After uninstalling Google Chrome it seems outlook has decided to have a complex about it, when clicking a link in an email I get the following message:
It turns out, it’s a pretty common error after uninstalling chrome http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Chrome/thread?tid=4c894d24ab6fac2d&hl=en
The fix is relatively easy:
1. Click Start, click Run, type Regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
2. Locate the following subkey: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.html
3. On the File menu, click Export.
4. In the Export Registry File dialog box, enter HKCU_Classes_HTML_Backup.reg and click Save.
Note: This will create a backup of this registry key in the My Documents folder by default.
5. Right click the (Default) value for the .html key and select Modify…
6. Change the value from “ChromeHTML” to “htmlfile”
Its odd given the age of the problem that this isnt included in the chrome uninstall.
I like google to be honest, i like what google does and i like how they contribute positively to everything Web and free; So i come into the Chrome OS scene reading all the hype and all the headlines to say “Microsoft watch out” “Chrome OS will change the enterprise” so i sat there and went cool lets see if Google can pull it off. I went over to gdgt.com and got the VMWare Image. Let the games begin.
