Google Chrome Not Updating

Google Chrome Not Updating
I was having trouble with Google Chrome on a new computer. Chrome refused to update itself and I couldn’t make it update. Here is how I fixed it:

The problem turned out to be that Google Update (which maintains Chrome) had been installed on my computer by the manufacturer and wasn’t updating itself. There is no way to uninstall Google Update. To remove Google Update, remove all the dependent programs, wait an hour, and it will uninstall itself.

I uninstalled Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, waited an hour, saw Google Update was gone, reinstalled Chrome and TADA!
