How to Fix Google Chrome Crash Problem

Few Days Back I used to love Google Chrome but Suddenly after recent updates of Google Chrome, I noticed that every time I start Google Chrome it crashes many times.. Then I searched a lot for fixing this problem.. And I founded this solution

There are some third party softwares with which Google Chrome in not that friendly which causes it to crash several times. If you have any of the following softwares installed on your PC, please try to update, reinstall, disable or uninstall them. I was using Internet Download manager and ESET NOD 32 Antivirus 2.7 version and the moment i updated both of them, now my google chrome works great.

  • Safe Eyes Parental Control Software
  • ContentWatch
  • Microsoft Office XP Input Method Editor
  • Naomi Web Filter
  • Trusteer Rapport
  • Hide My IP
  • Venturi Firewall
  • PPLive
  • Internet Download Manager
  • ESET NOD32 Antivirus only 2.7 version
  • iS3 anti-spyware (STOPzilla)
  • NVIDIA Network Access Manager and NVIDIA nTune
  • WinMount
  • FolderSize

  1. So After doing a ton of searches to fix my google chrome which I love, I found something that worked! antimalware doctor infected my computer, I used revp uninstaller to remove it, but somehow my Google chrome didn’t work after that.

    Here’s how to fix it.

    Right click on the Chrome icon and select properties and add ” –no-sandbox” to the end of Target


    “C:\Documents and Settings\DRA\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –no-sandbox

    • The same thing happened to me. My laptop has detected a malware yesterday (Win32.CodecPack.adsm) It looks like it is in the vault right now. But google chrome keeps crashing. I have try all three solution, but the problem still continues. What can you recommend me to do?

      • I think you have to first uninstall google chrome, get a good antivirus, do a thorough scanning. After getting ur PC cleaned up, reinstall google chrome.

        And also make sure that when u start the new google chrome, you will get one more process in your Task Manager as “Googlecrashhandler.exe”

        Your issue will be solved.

  9. Hey Harsh,
    I did all these things but my google chrome still crashes. I am using latest version of google chrome (10.0.648.127). Actually, it crashes only when I play any video on Youtube, and infact, I am trying to play youtube videos on Mozilla and Opera also, but they are crashing too. I will be grateful to you, if you help to fix this problem, coz I have to take several videos from youtube for my project website.

    • Your problem is not with any of your browser crashing, rather its with the plugin u need to see or download those youtube videos.
      Check out that you are using an updated version of flash player and shockwave player.

      Hope it helps.

        It was my problem from last 6 months… and i have quick heal antivirus at the back end…
        i have formatted the system many times but as i reinstall the OS it re occurs…..

        i 9 that there is a bit small issue behind but i was not aware…. as i decide to detect malware and decide to run each n every software available… and in series i searched “microsoft security essential” a free antimalware …suite… it was the first ever soft i have installed and check….
        n i was bit lucky but MSE was unable to clean the malware…every time…so i have google the same n found…the killer tool…

        Similarly if you get irritated..just try a good free antimalware…. n
        if the issue is antivirus.. soft… i m using QH from 3 yrs…it never happen before …..but still it was unable to identify the worm… so ..may a antivirus is not worth ful…try anti malware…

        why i m writing a long because i 9 how bit it irritating if u cant surf as u wish
        As i found the solution i was searching platform to know all those need it…. i dont wont them to suffer a lot so
