Chrome fails to install

8

I had an interesting experience this morning.

A user of a Windows 7 PC wanted a browser other than IE, because it was dog slow on the websites they need (E.g. weather.com – he works in a chemical park and some storage products are temperature sensitive and have to be held within a certain range, so can’t be stored outside or transported if it is too hot or too cold).

He wanted Chrome, so I downloaded it from Google, but it failed to isntall – bother with his user account UACed to administrator for the install and as administrator on the PC. It failed each time after downloading and going through 60% of the install with a “couldn’t extract file” error.

I put Firefox on the PC, that installed without any problems.

Has anyone else had problems installing Chrome?
