Error 4 on installing Google Chrome

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

Good evening friends!

I Simian, am looking for an expert’s opinion to resolve my Google Chrome issue. I was just installing Google Chrome on Windows Vista when it gave the same error as in the image below.

I tried a different version of Chrome after this error, but that one also gave me the same error in response.

The installer encountered error 4.

When I clicked the link “help me fix this”,  it starts a troubleshooting setup and asks a few questions.  I gave the right answers but at the end it says your issue cannot be resolved.  Please contact the administrator for further query.

If you know  how this installation error could be solved, then please tell me.  

If you know where to contact the Chrome Admin, then let me know so I can discuss this error 4 issue.

Error 4 on installing Google Chrome


Loss of connection or a virus during download is present. It may seem to be successful download but there is an error caused by the loss of connection or virus.  You may do the following:

1. Restart your computer.
2. Go to this directory "Documents and Settings<your username>Local SettingsApplication DataGoogleChromeApplication" and Remove this directory.
3. Restart your computer.
4. Install Google Chrome.
5. If error comes out again, Do step 2 and 3 again.
6. Scan your computer with your Updated Antivirus. Due to virus, some connections are blocked by the virus. Make sure you fully scan your computer.
7. Restart your computer.
8. Install Google Chrome.
9. Now you can use Google Chrome without an error.
