How to block tracking cookies in Google Chrome

27. April 2018 15:08 by admin in CHROME, SECURITY


Web sites plant cookies for all kinds of reasons, some good, and many not so good. If you visit the New York Times, for example, there are nearly 80 cookies planted, many from services that do nothing but collect your browsing habits and track you all over the web.

1. Click the favicon at the left of the address bar. If it's https, click the green "Secure" icon. You'll see a popup with a list of options. 
2. Near the bottom will be "cookies" Click that and you will see the screen in the photo. From here you can block any cookies you don't like. You're welcome.

NOTE: If you like to stay signed in to your Google account, don't block any Google cookies.


A Fix for Chrome in Windows 8

13. October 2013 10:14 by admin in CHROME, WINDOWS 8

Installed chrome on Windows 8.
Chose chrome as the default browser.
After this chrome opens itself as a Win 8 app. This is the last time it will do so.

Clicking the Chrome tile on the start screen does nothing.
Clicking a link that should go to the web in the metro interface does nothing.

Only by left clicking the shortcut in desktop mode and right clicking "new window" OR by left clicking the shortcut in desktop mode and left clicking Google Chrome and right clicking "run as administrator" can I open chrome at all.


To fix this issue you have to delete a couple of things from the registry:

HKLM\Software\Classes\ChromeHTML\open\command\DelegateExecute  <—delete theDelegateExecute entry
HKLM\Software\Classes\Chrome <—delete this entire key


That should do it!
