I could really use someone's help here. I've been searching for a while for a solution to my issue, but can't find very many resources about my specific problem.
My Google Chrome will not auto update on *any* of my PC's. Some background info...
I use Windows 10 Home 64-bit. Currently, my Chrome version is 51.0.2704.106 m (64-bit), as I have been manually updating.
I noticed this problem start several months ago. Prior to that time, Chrome would auto update. Not sure if any of the following have relevance to the issue, but here are some things I noticed:
- Around the same time the issue started, I moved from 32-bit Chrome to 64-bit Chrome.
- I noticed that my Chrome installations reside in the "Program Files (x86)" folder. However, I could have sworn Chrome usually installed itself in Appdata.
- I am able to manually update (by going to Help/About). Chrome just will not auto update.
- I have UAC turned on on all of the PC's with the issue, and when I manually update Chrome in Help/About, I am presented with a UAC dialogue box which I must click to get past before the update will occur.
When I go into Task Scheduler, it does list two items that look to be responsible for updating Chrome, and they show as being "on" and running every so often, but still no auto updating is occurring.
I've tried uninstalling Chrome and reinstalling, but the same issue is still occurring.
Any help someone could provide would be *very much* appreciated, as I have been able to find very little support elsewhere. Most auto updating problems I've come across in my search have to do with updates being disabled by the administrator (which impact manual updates as well), but that is not happening to me.
I did come across one web page that seemed to describe my problem (listed as a bug on chromium.org, but the issue was marked as "won't fix." Here is the link, if it helps:
