If your Google chrome browser comes up with “the application failed to initialize properly” error try this:
1) Back up your registry.
2) Open the registry (Start < run <  regedit ).
3) Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SysPlant.
4) Open Start DWORD.
5) Change the value to 4 (this operation will disable the all drivers).
6) Restart your PC.
