How to Fix Uninstall Error 0x80073CFA in Windows 10 and 11 https://sentryparentalcontrols.com/how-to-fix-uninstall-error-0x80073cfa-in-windows-10-and-11/ Tue, 30 Aug 2022 15:15:00 +0000 https://sentryparentalcontrols.com/how-to-fix-uninstall-error-0x80073cfa-in-windows-10-and-11/ Error 0x80073CFA is an uninstall problem for Microsoft Store apps on Windows 10 and 11. It usually happens when you try to uninstall an app, accompanied by an error message that says “We were unable to uninstall]]>

Error 0x80073CFA is an uninstall problem for Microsoft Store apps on Windows 10 and 11. It usually happens when you try to uninstall an app, accompanied by an error message that says “We were unable to uninstall “.

Unfortunately, if you try to uninstall the app to fix a bug, the error may prevent you from performing any kind of diagnostics. As such, here are some potential resolutions for error 0x80073CFA in Windows 11 and 10.


1. Run the Windows Application Troubleshooter

Windows Store Apps Troubleshooter is a tool to fix all sorts of issues with MS Store apps. That doesn’t mean it’s guaranteed to fix error 0x80073CFA, but it’s a troubleshooter worth trying nonetheless.

Here’s how to run it on Windows 11:

  1. Launch Settings by clicking on the pinned shortcut for this app in the Start menu.
  2. Select Troubleshoot (a navigation option on Settings’ System tab) and Other convenience stores.
  3. Scroll down to Windows Store apps, then click the To run option to launch this troubleshooter.

  4. Apply any potential fixes that the Windows Store app troubleshooter presents to you.


Since the Windows 10 Settings app has a slightly different layout, you’ll need to select Update and security > Troubleshoot. Then select the Additional convenience stores navigation link from there. In the list of troubleshooters, click “Windows Store apps”.

2. Run system image and file scans

Corrupt system files are a common culprit of uninstall errors. The System File Checker and Deployment Image Servicing and Management command-line tools can repair and restore files to repair Windows functions. Here’s how to use them:

  1. Display the command prompt with administrator rights. Our beginner’s guide to the command prompt has more information on how to do this.
  2. Type and run (press Walk in) this image maintenance command:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth 

  3. Then press and run the following scan command:
    sfc /scannow

  4. The scan will probably take 15-30 minutes, but sometimes it will take longer. Hold on tight until the scan says it’s complete.
  5. Restart the window after running the scans.


3. Reset Microsoft Store Cache

Corrupt Microsoft Store cache data is another possible cause for uninstall error 0x80073CFA in Windows 11 and 10. Resetting the cache will help clear any corrupt data it may contain. Here’s how to reset cache data with the WSReset.exe command:

  1. Open the command prompt window with administrator user rights.
  2. Enter this command to reset the Microsoft Store cache:
    WSReset.exe 

  3. Hurry Walk in to run the WSReset command and clear the cache.
  4. Select the To restart (Windows) after Microsoft Store reset.

4. Uninstall Affected Apps with PowerShell

Most users trying to fix error 0x80073CFA probably use Windows Settings to uninstall their MS Store apps. However, the error may not occur if you try another way to uninstall your apps. For example, you can try uninstalling affected apps with PowerShell like this:

  1. Hurry To win+ S on your keyboard and type PowerShell in the file search box.
  2. Open Windows PowerShell by right-clicking the corresponding search result and selecting Execute as administrator.
  3. Next, type this command to list apps and tap Come back:
    Get-Appxpackage -Allusers 
  4. Copy an app’s PackageFullName by selecting it and pressing CTRL + VS.

  5. Enter this app uninstall command and press the Come back button, replacement [PackageFullName] with the app title name you copied in step four. No need to type it; just press CTRL+V to stick it.
    Remove-AppxPackage -Package [PackageFullName]

For example, the Photos app uninstall command looks like this:

Remove-AppxPackage -Package Microsoft.Windows.Photos_2022.31070.26005.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe

5. Switch to an administrator account

Uninstallation issues can arise when a user’s account does not have sufficient administrator account permissions to remove certain software. If you are using a standard Windows user account, you may need to upgrade to an administrator account to resolve error 0x80073CFA.


You can switch from a standard user account to an administrator alternative through the Control Panel as follows:

  1. Open Run and type Control Panel in the control box of this accessory.
  2. Click on OKAY to display the control panel.
  3. Select User accounts to open this applet.
  4. Click it Change your account type navigation option.

  5. Select the Administrator radio button.

  6. press the Change account type option.
  7. Restart your computer, then try uninstalling the apps in your administrator account.

You can also try setting up a brand new administrator account and uninstalling apps from it. You can transfer user data from your old account to the new one. Our guide to creating a new user account to troubleshoot Windows issues provides more details on how to do this.

6. Uninstall Apps After Clean Boot Windows 11

Clean Boot sets the boot configuration in System Configuration to exclude all third-party apps and services from booting. This will ensure that no third-party programs can conflict with the UWP apps uninstallation process. One of our guides tells you how to perform a clean boot in Windows 11 with MSConfig and Task Manager.


Restart Windows 11 when you have Clean Boot configured, then try uninstalling UWP apps to check if error 0x80073CFA still occurs. If not, you’ll know that there must be at least one conflicting third-party app or service causing the problem. The error will likely reoccur if you restore your original startup settings without identifying the service or application causing the problem.

7. Reinstall the Microsoft Store app

Users have confirmed that reinstalling the Microsoft Store app can resolve error 0x80073CFA. To do this, you can run a general command to reinstall all preinstalled Windows 11 apps in an elevated PowerShell. Here are the steps to reinstall Microsoft Store in Windows:

  1. Launch Windows PowerShell as shown in the first two steps of resolution four.
  2. Then enter this application reinstallation command:
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml"} 

  3. Hurry Walk in to reinstall MS Store.
  4. Restart Windows after running the PowerShell command.

If the above command returns an error, try adding –Verbose until the end before running it. Then rerun the original command specified in step two. The modified command should look like this:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml" -Verbose} 

8. Factory Reset Windows

Factory reset restores Windows to a default configuration by reinstalling the platform. Windows 11/10. We recommend trying this possible solution for error 0x80073CFA only as a last resort, as you will need to reinstall software packages that were not pre-installed with Windows. However, the Reset this PC tool has at least one option you can select to retain user files after the reset.

If you want to try this fix, check out our Windows factory reset guide. This guide includes four alternative methods with which you can restore the operating system to factory settings. Reset Windows 11/10 with Reset this PC utility so you can choose to keep user files.

Get Error 0x80073CFA Sorted On Your PC

These resolutions will likely get the 0x80073CFA error sorted out on your Windows 11/10 PC so that you can uninstall UWP apps again. However, we don’t promise guaranteed fixes for everyone. Try at least some of these potential solutions before contacting Microsoft Windows Support about error 0x80073CFA.

Express press service

BENGALURU: While the state government of Karnataka promotes green energy, little or no attention has been paid to the management of solar panel waste. Now used solar panels are dumped in landfills and treated as regular waste. Recyclers are also hesitant to recycle panels, as the cost of producing new panels has dropped significantly in recent years. Environmentalists point out that solar module waste is not covered by current policies on solid waste management rules, which could lead to major environmental concerns down the road.

“Bengaluru does not have a separate center for recycling or disposing of solar waste,” said Vinod, owner of V1 Energy, a solar power equipment supplier. If there is less waste, it is usually thrown away with regular waste, if there is a lot, it is sent to landfills. Vinod said he does not prefer recycling because it is expensive and making new panels is much cheaper.

The draft Karnataka Renewable Energy Policy for the next five years, presented by the Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Limited (KREDL), makes no mention of disposal of solar panel waste. Worryingly, this waste could reach huge levels, as Karnataka is among the leading states in the renewable energy (RE) sector.

“The panels installed in the early 2000s are about to expire and will be discarded in a few years. This will generate large amounts of waste, and if the country does not come up with a waste management policy at the earliest, we will not be able to deal with the waste at the eleventh hour,” said Ayush Shukla, director of the National Federation of ‘solar energy. of India (NSEFI).

An environment officer from the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board admitted that there was a need for a policy which should be chalked out by the Centre. Best practices from other countries should be adopted when formulating the policy, he added.

A report by Bridge To India (BTI), a renewable energy consultancy, said the volume of photovoltaic (PV) panel waste in the country is expected to reach 2,000,000 tonnes by 2030 and around 1.8 million tons by 2050. .

Most solar recycling plants only remove silver and copper from cells. They burn the glass and plastic casings in cement kilns for recycling. Incineration releases toxins and greenhouse gases into the environment. “As the process is expensive and time-consuming, companies prefer to throw the dead panels into landfills or export them to third world countries,” said Poorna Khanna, an environmentalist.

Studies have shown that heavy metals found in solar panels, including lead and cadmium, can contaminate groundwater and affect plant life. Records also show that these metals can harm human health, she said.

Zoho Assist Review | PCMag https://sentryparentalcontrols.com/zoho-assist-review-pcmag/ Fri, 26 Aug 2022 19:09:14 +0000 https://sentryparentalcontrols.com/zoho-assist-review-pcmag/ It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Zoho makes remote access software – the Chennai, India-based company apparently makes every type of business app you can imagine.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Zoho makes remote access software – the Chennai, India-based company apparently makes every type of business app you can imagine. What’s surprising is how different Zoho Assist feels from its competitors.

Zoho Assist is designed with technical support in mind. The interface, which runs entirely in the browser, is full of bells and whistles. Some features that I haven’t come across in any other remote access app include the ability to take control of Android and iOS devices. All of this, combined with a decent free version for personal use, makes Assist a compelling option. Be warned, however, that this app is primarily intended for IT administrators, and is organized as such. Beginners shouldn’t start here.


How much does Zoho Assist cost?

Zoho Assist offers a free version for personal use that can access up to five unattended computers and unlimited unique remote sessions (one at a time). That’s generous, considering most apps in this space don’t offer a free version, with the exception of Editors’ Choice winner TeamViewer, which offers all the features for free for personal use.

Paid plans required for business use start at $12 per month or $120 per year for Standard. This plan includes file transfers, multi-screen compatibility, voice chat, and more. To get video chat and whiteboard, you need the Enterprise service tier for $28 per month or $288 per year.

The prices are competitive but maybe not the best offers of the moment. Our Editors’ Choice for paid remote access software is RemotePC, which starts at $19.99 per year with unattended access to a single computer and unlimited single remote sessions. Teamviewer’s paid plans start at $414 per year, which is considerably higher than Zoho Assist, but Teamviewer also offers a more generous free version. Both apps perform considerably better than Zoho Assist in terms of streaming quality, which I’ll get to later. Zoho Assist is worth considering, given its price, especially if you’re primarily focused on providing remote assistance.


What operating systems does Zoho Assist work on?

Zoho Assist can be used to access devices running Windows (XP and later), macOS (10.9 Mavericks and later), Linux (latest versions), Android (5.0 Lollipop and later), and iOS (11.0 and later). later, but unattended access is not supported).

Zoho Assist can fully access devices from the web browser or app on mobile devices. There are desktop versions of Zoho Assist for Windows, macOS, and Linux, but this is just the web version that runs in a dedicated window. You don’t get any additional functionality.


Begin

Zoho Assist runs primarily in the browser and requires an account. Register at zoho.com/assist(Opens in a new window). The service opens to the Remote Assistance screen, which provides access to someone else’s computer.

By clicking Start now generates a link that you can share with anyone whose computer you want to access. This link walks your customer through the process of downloading and running the app, which will share their screen with you, after which you can take control.

Alternatively, if you want to access your devices, you can head to the Unattended Access tab. You can add devices in the Deployment tab, which has a blue Add device link. Click it to generate a deployment link, which you can use to install and configure the software on a device. If that sounds a bit obtuse, it’s because it’s software designed specifically for IT professionals, and as such, it doesn’t hold your hand.

Stuttering but does the job

I set up unattended access on a Windows 10 PC and Android phone, then accessed those devices from a Macbook, Windows laptop, and iPad Mini. In any case, I found the streaming quality of Zoho Access to be a little lower than competitors like TeamViewer and RemotePC, regardless of the browser I used. It’s possible to perform basic tasks, like editing documents or browsing the web, but anything involving graphics or media is a no-start, even on a local network. Zoho Access worked consistently during my testing and should be more than adequate for the types of tech support situations the software is built around.

And it’s not just screen control on offer here. The diagnostic button in the left menu bar, offered only when connected to a Windows computer, allows you to run the command prompt or PowerShell, kill apps from the task manager, and see the specifications of each piece of hardware connected to a Windows computer. That’s a lot of power, and I wish it wasn’t limited to Windows.

With the diagnostic button, you can find out a lot about a device without having to move your mouse, which is great if you’re trying to diagnose a problem. You also get buttons to quickly launch Control Panel and System Properties, which can cut down on the time you’re trying to navigate the Start menu on a remote computer. These features save time for technical support personnel.


Zoho Assist used to remotely access a mobile device

(Credit: PCMag)

Access mobile devices

Zoho Assist lets you remotely control Android and Apple mobile devices, a feature that most remote access software doesn’t offer. It works best on Android, where Zoho Assist can fully control the device. Performance isn’t amazing. Even with the two devices sitting next to each other, there was lag. But I could use a real keyboard to chat with my family on Snapchat – not the intended use, okay, but that was pretty cool. Navigation is tricky because Android isn’t designed to be controlled with a mouse and keyboard.

The experience is different on Apple devices, where Zoho Assist can only display the screen, not taking control of anything. It’s disappointing but unavoidable given Apple’s tighter security restrictions. Still, it could be a useful way to tell someone about a problem with their iPad, a useful tip for your toolbox when providing tech support to loved ones, for example. The display quality isn’t amazing, but it’s more than enough to figure out what’s going on.


Zoho Assist File Transfer Tool

File and other features

To transfer files, you use a drag-and-drop interface or, if you prefer, the system’s standard “open” menu. The lack of a two-pronged file transfer tool is disappointing but probably impossible given the web-based nature of the platform. The only remote access software with a convenient two-pane file transfer interface are RemotePC and GoToMyPC.

Zoho Assist offers a chat feature for real-time communication and an option to leave a digital note if you need access to someone’s machine while they’re away and want to talk to them. know what you have done. Video and audio chat is included, delivered through a browser window. The whiteboard feature is called Annotation and can only be triggered from the session window on the remote device.

A particularly missing feature is remote audio from the accessed machine. In other words, you cannot hear what is happening on the remote machine. Zoho Assist is the only remote access software I’ve tested without this feature.


A mixed bag

Zoho Assist is not for beginners, and intentionally. It’s remote access software designed from the ground up for people who provide customer support. The free version gives a lot of power to those of us who often end up as unpaid customer support for friends and family, while the full versions come with all sorts of features a professional might need. And Zoho Assist could work for either group.

What makes it hard to recommend is the streaming quality, which is very poor compared to the best remote access software, namely TeamViewer, our Editor’s Choice winner for personal use, and RemotePC , our Editor’s Choice for professional use. Both apps offer better streaming quality and offer better value for given use cases. Zoho Assist is worth considering, especially if you’re primarily going to be using remote access software to offer assistance.

By the staff of the Oregon Coast Beach Connection

(Florence, Oregon) – With a big party already planned, an Oregon Coast attraction suddenly has something to celebrate even more. In Florence, at the Siuslaw Pioneer Museum, August 26 is a day of celebration in honor of the 90th anniversary of the Sea Lion Caves, with a big party starting at 5 p.m. (Photo above courtesy of Sea Lion Caves)

However, the museum recently learned of a substantial financial donation – the amount of which will be revealed at the party on Friday. The co-owners of Sea Lion Caves will present the gift to the Siuslaw Pioneer Museum that day.

One historic Oregon Coast attraction celebrates another – and it, in turn, celebrates right away. It’s a kind of tourist synergy which is a unique moment here.


Photo Connection to Oregon Coast Beach

“The festivities begin at 5:00 p.m. with champagne and wine for the seniors, juice, cookies and other festive snacks,” said museum board chairman Del Phelps. “We will have a special historical exhibit dedicated to the sea lion caves and presentations by local dignitaries. It will be a great occasion for all.

For Sea Lion Caves, the connection is personal.

“We thank the Siuslaw Pioneer Museum for their support in putting together historical exhibits, not just about the sea lion caves, but about the history of the entire region, from first nations peoples to settlers and onward. quite modern times. They have a real community treasure that everyone should see,” said Steve Saubert, one of the co-owners of Sea Lion Caves. “And we hope the whole community will join in the Sea Lion Caves anniversary party at the museum.”

Saubert and Phelps also said attendees who contribute financially to museum operations will receive a family pass to Sea Lion Caves, valid for use over the next 12 months.

Since 1932, visitors to the area have been able to descend, first by wooden staircase, now by elevator, some 200 feet from the clifftop above America’s largest sea cave to to the cavernous surroundings of hundreds of frolicking pinnipeds, including Steller and California sea lions. . The entire site is designated a National Wildlife Refuge for the animals and birds that live there.

Some on the Oregon Coast claim the biggest this or the smallest that – but Sea Lion Caves lived up to that claim. Oregon Coast Beach Connection has checked with the Guinness Book of World Records organization and has indeed listed sea lion caves in this category.

Visitors to the Siuslaw Pioneer Museum are transported back in time by a diversity of exhibits showing slices of life before white settlers came to the Siuslaw area and back to life in the 1950s.

On two floors, displays display items ranging from an authentic canoe, tools and clothing of the first inhabitants to household items of the pioneers; from early logging and fishing tools to the control panel once used by the Siuslaw River drawbridge operator; and one of the first switchboards.

Visitors will learn about the hard life of those who started the logging and fishing industries around Florence in the mid to late 1800s and see examples of the delicate side of life through cutlery and work manual of talented lacemakers and quilters.

278 Maple Street in Florence. It will be free to the public.

At the Weatherford Democrat, we weren’t at all surprised to learn recently that water consumption was skyrocketing across Texas. According to Barbara Brown of Denton County Master Gardeners, recent studies have found that nearly 50% of water use in North Central Texas is for single family residences with a large increase in use in the summer for water our lawns and landscape plants.

More and more people are flocking to the counties surrounding Dallas/Fort Worth. A vast system of aquifers that stretches south through Dallas, Waco, Austin and San Antonio is where most of the water comes from to support the population explosion we’ve seen in Texas over the past few years. last 40 years. We are using far more water than ever before, to allow 15 million people to live in a region that is too hot and too dry to support them for more than a century or so — at most.

Worsening droughts and heat waves affecting Texas and the rest of the West are complicating matters. Excessive heat is also evaporating surface waters – ponds, reservoirs, spring-fed lakes and the like – at an increasing rate. Whether or not you believe in climate change, you can look out the window and see these effects for yourself.

There are also animals to think about. Humans are competing with livestock for water at rates not seen in this region. Water tables are falling, grasses are drying up and herders are selling more of their herds than they would like due to rising feed costs – all because there is not enough water to grow enough hay and grass to support normal herd levels.

According to Brown, we have three choices: build more reservoirs, modify existing infrastructure, or – heaven forbid – conserve far more than we currently do. Conservation seems to be the cheapest and least disruptive solution.

What to do?

Before calling us a den of greens and alarmists, take a moment to think about the problem.

The Upper Trinidad Regional Water District reports that “more than 50% of the landscape’s water is wasted due to overwatering, inefficient watering practices, and broken or poorly maintained irrigation systems. “.

“To optimize the performance of an irrigation system, owners should regularly check the heads for breakage, clogging or missing heads. Check water pressure and coverage at each head. You may want to hire a certified irrigation inspector to check components which should include the isolation and drain valve, discharge and zone devices, sensors and control panel,” according to Brown .

She goes on to recommend selecting plants that are water-smart, meaning they grow comfortable in typical north-central Texas conditions and don’t require excessive supplemental water. See ratings in the Texas Smartscape Plant Database (http://www.txsmartscape.com/plant-search/).

Do not water too much or too often. Generally, one inch of water per week is all that is needed to keep your landscape healthy and beautiful, except during the hottest weeks of summer.

If you have a space dedicated to vegetables, herbs or landscape, consider adding a drip irrigation system, which uses less water than a sprinkler. A typical drip system includes isolation and control valves, backflow preventer, filter, adapter, emitters, connecting tubing and tubing. The drip tube sits on the ground in your bed with plant-placed or evenly spaced emitters.

Adding a three-inch layer of mulch around your vegetable and landscape plants also reduces water use by retaining moisture and moderating soil temperatures so less water is lost to evaporation.

better habits

We believe building better habits now leaves more water for the future – spend a little less time in the shower, run slightly larger loads in the washer, don’t use the dishwasher so often, and and so on. Small gestures, sure, but when you multiply them by the millions of people who live in Texas, they can make a long-term difference.

Public policy figures are also involved in all this. We think cities and counties will have to think harder and harder before approving the construction of homes and businesses on prairie land that has only housed cows, horses and sheep for the past thousands of years. ‘years. We also believe that local and state agencies need to start encouraging people to stop trying to keep Kentucky Bluegrass in their yards. People need to adopt native plants and prairie grasses that use far less water.

None of these ideas will create a reasonable path for people to continue to crowd into Texas and the rest of Sun Belt for decades or centuries to come. We simply don’t have enough water to sustain the growth we’ve seen over the past 40 years.

We believe it is time for everyone, regardless of their ideological leanings, to recognize these issues in a serious and sustained manner. A border wall won’t solve it, nor will a ban on new construction or state laws mandating household water use.

We need to change the way we think about our environment. Our resources are not infinite and they will disappear if we do not use them responsibly.

It’s a box that can no longer be thrown on the road.

The Border Security Force (BSF) plans to upgrade its outposts in Jammu and Kashmir to deal with the growing drone incidents across the border – Pakistan.

He plans to get anti-drone guns which should be lightweight and easy to use one-handed/two-handed. These anti-drone guns will be part of BSF’s plans to upgrade its 112 outposts in Jammu and Kashmir as Pakistan pushes weapons and narcotics across the border into that region.

OSB requirement

According to the specifications drawn up by BSF, the weight of the system must not exceed 10 kg for 2 km of autonomy and 6 kg for 1 km.

The system must be able to shut down communication between the target Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) and the remote control by jamming the data links. And it should have the ability to jam the standard UAS GNSS/remote frequency.

This anti-drone gun must be a handheld/backpack combination; tripod mountable; feasibility for Hand Hold/Back Pack; operate in a day and night environment; and be easily portable.

The system sought by BSF should be capable of neutralizing helicopters, fixed-wing UAVs, radio-controlled UAVs, UAS and others in different categories within a specified range of the radio frequency spectrum.

Additionally, the system must have an intuitive control panel user interface that can select and also engage jamming frequencies to defeat the target. Should also have a compact design, with a control panel user interface. And allow operators to select and activate radio frequency disturbance frequency modes that would trigger a jamming operation.

And in the second phase of its upgrade process, and to deal with the electricity problems of these posts, the BSF has planned a complete solarization so that the force deployed in this area can easily cope with any problem.

The Google Chrome “err_tunnel_connection_failed” error message appears when the browser fails to establish a connection to your websites. You will need to check your connection settings and make the necessary changes to work around this issue. We’ll show you how to do that.

If you’re curious why the error occurs, it’s usually the result of a bad proxy server. However, there are also other reasons that can cause this problem with your favorite web browser.

Disable proxy to fix err_tunnel_connection_failed error

When Chrome encounters a proxy-related issue like your current one, disable your proxy server and see if that fixes the problem. You can disable your proxy feature from Control Panel and Settings. Here we will use the Parameters method.

  2. Launch Chromium and see if you can connect to your sites.

Your sites should load when you disable the proxy. But if you need to use a proxy server for some reason, contact your server team to resolve issues that cause Chrome to display an “err_tunnel_connection_failed” error message.

Reset your network stack

Your network configuration determines how your PC connects to the Internet. Suppose your network settings are having problems or are misconfigured. In this case, you will have to fix this to eliminate the connection error in Chrome.

One way to do this is to reset your entire network stack in Windows. This should resolve any issues with your network settings and your “err_tunnel_connection_failed” error will likely be resolved.

  1. Access Begin menu, search Command Promptand select Execute as administrator.

    ipconfig /renew
    netsh int ip reset
    reset netsh winsock

  1. After running all these commands, restart your PC by opening the Begin menu, by selecting the Power icon, and choosing To restart.
  2. Launch Chromium when your PC restarts and try to open your sites.

Check if Chrome extensions are the culprit

Chrome lets you install various extensions to get the most out of the web browser. Sometimes these extensions come at a cost. This cost usually corresponds to the interference of the extension with the functioning of Chrome.

When this happens, Chrome encounters various issues, including “err_tunnel_connection_failed”. One way to work around these extension issues is to launch Chrome without extensions and see if your sites load. If so, one or more of your extensions is the culprit.

In this case, you can activate one extension at a time to finally find the problematic extension. You can then remove this faulty add-on to repair your Chrome browser.

  1. Open Chromiumselect the three dots in the upper right corner, then choose New incognito window.
