Google Chrome Installation error code 0x80004002

Hi, I had such a difficult time trying to resolve this error that I thought I would post the fix for it when I figured it out.

This is not my original solution, I found it while researching but this solved my problem for installing google chrome update.

1.  Go to Start > Run
   2. In the 'Run' window that appears, enter regedit in the text field and click the OK button.
   3. In the 'Registry Editor' window, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Google\Update\Clients\.
   4. Right-click the directory '{430FD4D0-B729-4F61-AA34-91526481799D}.'
   5. Select Delete from the menu that appears.
   6. Close the 'Registry Editor' window.
   7. Try installing the program again.


  1. No me funcionó Se ha producido un error durante la actualización (error: 3).Se ha producido un error al comprobar las actualizaciones: No se ha podido iniciar la comprobación de actualizaciones (código de error 3: 0x80080005).

  2. the directory stated above isn't in the registry editor

  3. Thank you but it didn't work on my Windows xp,sp2 Dell computer with IE (no longer working after previously removing Google)
