Hi Enyonam Kuma,
(A) Perhaps it is the site you are visiting which is causing the error. it could be a harmful site which is full of worms and is attacking your Browser.

(B) Have you updated your windows XP to the latest updates?
if you haven't please do so. this may be important so that your computer can function properly without hesitation on installing any other softwares as well.

If you are always receiving the error then it might be due to an error caused by an unknown form of factor within your PC. this could be a virus or an incompatible software installed earlier.

i would recommend you to uninstall google chrome using this software :
http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html
1. download the revo uninstaller free. 2. install the software like you usually would with any other. 3. run the RevoUninstallFree. 4. search for google chrome in the list in view. 5. highlight google chrome and click uninstall. 6. an option will appear, click on advanced uninstall, and remove every registry root which pops up. 7. restart your pc and fully scan your pc with an anti virus which is fully updated.
( http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ ) ( incase you dont have one refer to the site link i provided )
8. If there are no viruses download google chrome again and reinstall it.
9. if there is a virus remove it.
Google Chrome : ( http://www.google.com/support/chrome/bin/answer.py?answer=95346 )
if you have fully scanned your PC with an antivirus without any infection and your still getting an error with your chrome i would suggest you to reopen RevoUninstallFree, to remove any unnecessary programs you have installed earlier which might prevent google chrome to work properly.
(C) If all else fails, i recommend to resort on downloading other browsers.

1. Opera Browser : www.opera.com
2. Internet Explorer 9 : http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/products/ie/home?WT.mc_id=MSCOM_HP_US_F_113LMUS004274 3. Firefox : http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/
4. Safari Browser : http://www.apple.com/safari/download/
i hope this helps, Good luck !!

    It did not work but now I know it's not google chrome (as the extra registry items were found). It must be some incompatible software update.....

  • Tada Phiriyanuphong Mar 15, 2011

    If so, Uninstall the Incompatible software and try reinstalling google to the latest version.
    if the problem still persists then i would suggest using other browsers.

Google chrome will not load


A BEX error is Something to do with a Script Bug or registry error
and Roughly translated Its a Buffer "Exception" Bug

So the only thing I can advise you do is Uninstall Chrome (save your Chrome favorites) Link is on the Start menu
Then run system cleaner Reginout
Reinstall Chrome from the Google address (Install your Favorites) and touch wood all will be good again?


NOTE: When I googled this I discovered the BEX error (code) also is used with other applications and browsers.

How do i get my computer to run in normal mode again? and how do I get rid of the google chrome because this problem didn't start until i downloaded it into my computer.


Once Safe Mode comes up, click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and select a Restore Point (date and time) that is before you downloaded and installed Google Chrome.

I seriously doubt that Google Chrome is your problem. Chrome is among the top tier as far as browsers go.

I think you've got a windows system file or boot file issue.

if you were able to use chrome regularly and all of a sudden this error message is coming means that your computer can be infected. You should be doing a manual virus check on your pc
I did that online with a technician and got the virus removed

Try uninstalling again, and after uninstalling, remove the 'Chrome' folder from the application data folder.

If you are using Windows 7, the folder will be located at:
C:\Users\(USER)\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome

Substitute "(USER)" with your user id. For instance, if your user id is 'Fred' then your folder would be at:
C:\Users\Fred\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome

If you are using Windows XP, the folder will likely be located at

C:\Documents and Settings\(USER)\Application Data\

Delete only the 'Chrome' folder, and not any other such as googleearth.

If you're unsure of what you're doing, you may also rename the folder to something like 'wasChrome', that way the folder isn't available to the future Chrome installation, but is still 'there'.

Once you've gotten rid of the Chrome folder, reinstall and this may solve all your problems.
