Google chrome install problem on Windows XP

I ran into a problem installing Google Chrome on Windows XP (Professional).
When running the installer (the small file that you can obtain from the Google Chrome webpage), the install process would end very very quickly. In theory it should download the full Google Chrome software from the internet, and then the install process would begin.
For some reason, the process was too quick on my machine. In fact, after installing, it appeared as if it had not been installed really. There was no Start menu entry for Chrome, nor could it be executed.
I suspected it had to do with an old installation of Google Chrome (from months ago) that for some reason did not work either.
The solution was to remove all old Chrome Files (basically removing the folder C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome), and do a new install from the Google Chrome webpage.
