20 Most Recent Google Chrome Questions & Answers


You need to check out all these:
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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:
SFC.EXE /SCANNOW
- Windows will scan your computer for problems with system files and fix any problems it finds.
6. Hardware issues
- It can also cause Chrome crashes. You may want to test your computer's RAM and ensure it isn't faulty.

ยท If still problem not solve, maybe you should try these simple steps:
1. Try restarting your computer first. It could be that the computer has just encountered a slight glitch on your system, which is causing things to not work properly.
2. Remove and Re-install the Google Chrome application. Doing this will allow your computer to read the files a lot better and faster, and also repair any damaged or corrupt files that have been causing the issue. To remove the Google Chrome application, first insure that you have another browser, such as IE or Firefox, click "Start, Control Panel, Add / Remove Programs," locate "Google Chrome" click UNINSTALL next to it. When the application loads, select "REMOVE" (not repair). Follow the uninstall process, and restart your PC. Problems uninstalling or re-installing Chrome indicate mal- or spy-ware, which must be dealt with.
3. Remove any extensions that you have on Google Chrome. Although they are a great 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.
4. Disable plug-ins. Chrome can get bogged down with plugins that you aren't using, also. Type about: plugins into Chrome; it will redirect to chrome://plugins. Disable any that you aren't currently using.
Hopefully your Google Chrome crash problems are gone. Hope it works. Sharing is always caring.

There are other sources to view movies. GenVideos is only one in a sea of thousands of free viewing sites. Their servers are up but stream at a ridiculously low rate. The three movies I clicked on.. my media content download extension (GetThemAll Video Downloader) reported the 400M file would take 6 hours to download and I have a 250 Mb/s cable connection, which means they're streaming at less than 20 b/s.

Try one of these instead. The first has 720/1080 quality videos but they take longer to load, while the 2nd load instantly but mainly because they have 320/480 quality only:

Here is why I receive this error:
When I had installed Google Chrome, I chose "not to participate to make our software experience better." I also do not use Google as my start page. What is happening is that the browser "phones home" against your choice and against your will, thus the error code. I have my firewall to block google.com and that is why I get this error, no matter what website I go to. Uninstall it and use Firefox, until Google respects your privacy.

Oh, and try it and you will see this is the truth. Block google.com with your firewall and go to any website....you will not be able to use Google Chrome and you get that error - it collects your personnel info. I had to use Firefox to post this. If you are comfortable with google tracking your web activity, by all means, use it.
