Google Chrome not Updating with 'Update server not available (Error: 3)'

If you are using Google Chrome and have disabled UAC (the popup with dark background that comes up every now and then; chances are your browser might be 'very' outdated. you can confirm this by clicking on the wrench on the top right,just  below the close button - then: 'About Google Chrome'.
It should say 'Google chrome is up to date' but instead if it says: 'Cannot reach update server Error 3'
- Re-enable UAC then reboot and check again.
Chrome has a standalone updater that is run by the Task-Scheduler; which if not misconfigured should have been able to update Chrome regardless.
