How come Google Chrome says variables are not defined?

by on April 26, 2010

Q: I’ve recently used a few programs from uniblue such as their registry booster (which unfortunately didn’t ask me to backup my registry) and speedupmypc programs. after running both scans and “fixing” all problems, the font on my computer (running on windows 7) became extremely pixelated, which i later fixed with cleartype text.

I still have problems with google chrome (and yes, I’ve tried reinstalling). I sometimes get reference errors, saying that a certain variable is not defined. Also, on facebook, none of the blue buttons work (i.e. share, comment, etc.) and the search bar doesn’t drop down and give me suggestions anymore. also, most ads don’t show up on just about every site and is replaced with a small icon in the middle of a white rectangular box. How can I fix this?

    Your windows registry is probably very messed up from the “cleaning”. See if you have a restore point from before the cleaning, and go back to that: see http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/700-system-restore.html for a guide

    If you don’t have that, I suggest you just do a Windows reinstall and avoid registry cleaning programs in the future. After Windows ’98 they don’t really make any real improvement to system performance. Also do some googling of a utility for reviews before you run it on your system. There is a lot of garbage out there.

    i’ve already tried system restoring- windows 7 apparently saves a restore point every time theres an update or every time i install a program. it didn’t fix any of my problems.

    Did you try a restore point other than your most recent one? Windows 7 allows you to choose the restore point, it looks I have some going back about a month. The instructions above detail how to do this.

    If none of that works, my only other suggestions is a Windows reinstall.

    yes. i chose a restore point that was dated 3 days before the change. i don’t really want to go through the trouble of reinstalling windows, but thanks anyway.
