I think, right now even though Google Chrome has been claimed as one of the most advanced web browsers on the world, it also causes some infamous errors such as the Google encrypted error and  error 138 message. And recently some users contact me and tell that, upon updating Google Chrome on the PC, they keep on receiving a code 0X0000005 error message and cannot install the chrome correctly on the PC. I have just come across the problem several days ago but so glad to fix it by myself. Here, take my own experience as an example, I will show you how to troubleshoot and fix Google Chrome error 0X0000005 easily.

error code 0X0000005

Most of the time, the Google Chrome error 0X0000005 happens when there is something wrong with the browser itself. So, when getting the error message, give the following tips a try! It can most of the time deal with the problem instantly on the PC:

*Right-click the Google Chrome icon on your desktop (NOT the download installation file but the icon created as you install the browser).
*Select Properties
*In the Shortcut tab, go to the end of the Target section which says “C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe”
*Place a space right after the last ” and type –no-sandbox
*Click Apply and OK to save your settings.
* Then, re-update your Google Chrome again and it should work.

Sometimes, an update will be aborted by some computer viruses and cause the code 0X0000005 error message. We know that, it is quite easy for a computer to get infected even though it is only for daily used. As you download a freeware from the Internet, open a strange email attachment, or browse even a safe page, you will come to the risk of being infected. Soon after getting on the PC, they will severely disrupt your computer, deny service, accumulate data on PC, acquire access to your computers resources, or stop you from installing some applications on the PC, etc. After the above steps, no matter it works or not, you’d better completely scan your whole PC and remove all PC viruses. Also, it is advised that you can let your PC protection program always running in the background to realtime block and remove any threat to the PC.

Thirdly, clear the cache and troubleshoot & fix extension errors. Some data including your browsing and download history, cache, cookies, passwords, and saved form data sometimes can be a major cause for Google Chrome error 0X0000005. At this time, directly clear all these from your PC. To do this, you can follow these steps:

*Click the Chrome on the browser toolbar and then select Tools.
*Select Clear browsing data.
*In the appearing dialog, select the checkboxes for the types of information that you want to remove and select a time period.
*Click Clear browsing data and it will automatically clear all those data.

To troubleshoot and fix extension errors, first you have to know that though they are helpful allowing you to easily control your Google Chrome, it on the other side can work incompatibly with the browser or sometimes stop you from updating it or launching it properly. To check and uninstall a problematic extension, just select “Extension” from Tool option, click the trash icon by the extension you would like to remove and then “Remove” to uninstall the extension.

Finally, to fix the Google Chrome error 0X0000005 you still have to check and repair Windows registry errors. As you install the chrome, it will automatically add some entries to the database so as to tell the system when and how to launch it correctly. However, such entries are very easy to get corrupted as you uninstall/install a program, or when the computer gets infected, stopping the system from running the Google Chrome properly. Seriously, when the Google Chrome cannot locate the required entries to install an available update, a code 0X0000005 error will be generated immediately. Hence, you need to always keep the computer registry error-clean by either modifying it manually or launching a certain registry optimization program regularly. Compared with a manual job, an automatic tool helps to easily avoid the risk of losing some important data and the whole PC. If you do not know enough knowledge with the computer, you’d better download and run a registry clean tool to do the job for you safely.

Well, you are not alone on the world to get a Google Chrome error 0X0000005 message. By following the above steps, you will be able to instantly troubleshoot the error & deal with it the simplest way and then install your updates properly.
