I am getting lost. Are you still there? I would like to find out if I can put Chrome back on. BilleHoutz

Did who take Chrome off? Personally, I won't allow that giant spyware program anywhere near my computers. Did you take your computer to have it worked on? Maybe they though they were doing you a favor? If you didn't have it worked on, Chrome is probably still there. Did you look for it? If there's no shortcut on the desktop, try Start > All Programs. If it's not listed, you can always reinstall it.

✔ Best Answer
"Did they take chrome off"
If by "they" you mean Chrome themselves well its unlikely but possible that they had a problem. In which case if you wait a while it should come back on.

"My machine went down yesterday"
Do you mean it crashed or something?
Can we assume it is now working again (apart from Chrome)?

My entire machine crashed yesterday. They said they would check it and it MIGHT come back on. This morning it was back on without Chrome. I got no message from them and wondered if I should reinstall it or not. I am attempting to set up a business selling jewelery,etc. It WAS going well! I do not understand that much about computers. Just enough to get me into trouble. Thanks for your answer. I think I'm still in trouble! billehoutz1@gmail.com

"They said they would check it" "I got no message from them".
Who are THEY and THEM - this background could be important to us?

Please edit out your email address or you will get junk email forever.
It should never be put on the Internet as open text and we work on the
forum anyhow.

I have an older computer that used to be used in the school system. It pretty much takes care of my not knowing what I'm doing. It tells me what to change when I need new programs (updating) I just recently changed from the Internet to Mozilla Firefox and then I got a Google Nexus 7 and I attempted to change it over. It was doing great for a while. However, my machine keeps telling me that I do not have enough power and I push a button and it fixes it for a while. I hope you will understand what I just said. If not send me an gmail please and maybe we can fix my problem. I may just leave chrome off if my computer found a virus connected to it. billehoutz1@gmail.com

"I hope you will understand what I just said"
Nope, practically nothing I'm afraid.

Keep watching - maybe someone else will be better at interpreting this one.

As I've already said - we don't use email for giving advice and if you don't edit your address out the spammers will find it and send you heaps of junk mail. It's up to you but years ago I did the same and ended up with 120 junk mails per day.

Sorry, but I just don't understand this concept of having a computer that somehow fixes things and appears to be telling you what to do. As per my edit to #7, see if someone else comes along who can understand what you are describing.

OK, let's have one more go at unravelling this.

You have an XP computer which crashed. When it came back on again Chrome was missing. The THEY and THEM referred to messages that came up on the computer. In response #2 you were given a link and information to get Chrome back, if you want to.

Somewhere along the line it seems you installed Firefox on the computer too. From your posts I don't know whether this was before or after Chrome failed. Whatever, unless your computer crashes again it seems that the problem has resolved itself because you are now able to use Firefox instead (if you wish).

Is that right so far?

You are now adding that you have a Google Nexus 7 and that you "attempted to change it over". Do you mean you put Firefox on that too, or what? I assume that the power issue was also about the Nexus. It would be best to find a Nexas forum to discuss your issues with that.

Just for information, the internet is what your server provides. "Internet Explorer", "Chrome" and "Firefox" are all browsers which you use for access (surfing the web).

Is there still some computer problem that we can help with on here?

I think I will just let things be. You were pretty close on what you thought. I changed to Mozilla Firefox . I had it for a while. I got a Google Nexus 7 for Christmas. I liked everything on it but the voice was not loud enough to hear at all, so I changed my computer to iGoogle on Google.com When I added Chrome it lasted for about a week. Chrome is now where Windows XL was. Good! It can stay there. It took a while to find it. I do not know how to edit my address out of spammers view. For all I do not understand I would say I get pretty lucky. Thanks so much. If I get lucky again you will write me one more letter. Ha! Ha! Bille

OK, I hope the computer behaves from now on and you resolve your Nexus issues.

If you look at your posts on here at the bottom left of each one it should say "Edit This Message" (in blue). If you click that you should get a screen where you can edit things then Submit Changes. Your #4 & #6 both need the email address removing.

Sorry if I appear to nag about this but I would hate anyone to have the 120 per day experience I had. The spammers search engines harvest addresses then sell them on to all their buddies. You start getting all sorts of weird stuff and scams. In the end I had to change my email address. This was years ago and it's been quiet ever since. Keep your email address off the internet unless disguised or entered in some place where it can't be seen by the whole world. The golden rule is "if Google can find it so can everyone else".

Good luck.
