[Chrome] Updates are disabled by the administrator

If you are a Chrome lover and Chrome is not automatically doing updates to your browser then there can be following two reasons of the same:

- Administrator has disabled the updates (If you are not the admin, request admin to enable it)
- You are getting an message in Chrome Menu --> About Google Chrome --> Updates are disabled by the administrator

If you are facing the second problem, all you need to do the following:

Go to registry Editor and change the following registry
RegEdit --> HKEY_Local_Machine -->Software --> Policies --> Google --> Update --> Update Update Default to 1 from 0

Restart your browser and you are good to go.

Let me know if this works?
