Fix: Google Chrome is out of date – Group Policy settings (error: 7)

I’ve been living with the red menu icon bars in Google Chrome for quite a while and finally decided to have another go at solving it.

I’m currently using SplashTop 2 as a way to access my HTPC (Home Theater PC) remotely from not only any other computer or laptop but also from any smartphone or tablet! It works great as long as both the server and client computers are using the same WIFI connection. The only catch is that it chokes on any programs running full-screen. The solution is simply to only run programs in windowed mode. There are two ways to do this in Windows 7: Add “-window” at...
