Google Chrome won’t open in Windows 10

After you do so, your Google Chrome browser should work fine on Windows 10.

How can I fix Class not registered error in Google Chrome?

1. Give a try to Opera

give a try to Opera

Chrome’s popularity is unquestionable, yet are you aware of the fact that Opera has features not found in Google’s browser?

That reason only determined countless users to make the switch, not to mention that it’s an incredibly lightweight browser, so opening issues are nothing to worry about.

Opera packs a built-in cryptocurrency wallet for safe online transactions, as well as free built-in VPN, reducing online tracking and guaranteeing anonymity above all.



Opera is incredibly stable, brilliantly offering an enjoyable browsing experience. That’s why it’s a worthy alternative to Chrome.

2. Tweak your registry

  1. Before you perform these registry tweaks you should create a system restore point first, just in case
  2. Press Windows+R keys to open the Run window.
  3. After that, type regedit in the Search to open the Registry Editor.
  4. In Registry Editor delete the following two registry keys:
    • HKLMSoftwareClassesChrome
    • HKLMSoftwareClassesChromeHTMLopencommandDelegateExecute
  5. Deleting the DelegateExecute registry will disable Chrome’s AppID. When Chrome updates itself, you may find that these keys have been re-created. In such a case, delete these keys again.
  6. Restart your Windows PC.

Note: Perform the above steps in order to solve the Chrome error and fix the registry. Another solution to fix the registry for Chrome is to use Restoro. You can find more details in our Restoro guide.

  4. Restart your computer once the scanning process is completed to check if the error persists.

Keep in mind that you might get several error messages while this command is running. After the command is executed, restart your PC and check if the problem is resolved.
