Chrome not working! pureride 11/20/08 2:15 PM
Hi there!
I have a Windows vista 64 bit.  just downloaded chrome and imprted my firefox settings.
Chrome page is blank.  I load a simple page like google or yahoo and nothing loads
just a white page.  No error message no time out nor is there anything that would indicate
that it is even attempting to load.  

My internet connection is solid and my other browsers are loading and surfing fine.

Please help!

I am having the same problem. It was working perfctly fine till a day before yesterday..I dont remember exactly what I did to make it stop working.

i had the same issue and ended up uninstalling chrome yesterday as a result since it became useless.  then i got some weird window this morning and after scanning my machine it turns out it was virus infection that affected chrome settings.  after removing the virus and reinstalling chrome, it works perfectly, like it used to.  the specific tool i used was malwarebytes' anti malware, its basic version is free and it worked for me.  note: i tried uninstalling and reinstalling chrome prior to knowing about my virus problem, but that did not work.  i hope this helps!

Same issue here.  I got the "XP Defender Pro" virus.  I was able to remove it with MalwareBytes, and most everything on my computer is back to normal except for Chrome.  I've tried unistalling (with option to delete all data) and reinstalling - no success.  Chrome just sits there spinning when trying to reach a website.  Other browsers work fine.

Please help, I have used Chrome almost exclusively since it was first released!

Hey guys,

It sounds like you may have corrupt user profiles. Try following the steps in the link below and let me know if that helps.

I'd also download "Spyware Doctor with Anti-Virus" from and do a scan for viruses, to be safe.

Hi Blair,
  I tried your suggestion and it didn't seem to work for me.  When I started Chrome back up, it created a new Default profile folder, but still will not load any pages.  It just sits at an hourglass.  IE and Firefox are working fine, and I've cleaned my system, of all viruses.  I've tried the manual uninstall of Chrome using the remove.reg found here as well and no luck.

  Thanks in advance for your help.

I have the exact same problem, but the user profile fix did not work. I used Malware and it got rid of some bad things (like Antivir, a supposed malware/trojan). But still Chrome is not working! I wish I can get this fixed, I love chrome.

If not, I will most likely format my drive, it needs a cleaning anyways after a few years.... :)
Re: Chrome not working! Blair (Googler) 5/6/10 10:21 AM
Hey guys,

There are a few things that may be causing this. Try the following and let me know if anything helps:

1. Temporarily disable your firewall and try running Chrome. It's possible your firewall is incorrectly blocking Chrome. If disabling helps, see if you can change your firewall's settings to accept Chrome.

2. Temporarily disable your antivirus and try running Chrome. (See explanation for firewall, above.)

3. Try updating your antivirus software and scanning again. If your antivirus is not up to date, it may not be able to detect some malware.

4. Try doing a scan with a different kind of antivirus software, for example Prevx or Spyware Doctor:

5. Try disabling any extensions that relate to proxies: sometimes these can prevent Chrome from loading correctly.

Let me know if this helps!
Re: Chrome not working! gwilson 5/6/10 11:35 AM
Some other possibilities to try:

- Check that your proxy settings are correct.  Chrome uses different proxy settings than Firefox.  You can verify them by going to Wrench menu -> "Under the Hood" -> "Change Proxy Settings" -> "LAN Settings"

- Disable IPV6. Per darthandroid's suggestion in
1. Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center -> Change adapter settings
2. Right click on network adapter -> Properties
3. Uncheck "Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)"
4. Click Ok
Please let us know if any of these worked for you!

It is a TDSS Rootkit

My CDROM.SYS was infected - run the utility posted here at (yours may be a different file, im just saying, it was a random file that was infected)


someone posted this link, and it worked first try, after a restart (which it asked me, very politely, if i wanted to do)
Re: Chrome not working! marcus.ho 5/23/10 1:13 PM
I have the same problem and it seems to only happen when i am logged onto my default user.  chrome just shows "this webpage is not available"  but i am writing this comment right now using firefox which still works.  

when i log onto administrator using safe mode then chrome works perfectly..

ran TDSSKiller by kaspersky as well as NormanTDSSCleaner (this one i downloaded from their website does not work, just says "The program is outdated and will not run"  TDSSKiller didn't find any infected rootkits..?
Re: Chrome not working! sam666 5/27/10 3:33 PM
hi.  i've had this problem for a while now on my windows xp.  it worked for a while and then it stopped and i had the same not-loading-any-pages problem.  i tried malwarebytes which removed some viruses, but chrome continued not working and i had to switch to firefox.

today i learned that i had "google redirect virus" and used this to fix it:

i reinstalled chrome and now it finally works again.

i hope this helps at least some of you.
Re: Chrome not working! Nithi86 8/28/10 5:04 AM
I to had the same problem when i browsed i find a solution and my chrome works fine

here is the solution 

1.Right click the shortcut of Google Chrome and click the Properties

2.In Target test field it will be something like this( "C:\Documents and Settings\XXXX\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe""  )

3.just add these to that test "-no-sandbox" its look like this ("C:\Documents and Settings\Nattu\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" -no-sandbox)

---- Great call on the no sandbox. Although that -no-sandbox addendum didn't work were able to check an app setting that was showing "never run in sandbox" beautifully.

out of all the solutions in this thread, i found that only this solution worked for me.....a big THANK YOU for the user 'drcorrell' who posted this ^_^  ::::
Re: Chrome not working! themacmeister 10/16/10 2:27 AM
I had the identical problem - Chrome not running after install, or displaying a single page (although IE and Firefox still worked). Turns out I had the TDL3 rootkit. Main symptom was random redirects from Google search in Firefox. (xxxxxxxxxx.xxxx/go.php?xxxxx)

I found the rootkit with HitMan Pro 3.5 (30 day free trial)
I removed the rootkit with RegRun Reanimator (free) and RegRun CD (AUS$16)

Chrome working perfectly again :-D
