Firefox won't let me install Chrome

For some specific reason I uninstalled Chrome - probably something to do with security, I guess but then I seemed to find the answer and it had nothing to do with Chrome. I've therefore tried to re-install it but failed. I can download it and save it but when I try to run and load it nothing happens. Any answers will be appreciated.

No and yes - I tried in all kinds of configurations - but essentially I simply Googled the Chrome download and tried from there via my Firefox browser...but that's what seemed to block me. I even tried via IE (with Firefox off) without success.

But just an hour or so ago I found a solution! Real Player had signed me out and in order to sign in again I found that the simplest way to do so was to remove it and start again, which I did. And when the 'new' Real Player started up I was asked to sign in and they also said that they recommended Chrome and provided a link to download it from. That I did - successfully, even though Firefox was still running! Strange world.

So yes, problem solved, but not the way I expected it - nevertheless thanks for your reply.

Was Firefox running at the time? The browser can not prevent you from installing other programs.

Where are you getting Chrome from?
