so i'm totally loving chrome, esp after i found a grey skin. but
murphy's law kicked in. here's what i posted on google chrome help:


i seem to have a different problem than everyone else.

i had chrome running perfectly since it came out, and recently installed a skin, which was also working perfectly. yesterday i noticed that the skin reverted back to the original oneand then i saw that a new version of chrome had downloaded so i redid the skin on this new version and that's when it stopped working. i should also mention that around the same time i ran googleupdater to install realplayer and norton security scan, both which come bundled
with the google pack, and both of which i have since uninstalled.

i tried to revert the skin from a saved dll, and even tried to go back to the previous downloaded version with no luck. i tried to reinstall anew and had the same problems everyone else had, chromesetup.exe would run, download chrome, start installing and then just disappear.

i would run chrome.exe and nothing would happen at all, not even the flash of it that some others got. i also ended up deleting the google chrome folder thinking this might help, so i no longer have any files associated with chrome which i can check the properties of, and the chromesetup creates no new files, no new shortcuts in the start menu.

i don't have citivan.exe running and i killed ctfmon.exe and still does not work. i even tried nathan's suggestions but both those boxes were unchecked.

i'm runing xp pro, sp3.

any other suggestions would be appreciated!

one last thing, for those who still cant install it and really miss it, i am using chromium to write this, and it works exactly the same. (even the skins work)
