Windows 7: Get rid of the install Google chrome box

17 Feb 2012   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I use IE9 all the time, and I only see the advertisement twice. The first time I load Google it shows, then I log in to my Google account, go back to the home page, and X it one more time. I never see it again.

Errrr... I actually fixed this on my workstation at the office, but I'll have to go back through my notes. I'll be up there tomorrow so I'll post whatever I came up with. It was pretty annoying for me as well.

Hell, I know what I did. I saved the search page on another computer, copied it to a flash drive, then saved it on the PC with the annoying box problem, then opened it by double clicking.

Select "Use Current Page" and apply. It's not exactly a fix, but it gets rid of the box.

I set IE9 to Compatibility View. The X is now active, so I was able to close the install google chrome message.

Get Rid of the "install Google Chrome" message

After trying all of the suggestions that I could understand concerning this popup I final hit on an idea:I went to the desktop icon for internet explorer,which in my case,is Google and changed the name to Home Page.Poof........Chrome message is gone and hasn't shown it's face again.Don't really understand but to get rid of that irritation I'll wait to hear from someone smarter than me to explain it.

This doesn't happen with Firefox since I installed adblock plus add-on. The question is there anyway to block this annoying box from showing up every time I open IE9?


get into TOOLS (Menu Bar),
then into ADVANCED,
then scroll down to SECURITY,
look for the SECURITY subset "Enable DOM Storage"
check it,
click apply.

Hope it works.
