Google Chrome is one of the best web browsers that work on different platforms. Generally, it is solid when it comes to standard browsing sessions and so forth. Sometimes though, users run into errors or issues that make the browser unstable. In certain cases, refreshing error tabs, closing and reopening Google Chrome, fixing internet connection problems, resetting the browser, or even rebooting the computer helps to resolve some of the Chrome browser issues. However, doing the recommended solution might not always work. In such a case, you may have to uninstall and reinstall Google Chrome as a last resort, depending on the issue.
The reinstallation of the Chrome browser can resolve several issues, including the following ones.
Note that in case you remove Google Chrome from your device, then you will lose browser passwords, bookmarks, settings, and everything saved in the browser. Therefore, do it only if other solutions for an error fail to resolve it. For instance, if you come across the “Your preferences could not be read” error message, then perhaps your user profile is corrupt or malicious extensions have compromised the settings of Google Chrome. To resolve the issue, you can try recreating the profile folder of the browser after taking a backup of bookmarks file.
To perform this task, you should first enable hidden files on your Windows 7 computer. For that, follow the steps mentioned below.
You can restore the bookmarks, which you have backed up earlier. For that, follow the steps mentioned below.
If issues including “Your preferences could not be read” persist, despite trying recommended solutions for it, you might have to uninstall and reinstall the browser and get rid of all its traces from your Windows system. To do that on Windows 7, follow the below steps.
Now make sure files are not set as hidden in case you have changed it. Then, you have to rename or delete the Chrome folders on Windows.
When you are done, open Google Chrome to see if the issues you were facing are fixed. It is also recommended to scan for malware and do a quarantine procedure in order to fix Chrome constantly crashing, slowness of the browser or other issues that persist. If any the above troubleshoots do not resolve an error on Google Chrome, you can contact our browser support professionals through the toll-free helpline mentioned above for immediate help.
