    I just looked.... it seems Chrome doesn't want to allow downloads of previous versions.
    All the previous version websites I'm familiar with, don't pop up in the search results.
    yeah that was what I was finding also, thanks for looking

    There's a hint below: look for an msi file on your PC that corresponds to an earlier build. You might be lucky..

    Easy way to do that: get a free 3rd party search tool and search for *.msi - in
    C:\Windows\Installer


    Open a command prompt.

    To downgrade to the version that you last manually installed using the MSI file, enter msiexec /fvomus GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise.msi ALLOWDOWNGRADE=1

    Otherwise, enter msiexec /i GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise.msi ALLOWDOWNGRADE=1

    I found this, and it scans clean locally and at Virustotal...

    Google Chrome 112 Offline Installer Download


    Scroll way down and click this download button...

    Can you downgrade Chrome?-image1.png


    When you click this button... two things will occur. A web page will open and the download box will open on your desktop.

    Ignore the web page that opens and in the download box on your desktop... SAVE the download to wherever you like. Do NOT click anything on the web page... the web page looks fishy to me.




    This is an offline installer.
    I would do this...

    1. Export your bookmarks and save them to a storage drive. Then unhook the internet.
    2. Uninstall Google Chrome
    3. Install this, then import your bookmarks.
    4. Then do whatever is need to block updates. Then rehook the internet.

    I edited the 4 steps at the bottom, in the above post.



    Note: It looks like you have plenty of storage. You should probably be using backup software.
    Then rolling back... is easy as pie.

    If you've not used 3rd party backup software before, I would try AOMEI Backupper Standard, first.
    All the info for AOMEI is at the bottom of this post...

    The more I think about it I am going to keep the version I have and hope the next updateis better. I will be building a new system soon and I will have to install if fresh again anyway and who know it could be what makes it work better.

    Thanks for all your help

    Check out 3rd party backup software.
    It really makes problems like this... easy to deal with.

    For example if some update from Microsoft or anyone, breaks Windows or one of your programs, you can just restore from a backup to fix the problem. You can even access your backups, when Windows won't boot.

    One of these two. Macrium is no longer free though. AOMEI is still free, and a bit simpler to use...
