Whoa! Google Chrome has crashed

less than 1 minute read,

ALL my chrome browser windows just now closed…  I thought Google Chrome was immune to crashes…. apparently not.  Guess that “process isolation” feature stuff was pure marketing… :rage:






Having used Chrome for a couple of weeks without any problems I got this message on Friday. Since then I’ve been unable to use Chrome as it crashes with the same error message after about 30 seconds.

Having searched high and low for a solution I found this one late last night and (fingers crossed) it seems to have solved the problem…

If Google Chrome won’t open or stay open, try these troubleshooting steps first:
Rename your ‘Default’ folder to ‘Backup’
You can find the ‘Default’ folder in the following locations:

Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\ Windows Vista: \Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data<br />
Move the ‘Backup’ folder
If Google Chrome continues to crash, move your newly renamed ‘Backup’
folder from the ‘User Data’ directory up one level to the ‘Chrome’


This did not work for me. I downloaded firefox shortly after, via. I. E. 9. It also stopped working, as well as I.E. eventually. I got I.E. working again by clearing the system cache, but I would really like the other ones to work, as I like them much better that I.E.
