How can I fix Class not registered error in Google Chrome?
1. Give a try to Opera
Chrome’s popularity is unquestionable, yet are you aware of the fact that Opera has features not found in Google’s browser?
That reason only determined countless users to make the switch, not to mention that it’s an incredibly lightweight browser, so opening issues are nothing to worry about.
Opera packs a built-in cryptocurrency wallet for safe online transactions, as well as free built-in VPN, reducing online tracking and guaranteeing anonymity above all.
Opera is incredibly stable, brilliantly offering an enjoyable browsing experience. That’s why it’s a worthy alternative to Chrome.
2. Tweak your registry
- Before you perform these registry tweaks you should create a system restore point first, just in case
- Press Windows+R keys to open the Run window.
- After that, type regedit in the Search to open the Registry Editor.
- In Registry Editor delete the following two registry keys:

- Go to Start and launch Command Prompt as an administrator.
- Enter the following command:
FOR /R C: %G IN (*.dll) DO “%systemroot%\system32\regsvr32.exe” /s “%G”
