to go to Chrome
example b: https://website.live.com:5443/client/runtime/(ending will be different so this needs to be a wilcard) to go to IE

please advise how this can be achieved.
Hi All,

We are having hard time getting Google Chrome as default browser on all of our workstations. We started with setting GPO and with Google Chrome ADML and AMDX files and it is not working. We also tried to deploy registry files for .URL, .HTTP, .HTTPS, .HTML and .HTM and it is not working as well.

Our Domain controllers are Server 2016 and workstations are Windows 10.
I have this code
// show_summ_ls250.php
$fname = "summaries/" . $_SESSION['vid'] . "summary.pdf";
<!DOCTYPE html>

<title>Show LS250</title>
function go_ls250() {
	str = "https://www.lakoshvac.com/<? print $fname; ?>";
	window.location = "projectsn.php";	
<body onLoad="go_ls250()";>


Open in new window

For me, this code works as I expect in both Firefox & Chrome. Bit sure about ie, or whatever it's called

In both cases, it opens a new window & shows the pdf file in the window. The user can review, download, etc.

Fir my customer, it works in FireFox if popups are allowed. It does NOT work in chrome; he says it shows the pdf for an instant, then disappears.

I do not want to be dependent of browser settings on client computer.

How can I make this work as desired REGARDLESS of browser?
My Favorites for IE and Bookmarks for Chrome keep replicating/duplicating themselves to the tune of 24,000+. We are on Office 365. i've deleted them both in IE (on my laptop and on the site directly) and Chrome. but they keep coming back. I've even deleted the chrome bookmark file and started with a clean slate.

A user running Windows 7 64-bit Pro is unable to open any webpages within Google Chrome.

When Google Chrome launches or when he types in web page URL addresses we get messages that say "Your connection is not private."

If we click on the Advanced button and then click the "Continue to this webpage (not recommended)" button the webpage still won't open.

I have followed the instructions found in this URL (http://www.zerodollartips.com/your-connection-is-not-private-chrome/) and have Cleared browsing data under Privacy options & reset the Chrome browser settings (following the instructions listed below).

Additionally I have run the DISM and SFC commands and have run Malwarebytes and have removed Malware.

After rebooting we are now intermittently able to successfully connect to websites with google Chrome but still continue to get this error 7 out of 10 times and there are some websites that simply won't load at all.

What else can be done to fix this issue so Google Chrome can once again be used to surf the internet?

First of all, go to Settings > Show advanced settings > Clear browsing data under Privacy options.
If clearing browsing data doesn’t help then you can reset Chrome browser settings to the default browser settings too. To reset your Chrome browser settings:

Firstly, click on the Chrome menu > Settings > Show advanced settings > Reset settings > Reset button.

We have a Logitech Bluetooth keyboard/mouse and the Asus Chrome stick connected to the TV. These work great but now we need a webcam to complete the setup. We purchased the Logitech Brio 4k Pro webcam, but can not get it turn on. Is there a way to use the Brio with the TV or what is the best option.
When I use Google Chrome to open nextivaFax.com, there is a check box to keep me signed in.   I check that box and enter my username and password.   The next time I open the website, my username and password have disappeared.   How do I configure ti so I do not have the enter my username and password each time?   Previously, I did not have to do this.
as it seems that users are able even without being admin of their machine to instal chrome, I would like to find a way to unable them to install this by them self.

any idea?
I'm a PC guy, and just bought a MacBook Pro.  I'm not used to Safari yet.

When I download Chrome, and click google chrome.dmg in my Downloads, nothing happens.  What am I missing?  I'm trying to follow the directions on the Youtube video.  Something should start installing when I click google chrome.dmg
I have a quick question. Under Google Chrome cookie setting, when I turn off "allow sites to save and read cookie data", does it mean all sites are off?

The reason I asked is because when it is off, I can still turn on and off "block third party cookies". What does it mean?  (sorry)  thanks

When HTTP Header Content-Security-Policy is set to "Default-src 'self', ASP text box does not get hidden

Content-Security-Policy to Default-src 'self' on IIS
This is the piece of code which used to be "hidden" from user, but by setting Content-Security-Policy to Default-src 'self', it shows up on the UI on FireFox and Chrome. It hides correctly on IE.  

            <div style="position: relative; float: left;">
                <asp:TextBox ID="txtTop" runat="server" Width="0px" Height="0px" Style="background: #517ca6;
                    background-color: #517ca6; color: #517ca6;" BorderStyle="None"></asp:TextBox>

Any suggestion on how we can keep the control hidden, and be able to set Content-Security-Policy to Default-src 'self'?

Malwarebytes has quarantined the PUP spigot.generic google chrome on my husband's computer (and a few clients) on three separate occasions. One client got a pop up requesting to not turn off her computer and to call a phone number which seems to be related.
  • Why does PUP spigot.generic google chrome keep coming back - I have run MBAM (premium), SAS, Adwcleaner and CCleaner, I didn't go further since it appeared to be a simple PUP
  • How and why do people get popups on their desktop to contact a company to "fix" their computer

On MBAM's site a suggestion (https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/154762-pupoptionalspigota-chrome-preferences/) was to run ZOEK by Smeenk, I've never heard of it.

I appreciate your assistance! I have attached the most recent report from MBAM.
