From the web....Updates are disabled by the administrator - Google Product Forums

 

Here are step by step instructions:

1. Save these instructions somewhere safe and close all instances of Chrome 
2. Press the Windows key + R, type regedit.exe and press Enter 
3. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\ 

4. Double-click on UpdateDefault or DefaultUpdate 
5. Change the data type 0 to 1 
6. Exit the registry editor and launch Chrome

Disclaimer: These instructions involve modifying your Windows registry. If you're uncomfortable or unfamiliar with editing your registry, you may want to consult a computer technician before you start. You may also want to consider backing up your registry before proceeding.

So....you did or did not attempt the registry fix....

That is a different error from the first reported.

You can always uninstall and reinstall. You can do that without removing your Chrome profile. Or use a different

browser...such as Firefox.

Uninstall Google Chrome - Chrome Help

Windows Vista/ Windows 7/ Windows 8

  1. Close all Chrome windows and tabs.
  2. Go to the Start menu > Control Panel. (Windows 8 users: Learn how to access the Control Panel)
  3. Click Programs and Features.
  4. Double-click Google Chrome.
  5. Click Uninstall from the confirmation dialog. If you want to delete your user profile information, like your browser preferences, bookmarks, and history, select the "Also delete your browsing data" checkbox.

Did the browser come packaged with other software on your computer? If so, your version of Google Chrome may be installed system-wide and you'll need to log in to a user account with administrative rights on your computer to uninstall the browser. Uninstalling a system-wide version of Google Chrome removes the browser for all user accounts on your computer.
