Fix Google Chrome Crash Problem After Update – Resolved

I have almost migrated to Google Chrome browser. For last 2-3 months I am using it as default browser, as of now it has got a lot of useful extensions which add many new features while browsing. While I updated it from previous older version to new one, it started reacting as I had done something wrong to it!

Report like “ Chrome stopped Working “ became an usual on my PC. After few minutes of browsing, it suddenly crash and restart. In such situation the flow of work get disturbed. Not only this for some sites like orkut and twitter, while opening them blank or some coded page  was appearing. Neither cleaning browsing data nor re-installation helped.

    actually what is that user data folder is for ? why are we deleting that ?

  4. Ankit Avatar

    @Srivathsanuser data folder contains user's profile info.If you are facing the problem again then delete "Local State" file in user data folder…this can also solve your problem. This process will not uninstall the existing extensions.

    @Google Chrome UserSometimes changing compatibility mode to Windows Vista also works fine. This is the case with few users who reported this tweak is working. Hope this will also work for you. And before changing compatibility, don't forget to remove others tweaks(above), which you did earlier.

    Suddenly and maybe after I have tried to open a harmful page, The site opens many windows and closing them will be slower, I disconnected Net and Task-Manager Closed Google-Chrome, after that it started a situation, not to load anything and the Tabs then after about one minute crashes X-( , Gears page cant be opened, Download folder cant be opened,

    Uninstalling and Deleting whole user data and Re-download and install it again Did not solve the problem

    The Option -no-sandbox makes it works but it says the stability and Security Suffer !!!

    where do you think the problem is, in Registry maybe?

    I need to run Chrome normally.

    Thanks in advance.

      Remove this -no-sandbox trick and try installing fresh beta version from here:
      Hope this will definitely help you out. And if you are using Internet Download Manager, then remove advanced integration setting from IDM, as this makes chrome unstable.

      Please uninstall the older version of Chrome and then re-install it again. Use onsite-installer to install the latest version.

    When I download Chrome, in the uninstall area it shows no size for Google Chrome. I am still getting error and none of the ideas work as I have yet to locate any of those type files or folders on my PC. I am using Windows 7

    1. Ankit Avatar

      Hi Gower, you can use Standalone install version of Google Chrome for this purpose.

    Crashing fix

    Open chrome in incognito window. Open settings and disconnect your google profile.

    It worked for me.

    Chrome Browser crashes with Windows Vista (only during initial launch):

    we have to disable SUPERFETCH service from Vista services:
    – scroll down to locate SUPERFETCH service
    – double-click mouse on SUPERFETCH
    – click APPLY
    – REBOOT the system

    It is good to delete all the files from C:\Windows\Prefetch folder regularly. We can delete the Prefetch folder itself completely, after deleting the Prefetch\Readyboot folder.

      Thank you so much for the updated trick.
