Chrome has stopped working, completely

Chrome has stopped working, completely kentfx 1/2/10 8:41 AM
Suddenly, in the middle of the afternoon today, Chrome simply stopped working.  When I click on it I get the message, "Google chrome has stopped working".  Period.  This has gone on for hours.  I can load pages in Firefox, but Chrome is dead.  Dead dead dead.  An hour ago I UNINSTALLED it, then downloaded it again and re-installed it.

Nothing.  Nada.  "Google chrome has stopped working."

What in the WORLD is going on?  Is there some huge virus that has attacked the program???
Re: Chrome has stopped working, completely kentfx 1/2/10 8:58 AM
Actually, now the message that's coming up (no matter what address I'm trying to call up) is,

"This webpage is not available.
"The webpage at [http://mail.google.com/mail/] might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address."

It looks like it's not connecting to the internet (I think).  Firefox and IE continue working just fine.  

I've reinstalled the program, and also I've rebooted four times.  Nothing.

when you uninstalled it did you restart your computer? this resets default settings and makes reinstalling work better.
Re: Chrome has stopped working, completely kentfx 1/2/10 6:23 PM
To Dwight Stegall:  Yes, I restarted the computer after uninstalling Chrome.  I uninstalled Chrome a second time using Revo Uninstaller, which is good at cleaning out references to a program in the registry -- then rebooted, and again installed Chrome.  Nothing.

BUT -- I just discovered that IE also does not work on my machine!  It gives the same basic message that Chrome gives.  Also Maxthon, which uses the IE engine, doesn't work.  The only browser (that I have) that works is Firefox, which I guess is my new browser.  

On my laptop (which uses the same internet connection as the big machine), Chrome continues to work fine.

ANY HELP OUT THERE?  SUGGESTIONS?...

SOLUTION FOUND!

It's bizarre, but it works.  I found it on the KIOSKEA.NET forum, and am posting it for anyone else who has the same problem.  Apparently Chrome is somehow connected to Internet Explorer --

_______________

go to internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options > ConnectionsTab
on this screen click to "LAN Settings" at the bottom
at new window Check "Automatically detect settings"
and
uncheck the "Use a proxy server bla bla bla"

_______________

That's it.  Now Chrome works again!

You're a genius! I was having the exact same problem, and that fixed it in under a minute.
Re: Chrome has stopped working, completely tonywonderfire 1/27/10 11:41 AM
Didn't work for me, any update on this?
Anything official from Google? ("Use a proxy server" etc wasn't checked anyway).
According to the various forums, we're a few amongst many with this issue!

PS Yes, I tried a re-start!

The bad thing here is, Chrome is using IE. It uses it for a lot of settings

   So if you have any problems with IE, then Chrome will inherit the same problems

   it is the same problem I have been having with Yahoo Messenger and the Yahoo site,
   Yahoo uses IE, so when you have Chrome running you have all the same problems

   Uninstall Chrome

   Install Firefox
Re: Chrome has stopped working, completely kentfx 2/21/10 4:30 AM
Did you look a few lines above, to "SOLUTION FOUND!", and try that little sequence of instructions?  Did you try it more than once? (the changes you make in I-Explorer don't always "take" the first time... what a piece of engineering.)
Re: Chrome has stopped working, completely tonywonderfire 2/21/10 12:05 PM
Yep (of course) tried all the advice I could find, anywhere!

Weird thing is, I didn't try Firefox but I did download the latest version of Opera and got the same thing.

I can't even login to Gmail now from IE8, but I can in iGoogle or in any other of my Google accounts.

Now, I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but if I was MSoft and looking at my dwindling browser market share, in my next IE8 update maybe I'd ........ !!!!
Re: Chrome has stopped working, completely kentfx 2/21/10 1:12 PM
Right, it's pointless being a "conspiracy theorist".  Are you old enough to remember DRDOS?
Re: Chrome has stopped working, completely tonywonderfire 2/21/10 3:09 PM
Ha! I'm old enough to remember that my first 'computer' was a Commodore 64 running that early spreadsheet (and so old that I can't remember the brand - VisiCalc?)!

My next 'PC' was an Apricot Xi and then a Xen running the first Windows OS and Pagemaker - and on and on and on ......

My only claim to fame was when I had the first dual-processor (2 x 100ghz!) Intergraph running pro/Engineer in the UK in the mid-90's.

You?
Re: Chrome has stopped working, completely kentfx 2/21/10 8:16 PM
Oh, no no, I'm just a tiny young sprite.  Don't know about ANY of those things!
Re: Chrome has stopped working, completely tonywonderfire 2/22/10 12:11 AM
And you know about DR-DOS?

It didn't work for me unfortunately.

However, I recently received this email from AVG -

"Thank you for your email.

Please be informed that this issue is caused by the AVG latest program update (build 787) and the fix for this is being prepared and will be released soon.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

So it seems it's an AVG-related  problem for me at least - and I'm still waiting!
Re: Chrome has stopped working, completely aotasoft 3/22/10 4:59 AM
I using AVG and Chrome,I also like that. AVG is can cause problems. What are ways to solve this problem
Re: Chrome has stopped working, completely tonywonderfire 3/22/10 5:59 AM
I had this repsonse from AVG last evening - and it works!

"Kindly be informed that from the information provided, you have configured Google Chrome and Opera to only "Allow for safe" communication. The correct setting is to choose "Allow for all" instead therefore kindly perform the following to rectify this issue:

- Open AVG User Interface.
- Click on "Tools" menu, select "Firewall Settings".
- Kindly ensure you select your profile which is "Small home or office network"
- Please expand this profile, and select "Application" item.
- On the right panel, please find "Google Chrome", click on "Allow for safe", a drop down menu will be popped up.
- Please choose "Allow for all".
- Now, please find "Opera", click on "Allow for safe", a drop down menu will be popped up.
- Please choose "Allow for all".
- Click on "OK" button."

Hope it works for you!

But, I dont have AVG, and I tried to settle the options of LAN settings, dont work...
Any options?
Re: Chrome has stopped working, completely Badbatch78 3/22/11 2:02 AM
Okay, tried all the options above and nothing worked til I saw the AVG solution. I don't use AVG but I do use McAfee (I know, don't start). For some inexplicable reason it had Program Access for Chrome as blocked. Unblocked it and now it's fine. Check your Firewall settings, people.
