Hi,

First try https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/126299

Second, Open registry editor by typing regedit in run command

2. Now navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE \Google\Update\Clients\ on left pane, right click on key {430FD4D0-B729-4F61-AA34-91526481799D}’ and select Delete button.
Update: on 64-bit Windows, registry key you need to delete is
3. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Google\Update. right click on key {430FD4D0-B729-4F61-AA34-91526481799D}’ and select Delete button.

I was trying to install Chrome 64 bit which would not open (installation package) when I searched and found this answer. I have an issue with Chrome Stable just stopped working on my computer. It won't open, it just crashes. I tried every "fix" out there. I did install Chrome in Canary which worked but I wanted to find out why Chrome just crashed. Nothing I did worked, system restore, etc etc etc. I downloaded the Chrome 64 bit and couldn't install that either. BUT IN USING THIS FIX....NOW MY CHROME STABLE IS WORKING AGAIN. I am so excited. Been working on this for days. Genius!!! Thanks so much!!!! Hope this helps all the others out there with this issue!
Oh one addition, in the instructions you have: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Google\Update
I had to go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Google\Update\Clients
I am running Windows 8.1 64 bit.
Thanks again!
