Hyper links won't open after uninstalling Google Chrome--this operations has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. please contact your system administrator.
Original title: google chrome was sneeky and installed with an adobe update. after uninstalling google chrome, e-mail links will not open.
after receiving what I thought was a routine adobe update, and initiating the downloading, it was revealed that google chrome was a part of that download and there was no selection option, it was an automatic function of the download. i find google chrome
very cumbersome and a drag. I removed google chrome per routine program removal protocols. after i removed google chrome my e-mail links would not open up. a message is given and the message reads-this operations has been cancelled due to restrictions
in effect on this computer. please contact your system administrator.
I have had to re-install google chrome in order to open links in emails. google chrome is a real drag on the system and slows everything down to snails pace.
how can I remove google chrome and have e-mail links open the way they should.
I find it to be an apprehensible practice, underhanded and heavy handed that google forces it's subscriptions and then afterwards creates corruption in your systems requiring you to keep their programs in order to have your computer functioning.
