    Google Problem


    Figure this... with my chrome browser I can't get to the Google page. Google

    This webpage is not available

    Reload
    Then I open IE or FF and can go right to the page. Problem being I like Chrome better and prefer it for my default browser. Is there a fix for this?

    Try clearing the browser data of chrome...... under settings, advanced, clear browser data.

    It can't be full... I just downloaded it yesterday. But I will do it. Nope... didn't solve the problem but...
    I clicked on the little square next to the URL and it said "my connection was not encrypted".... could that be the problem.

    What plugins do you have if any?

    You could uninstall and then reinstall chrome....sometimes that helps.

    Use Bing. The page loads every time.

    No plugins yet. I just downloaded it Saturday morning. I'll try uninstall and reinstall. Thanks.

    As for Bing... I refuse to use it because it because I can't tell you how many times I found it installed on my computer without my knowledge. I don't deal with companies that sneak in like that. Once it took me hours to remove it.

    OK...now how do you uninstall something on Windows 8?

    Lower left hot corner > right click for menu > Control panel > Programs and features.

    Or WinKey/X

    Or WinKey > Start Screen > Type "programs". I think it will come up that way.

    Bing is an MS product.

    Thanks... got it.

    Also when my computer goes to sleep... and when I wake it up there is a faded out icon on the desktop that says:
    desktop.ini

    How do I get rid of it? I tried dragging it to the trash, but the next time it's there again.

    That is a system .ini file. Either set folder options not to show system files (all files) or hide desktop icons.

    How do you set folder options?

    I redownloaded Google and still can't connect to Google.
