Google chrome keeps crashing not sure why
You need to check out all these:
Check for Conflicting Software:
Some third-party software can
cause Google Chrome to crash. When this happens, you'll see the message "Whoa!
Google Chrome has crashed. It's possible that you have malware that can
cause Google Chrome to crash.
Google Chrome has a hidden page
that will tell you if any software on your system is known to conflict with
Google Chrome. To access it, type chrome://conflicts into Chrome's address bar
and press Enter.
You can try to fix these
crashes by updating, disabling, or uninstalling any conflicting third-party
software listed in "about:conflicts" on your computer. Also, take a
look at Google Chrome's known issues for specific solutions to resolve crashes
caused by some software.
Scan for Malware
This includes malware and
network-related software that interferes with Google Chrome. Malware can also
interfere with Google Chrome and cause it to crash.
You can try using Malwarebytes,
or other anti-virus software to scan for and remove malware or you can also try
searching the web for information related to any conflicting modules listed on
the chrome://conflicts page (Windows only), to see if there are other steps you
can take to remove malware.
Many crashes are caused by
malware. If you're experiencing frequent crashes, try scanning your computer
with antivirus software.
Solve Flash Crashes
We have found that the Flash
plugin Chrome includes can cause it to crash in some cases. If you are seeing
regular Shockwave Flash crashes, you may want to try disabling the internal
Flash plugin and using the standard Flash plugin in Google Chrome.
Switch to a New Profile
Chrome crashes may be caused by
a corrupted profile. You can test this by creating a new profile from Chrome's
Settings screen. Open the Settings page from Chrome's menu and click Add new
user under Users.
Change to the new profile after
creating it and see if the crashes continue to occur. You can sign into Chrome
with your Google account to sync the data from your old profile. However,
Google recommends you don't copy any files from the old profile folder by hand
- they may be corrupted and causing the problem.
5. Fix System File Problems
Google recommends running the
SFC.EXE /SCANNOW program to check for - and fix - problems with protected
system files on your Windows system if you are encountering crashes. To do
this, locate the Command Prompt in your Start menu (press the Windows key and
type Command Prompt), right-click it, and select Run as Administrator.
Type the following command in
the Command Prompt window and press Enter:
Windows will scan your computer
for problems with system files and fix any problems it finds.
It can also cause Chrome
crashes. You may want to test your computer's RAM and ensure it isn't faulty.

way to personalize your Internet browsing experience, they are not so good for
speed and functionality, as many can cause the application to crash. To remove
any extensions follow these steps: Open up Google Chrome. In the address bar
type chrome: //extensions. Click Uninstall, or Click Disable if you think you
may use the add-on in the future. Restart your browser.
