I just had a bit of an issue in the last 12 hours or so in that suddenly Chrome stopped working.
I suddenly got presented with a message when trying to access it.... (something like)...."You cannot access this function because it has been moved or deleted".
Anyway, fear not...this story has a happy ending.....
So, I immediately thought my browser had crashed and that I would have lost all my bookmarked pages and settings etc. I was not a happy bunny!
My next step was to use Explorer to reinstall Chrome. For some reason, I needed to perform this task twice as it wouldn't download the first time of trying. At this stage I was feeling somewhat flustered, to say the least! lol
After reinstalling the second time of trying, I was massively relieved to see that all my bookmarks, settings, and the 2 extensions that I use were completely intact. (These extensions are Bitdefender Qscan and Adblock).
Mightily relieved, I then shut down and went straight to bed as it was late.
Then, this morning, to my great delight, Chrome seems to be responding faster than ever! And I can see something has changed because the swirling blue circle (that indicates a new page is being loaded) looks different, leaving me in no doubt that a newer version of Chrome was installed on my machine after this little 'mis-hap'.
Sorry to go all around the houses with my description of what went on here. Obviously I am delighted at the outcome.
But my question is, as well as doing the obvious Windows and Samsung updates in order to keep my pc running well, do we need to manually update browsers every so often by doing manual re-installs? Because if there is such a thing as an AUTO-reinstall/update setting for Chrome, my machine certainly doesn't seem to be set up to do it.
(level - relative novice)
