Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... all_chromed_out 3/4/10 7:14 AM
Windows XP Professional - Service Pack 3 - all uptodate
Google Chrome 4.1.249.1021 unknown (40167)
OfficeScan Antivirus installed

On 1st March 2010 I opted to install Google Chrome. It worked great straight after installation but after restarting my laptop it failed to load any pages. Chrome would attempt to load a page and then give a popup with a message similar to "Pages have become unresponsive" and give the option to Wait or Kill Pages.

As I only installed Chrome a few days ago from the official Google website I assume it was the latest version release.

I have now installed the latest Beta release "4.1.249.1021 unknown (40167)". This also works on first installation but following a restart no pages will load, Chrome perpetualy shows the "C Loading..." graphic at the top of the tab page.

I would like nothing more than to move away from Internet Explorer but am finding Chrome a real pain straight out of the box.

Any help appreciated.

Try disabling java scripts in chrome. That will fix the hanging up part, but you will be left with no java. I havent tried installing a 3rd party java app and run that with chromes java script dasabled.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... all_chromed_out 3/5/10 1:44 AM
I have disable java scripts under "Options > Under The Bonnet > Privacy Content Settings > JavaScript"
Still have the same problem.
Like I said Chrome always works on re-installation but then after a restart it cannot display any web page.

I am having the same problem exactly. Each page starts to load and then I get a message to kill tab or wait, telling me that it has become unresponsive. I can't even load about:memory from the 'stats for nerds' link in task manager! I will try the Java fix and see if that works.

Yeah that does the trick. Not exactly ideal though.

Can someone please answer this questions? I just keep reading them over and over again.. No answers!
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... all_chromed_out 3/5/10 6:09 AM
I am not having much joy getting a fix for this problem. It is a problem I have seen reported multiple times across the net but with no answers.

I am going to try Dev Chrome to if that is any better.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... newyorksabre 3/5/10 8:00 AM
Hi, it is most likely any third party software you may have. The problems (all with the same slow page loading problems) have for the most part been blamed on either AV software, Download Managers, Spyware Removers, etc. The one thing you have to do before you give up is make sure you shut all other programs down when running chrome. Try running chrome in "safe mode" if you have a lot of silent programs running in the background. Try these steps first as it probably is some conflict between your already installed programs.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... all_chromed_out 3/6/10 2:32 PM
Hi newyorksabre,
Your answer makes a lot of sense, I will try running chrome in safe mode and see what happens. Can I just say that I have now upgraded to Dev Chrome 5.0.342.1 but still have the same problem.

Safe mode next.

Do did anyone find a solution to fix this Problem ? because I have the same problem...
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... FSinister 3/7/10 5:13 AM
I don't think its third party software. I'm not running any other programs that I'm aware of. The only things running are various system processes...? Firefox and opera work fine...

Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... Avinuity 3/19/10 9:13 AM
I'm having this and disabled all AVG / firewalls / kernel protection systems. Tried just about everything including reinstalling, deleting all files, reg files, etc.

This seems unfixable and I don't want to reformat for Chrome. Might try open source version http://www.chromium.org/ which Google doesn't supposedly sniff all your data. Either way I tried everything in the endless threads about this and still can't get anything to work. So I'm forced to basically use FireFox... oh well good bye speed.

System: Windows 7 Pro, Dell Studio XPS Laptop, Comodo / A-Squared anti-malware (which worked fine until today since chrome release)
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... all_chromed_out 4/1/10 7:33 AM
Hi Everyone,
Good news Google Chrome is finally working for me! Not sure what I did to resolve the issue but I have a feeling it started working after I ran a full system scan using Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.44 free version.

In my case I ran the full scan which can take several hours to complete. There is a quick scan option but I opted for the full. Malawarebytes found and removed several pieces of malware, this involved removing all traces from the registry which it does automatically for you.

I am running Google Chrome 5.0.360.4 dev.

Hope you all get it sorted soon.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... sonypoozhikunnel 4/19/10 1:20 PM
Right click on the Chrome icon and select properties and add " --no-sandbox" to the end of Target

Note: there must be a space between the final apostrophy and the two dashes

PS. My problem started when my PC (WinXP) was infected by Trojan.FakeAV
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... BanjoBoy 4/24/10 3:05 PM
Chrome was running fine on my XP system until I contracted a malware fraudulent anti-virus program called "XP Smart Security".  For details on the virus and steps for removal go to  myantispyware.com.  The malware rewrites the Windows registry so that attempts to run any .exe file instead initiate an application ave.exe that generates pop-up windows with fake virus scanning messages.   I rolled back the system to an earlier restore point and this prevented the virus from running, but apparently something the virus modified in the registry or elsewhere resulted in Chrome hanging with the "unresponsive pages" message.  Removing and reinstalling Chrome several times did not solve the problem.  With some trepidation I downloaded the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.45 free version (after checking to see that it had a clean bill of health in CNET reviews) and ran it.  The utility found 249 infected objects (mostly Adware related and despite the fact that I've been running McAfee with up to date DAT files), and fixed all problems.  However, no joy.  Both the stable version of Chrome 4.1.249.1045  and the beta version 5.0.342.9 still hang up with the "unresponsive pages" message.
After a man-day tracking down info on the virus and trying different fixes, and waiting for the full scan to complete, the system seems to be stable.  I hope there is an especially warm place in hell reserved for authors of malware.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... BanjoBoy 4/24/10 3:34 PM
sonypoozhikunnel's suggestion of appending " --no-sandbox" seems to fix the problem.  Inquiring minds want to know why this works
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... Harvey100 4/25/10 8:50 AM
Adding the --no-sandbox thingy did the trick.
Didn't believe it so I took it off and tried again.
It's true, you the man. Thanks
Like BanjoeBoy I am curious why this works.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... all_chromed_out 4/25/10 10:43 AM
A few people have found that using --no-sandbox helps but this IS NOT RECOMMENDED as a permanent fix. Here are some quotes from other forums warning of the dangers of using the --no-sandbox option for long periods:

"setting no-sandbox mode sound like very bad ideas to me -- these settings disable the security features which are supposed to make Chrome safer than other browsers."

"I have to reiterate that we advise that you do not run Google Chrome with the --no-sandbox command line."

"Please only test this temporarily as running Google Chrome with no sandbox decreases the security measures we work hard to protect you with"

"the -no-sandbox is a workaround. You do not want to permanently run Chrome with is command line. It leaves you without virus protection."

"we advise that you do not run Google Chrome with the --no-sandbox command line because it makes your browser more vulnerable to security issues. Please remove the command line."

"I have to reiterate that we advise that you do not run Google Chrome with the --no-sandbox command line."

So use it at your own risk with the above in mind, personally I would not use it as it leaves you open to attack from virus and malware.

OK like many on here I have the same problem

Windows 7
Chrome 5.0.375.3
AVG 9.0.814

I tried all these things and the only 2 ways I have had chrome working is in safe mode with networking or the no sandbox method.
I tried also running it in the msconfig diagnostic startup which didn't work.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... Avinuity 4/27/10 11:49 AM
No sandbox worked, thanks a ton! I just sandboxed the application at all times using another sandbox program in hopes it will help lol.

I m facing the same problem too.
I did a virus scan but no malicious things or any virus was detected. But still my chrome doesn't load.

Do we have any other solution than --no-sandbox?

Thanks in advance.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... thood341 5/6/10 6:17 AM
I have had this problem for months now - found the "no sandbox" resolution.  Now with a resent update to Chrome (5.0.375.29 beta) - I now get an annoying warning that I am running in the "no sandbox" mode.  I still have not found a resolution to the problem.  I am running WinXP SP3 (5.1.2600)  w/ all updates / Dell E6400.  This problem was happening on my Dell D610 also - that I recently upgraded from.  The Chrome install was a new install.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... abasso78 5/10/10 5:26 AM
The --no-sandbox trick does not work here (Linux Kubuntu Lucid and latest Chrome).
This issue seems to be related to not well supported pluging loaded by Chrome. I managed to solve it by removing a the mediaplayer plugin for gecko browsers (gecko-mediaplayer). For Ubuntu users, just type:

   sudo apt-get --purge remove gecko-mediaplayer

and everything will work again in chrome.

In general, check for plugins installed in /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins and temporarely disable one at time (rename or move them in a temporary dir) since you Chrome starts to work again.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... a.wk.l 5/11/10 6:14 PM
I tried the --no-sandbox trick, and it helped! Well you just have to make sure there's a space. But then I read all_chromed_out's comment, and I deleted the --no-sandbox thing, but google chrome still worked. So now i'm just crossing my fingers that it'll keep working. Thanks a bunch

Hi,

I have a Mac and don't know how some of these suggestions translate to my computer. I'm having the same Google Chrome/kill pages/unresponsive issue. Any tips? The computer is also fairly new, and I've still barely installed anything. Therefore, I don't think uninstalling other programs will really help.

Thanks!
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... all_chromed_out 5/12/10 9:10 AM
Hi veryclaire,
You could try disabling one plugin at a time to see if that helps, as suggested above by omino78. In Google Chrome press the Spanner icon at the top left, click Options, Under the Bonnet, Content settings..., Plug-ins, Disable individual plug-ins...

Disable one plug-in, close down and relaunch Chrome to see if it works. Do this with each plug-in and if your lucky you may find the plug-in that is causing the problem.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... a.wk.l 5/18/10 5:06 PM
Hi again, unfortunately the sandbox trick doesn't work for me anymore :( and i'm hoping something else could work. So how do you disable plugins..?
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... cytoxyn 5/20/10 9:35 AM
Hey guys I found another option that worked for me, where i could remove the  --no-sandbox and run normally. after watching Cnet to the rescue they mentioned a program call autoruns. (http://live.sysinternals.com/autoruns.exe) I ran the program which is a beefed up msconfig program, and after removing anything that I was absolutely was microsoft or a program i know to be ok I unchecked the rest, removed the --no-sandbox and it works great. Actually it seems faster. so there you go and good luck.

Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... widucrider 6/5/10 9:06 AM
I am having the same problem as "all_chromed_out". After a restart all pages with 3rd party content hang. If you go to a page like the www.google.com/news or anything from craigslist.org i.e. pages that have no 3rd party content these pages will load correctly. In my case it has something to do with the Flash plugin NPSWF32.dll. I found that if you disable this plugin all pages will load again. The only problem is that if you have a page with a Flash component you'll see the message that you need to install the Flash plugin to see that content. So if seems that on restart something having to do with that plugin blocks pages with 3rd party content (and not just Flash content) from successfully loading.

For those people who can get Chrome running again by doing a uninstall/reinstall if you could try disabling the Flash plugin after restarting (and before reinstalling Chrome) and see if you experience the same phenomenon as I have it would be helpful at least to report this information to Google engineers for a possible solution. You can get to the plugin list page by typing "about:plugins". Look for the "Shockwave Flash" entry and click "Disable".

By the way, I'm running: Google Chrome version : 5.0.375.55 beta
Operating System: Windows Vista 32 bit (Home Premium) - Service pack 2

Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... Rebbe 6/10/10 6:06 PM
I received this from John and it really worked !!  Try it !

"I was able to solve it via removing the tdss rootkit. This nasty bugger evaded avs,avast, microtrend, malwarebytes, spywaredoctor, and a few more I can't remember.

The big tip off was when I tried a full antivirus scan, avast crashed with a ugigenskin error. forums say to goto avast.ini file and set something to zero I forget. Doesn't work

http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/solutions?qid=208280684  <- my solution

my atapi.sys was infected.


1. download tdsskiller.exe
2. reboot system and hit the F5/F8 key to get safe mode boot choices
3. after windows with command prompt is loaded run tdsskiller.
4. reboot and check again
5. check if chrome works

Also, running tdsskiller.exe while windows is booted normally will detect the rootkit, but unable to remove it.

It's probably wise to check everything you have passworded.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... andriyp 6/11/10 11:59 PM
The suggestion above helped. (safe mode reboot was not needed; the fix was completed upon next reboot).

I'm still puzzled as to how I got the bug; I haven't had a virus for quite some time, using only Firefox.
Chrome was installed a few days ago. Thus, I'm not sure if it's just a coincidence, or if Chrome contains some exploit.

I have had the same problem, until yesterday. I downloaded and ran a malware program called TDSSKiller, it found a file which it reported was infected with something called TDSS rootkit.

File "C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\agp440.sys" infected by TDSS rootkit ... 23:47:56:687 4116

It was able to fix the infection and after that Chrome runs without problem.

the TDSSKiller.exe is available from Kaspersky Lab.

I search the internet "high & low" and was NOT able to find this information. So I hope that posting this will maybe help some of the others who are experiencing the same problem.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... GE Case 7/7/10 9:34 PM
TDSS ROCKS!! Running XT had AV Security Suite Malware which Spy Doctor cured, but Chrome ruined.  Ran full scans by Spy Doctor and McAfee which found DNSChanger. but Uninstalling Chrome and Re-installing three times did not work.  TDSSKiller found C:\winnt\system32\drivers\compbatt.sys infected by TDSS rootkit--which slipped by both Spy Dr and McAfee....Thanks to all for that valuable advice.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... a.wk.l 7/14/10 1:46 AM
I downloaded TDSS and Google Chrome wasn't unresponsive anymore! :D Unfortunately, I still couldn't connect through and there was still an error on the page. But I fixed this by launching Internet Explorer (which also didn't work), click on Tools, then Internet Options, unchecked "Use a proxy server for your LAN" and checked "Automatically detect settings." Tada! Both Chrome and IE worked. It may seem obvious, but I'm stuck on why this actually worked. Can someone help?

Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... alexdog95 9/18/10 8:08 PM
After trying every known work around, test and scan, the only way I can get Chrome to work is to use the -no-sandbox in the target line. Since it is recommended to not run Chrome with sandbox disabled, I finally downloaded Sandboxie and run Chrome inside this sandbox. A little bit of a pain as can't get it to start just by clicking on start web browser in the sandbox, because it attempts to start from normal exe and hangs. You can either open Sandboxie and click on "Run Any Program" and paste whatever your target line is including the -no-sandbox; in Sandboxie you can click on "Run from Start Menu" and click on Chrome; or I think the easiest way is to open Sandboxie and drag the Chrome icon into Sandboxie. If you use the last method you will be prompted whether to run Chrome in the sandbox or outside. You will just have to move any downloads out of the sandbox if you use this method. For the present this is the only safe method that I have found to run Chrome by using the -no-sandbox target line.
If anyone has any improvement on this method or if my thought process is not valid, any suggestions will be welcomed.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... cadamy 10/3/10 5:57 AM
I finally paid Justanswer.com to solve this for me.  They asked me to scan for viruses (I didn't have any).  Then gave the following instructions:


please disable the windows presentation foundation plugin.........

It is not required......

After that follow the steps below -:

please download the Flash Player Uninstaller program using the following link:
http://tinyurl.com/5cnmwt

.Download completed ;Now run it to remove the existing version of Flash Player from your system.
After that, reinstall Flash Player by following this link:

Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... lander1 3/16/11 9:35 PM
hi I had unresponsive browser issues with chrome and they advised to rename the default folder I found this helped a lot although it doesnt move your bookmarks and it creates another default folder when you begin to use chrome.

here's how according to chrome I did find though that I did have to go through the path to get to the folder ie user data folder etc and you do have to tell windows in folder options to show hidden folders.

instructions

Troubleshooting: Create a new browser user profile Share Comment
If your browser user profile is corrupted, you can create a new user profile to replace the broken one:

Exit Google Chrome completely.
Go to the Start menu > Run.
Enter one of the following directories in the text field, then press OK.
Windows

Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\
Windows Vista and Windows 7: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\
Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default

Linux: ~/.config/google-chrome/Default

Locate the folder called "Default" in the directory window that opens and rename it as "Backup default."
Try opening Google Chrome again. A new "Default" folder is automatically created as you start using the browser. You can transfer your old browser information to your new user profile; however, we recommend against doing so since a part of your old profile was corrupt. You can transfer your old bookmarks to your new user profile by copying the "Bookmarks.bak" file from the "Backup default" folder to your new "Default" folder.


hope this helps

it appears i fixed my problem by 1) uninstalling chrome, then 2) running "little registry cleaner," which revealed a bad registry link caused by real player. 3) so i uninstalled real player, 4) and replaced it with "real alternative," 5) and re-ran the registry cleaner, which then resulted in a clean registry. 6) then i downloaded and re-installed chrome. seems to be working ok now. and my whole computer is running faster.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... SickOfSAFEmode 6/27/11 6:31 AM
I don't have time to do all this stuff.  Sandbox kills security.  Kill java so now pages won't work properly.  Play around with plugins.  Run this program.  That program.  Go get this, do that.  I really want to waste two days of my life "guessing" at what MIGHT work for MY particular computer, ya think?

Where is the OPTION button to STOP the stupid error msg?  I want it to ALWAYS wait.

Sometimes I have a lot of pages open at the same time so the computer runs slowly.  That's my choice.  I do research and need lots open.  And I don't need to be hassled.  Just get ON with it, load the pages and shut up!  How do I STOP it?  Other browsers don't talk about it, they just keep loading until eventually the pages load.

We need a Google developer to answer my second paragraph.

P.S.  Why does the "edit" button on THIS page NOT allow editing, only deleting???  Had to copy/paste to make changes, get two up there, then delete the first..  Annoying.

@SickOfSAFEmode you're so right! Neither I want to go through downloads and scans...
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... SickOfSAFEmode 7/14/11 3:47 PM
Now I am really angry!  That stupid box "wait" or "kill pages" came up again, and I had a whole bunch of pages open that I NEEDED.  So I clicked the X in the corner to get it outta my face!  It closed EVERYTHING and when I restarted Chrome, all I got was my home page instead of all the opened pages like usual when there is an abrupt, non-normal shutting down of Chrome.

So now I have to PAINFULLY SLOWLY go through the History!!!  to find those pages I NEED!  The History is terrible.  Installed an extension to make it better, but it's still terribly slow.  For me, this is a DISASTER!  How can I find those pages again without spending the rest of the day -- and night????  All because of that stupid "kill pages" crap NO ONE NEEDS.  Just keep loading and SHUT UP about it.  It pops up VERY FAST, not giving pages much time at all.  Kill pages?  I'd like to kill IT.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... smsavino 8/10/11 9:39 AM
I solved this problem yesterday by downloading the latest version of Chrome (even if that's what you're  already using), uninstalling my current Chrome program and then reinstalling using the freshly downloaded version.

It's back to being fast with no page unresponsive messages. I don't know why that worked, but I'll take it.

I have the problem and I am rather not using the no-sandbox mode to risk my computer, I really hope Google can release a fix to the super annoying problem immediately
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... mmdaas 9/9/11 1:19 PM
I just solved this for myself, and considering I know it's a big issue I thought it might be nice to share.

Close out chrome. Go to C:\Program Files\Google\CrashReports. Delete the file(s) in the folder. I have no idea why I thought of it, or why it worked. When I restarted the browser there was no hanging, no kill pages popup, and chrome decreased it's CPU usage by about 50%. Can't guarentee it works for everyone, but it's worth a try if you don't want to --no sandbox.

Hi Everyone,

This was giving my problems as well.

I noticed that the little chrome symbol was in my bottom right task bar.
I right click and disabled 'chrome running in the background'
I've only just done it and im back on chrome writing this message. Hope this helps someone else.

PS: I'm running windows vista

Cheers

Hi folks,

We do not recommend that you run Chrome without sandbox (" --no-sandbox"), as it makes the browser liable to exploits and malware attacks. Please refer to Ref[1] below to learn more about the added security that Chrome offers through sandboxing.

If you are still experiencing unresponsiveness or hangs when a page is loading, can you try the following:
1. Make sure Chrome is updated. Ref[2]. 
If you would like to find out what is the latest version of Chrome for the channel that you are on, you can visit/subscribe to the Google Chrome Releases Blog (http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/)
2. Clear your cache and cookies. Ref[3]

If the above steps do not help, please let me know:
1. Your operating system, and Chrome version
2. Websites that consistently cause Chrome to be unresponsive for you. Any specific steps that will cause it to happen.

Hi Sie,
Nice to see a Google employee taking an interest in this thread :O)
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... hikercoast 10/18/11 9:54 AM
For         Sie_Deen, Google Employee:

Thank you for your comments.  However, none of this is required with Apple's Safari browser, so why should we have to go through this with Chrome?  It makes Chrome an inferior browser.  Also, the notion that it is faster is nonsense.  "Page(s) unresponsive" defeats this every day.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... all_chromed_out 10/19/11 4:42 AM
@ hikercoast,
I have not used the Safari browser but personally I find Chrome much faster than Internet Explorer. A breath of fresh air. I also find it cleaner, less cluttered, more streamlined and geared for pure browsing.

It is a shame people are (still) having to "go through this" to get this better experience.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... Nexus Tiko 11/3/11 10:45 AM
I have had this issue for a few days, whenever I open Chrome it would give me the "Page(s) unresponsive" error for the start page and would do the same for any page I tried to open.  I tried every solution I found online with no hope, but I couldn't give up, I can't use any other browser.  Finally today it hit me, I had installed "Rapport" (a security software suggested by BofA) a long while ago and totally forgot about it since then.  Anyway, I tried disabling it and that did it, Chrome is working perfectly fine.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... lava@midgard 11/4/11 8:40 AM
Hello Sie_Deen,


sorry to discourage you but a lot of my friends are currently experiencing more and more problems with Chrome.
Shortly: on different systems they have a Chrome becoming a huge memory hog which can't give a responce.

I personally use Arch Linux and Chromium which is just the same as Chrome I beleave (of course without some features, but though). This is clean Chromium.

And I'm experiencing more and more troubles using it through latest several months. I am currently even have to swtich to Firefox because:
1) If I'm trynig to open several pages on Reddit, for example, I have all of tham hang and asked to be killed for a long time;
2) A lot of other sites could require the same behavior. It's just enough to open above 6 pages of a middle complexity;
3) Currently I even can't write this post through the Chromium because even if I'm trying to open the singl page here and login to my Google account, the login page couldn't be processed and hangs too! It's just something ridiculous. Do you even have testers?


1. I use the latest stable version;
2. I have cleaned cookies and cache a lot of times. I also have removed Chromium and make a clean install several times, but...
3. While the Chromium is "hanging out", I can see that my processor is awaiting for hard drive. I know, my hard drive is not of the latest model but no any other application use it in such a horrible way that `vmstat` gives 'cpu.wa' over 90 for minutes;
4. I also have a suspection that JavaScript engine could be involved in some way.

To be honest, I have tried today to switch to the latest development build (it's currently 17.0.933.0) and it works much better. Without hangs and so on. Very hopeful.

I've been trying to get around the issue for weeks with no luck. Today I tried renaming the chrome default file to default_old forcing chrome to start fresh, as suggested by Lander1 above. All seem good. Then I synced and when the extensions, passwords, bookmarks, etc were brought in the problem recurred. I then renamed the default file again, forcing chrome to start fresh this time not syncing. So far I have had no issues. I'm cautiously optimistic. If I have no issues in a couple of days I'll reset my sync file in dashboard and resync. Might be worth a try for you. Thanks Lander1 !
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... Keeping Up 12/2/11 9:56 AM
I have recently re-installed Chrome and now if I include it in my Windows "startup" program list it always locks up with the "pages unresponsive" message. No pages will load, neither its home page nor anything that is typed in the browser address bar, The only cure is to close Chrome completely and restart it; it then works just fine.

Internet Explorer doesn't have the problem.

Similarly if instead of relying on "startup" to start it, I wait and start it manually, it is fine then too.

I am using Chrome version 15.0.874.121 on the latest version of 32-bit Windows Vista Home Premium (SP2) and all Microsoft updates. The PC is an Acer Aspire SA90. The only other programs in the startup set are the Toshiba Bluetooth manager, Windows Mail and Windows OneNote 2007 Screen Clipper launcher. The antivirus is Trend Titanium.

Chrome becomes unresponsive when reloading a page that uses java.

OS: Windows XP Professional Version 2002 SP3
Chrome: 10.0.912.63
Java: Java SE 6 update 30

1) Go to http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp. Page will display normally and show the OS information
2) Click on "reload" to refresh the page. Chrome becomes unresponsive.
3) Go to "View background pages" on the Chrome menu and kill the Java plug-in. Chrome will go back to normal and display a message that the plug-in Java(TM) Platform SE 6 U30 has crashed.

http://zenverse.net/how-to-fix-google-chrome-slow-loading-problem/

If you’ve been to the preferences page, you would notice a settings in “Under The Hood” called “Use DNS pre-fetching to improve page load performance“. Everyone including me would have ticked this checkbox because it seems to bring only benefits and it sounds promising. However, it is not the case here, while I still cannot explain why this is happening, just untick the checkbox to bring your Chrome back to its speedy glory.

In my Google Chrome for Mac, the settings is actually called “Predict network actions to improve page load performance“. Therefore, just untick any similar checkbox.

Hope this helps.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... Keeping Up 1/6/12 2:09 AM
I've solved the problem here, I found that Chrome would hang when it was in my "Start" group. I deleted it from that group and instead I included it in the "Task Scheduler" (to be found in Accessories, System Tools), scheduled to load when Windows starts. It works every time now.

Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... kodown 1/14/12 9:00 PM
hi I had unresponsive browser issues with chrome and they advised to rename the default folder I found this helped a lot although it doesnt move your bookmarks and it creates another default folder when you begin to use chrome.

here's how according to chrome I did find though that I did have to go through the path to get to the folder ie user data folder etc and you do have to tell windows in folder options to show hidden folders.

instructions

Troubleshooting: Create a new browser user profile Share Comment
If your browser user profile is corrupted, you can create a new user profile to replace the broken one:

Exit Google Chrome completely.
Go to the Start menu > Run.
Enter one of the following directories in the text field, then press OK.
Windows

Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\
Windows Vista and Windows 7: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\
Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default

Linux: ~/.config/google-chrome/Default

Locate the folder called "Default" in the directory window that opens and rename it as "Backup default."
Try opening Google Chrome again. A new "Default" folder is automatically created as you start using the browser. You can transfer your old browser information to your new user profile; however, we recommend against doing so since a part of your old profile was corrupt. You can transfer your old bookmarks to your new user profile by copying the "Bookmarks.bak" file from the "Backup default" folder to your new "Default" folder.


if your screen colors changed suddenly,exit chrome app,
go to desktop right click chrome icon,properties,compatibility,
make sure (mark- run this program in cmpatibility mode for what windows u used) unmark all setting and privilege level, then try run again.

its works for me!!!!!


hope this helps
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... imaknockuout 1/25/12 7:16 PM
This is a shitty solution.  Google needs to fix Chrome.  This works for about a week and then it's back to the problem.  I've just shelved Google Chrome for the last 3 weeks as I know as soon as I get that first error, many more are following.
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... Norm DePlume 1/29/12 7:11 PM
"We do not recommend that you run Chrome without sandbox (" --no-sandbox"), as it makes the browser liable to exploits and malware attacks."

Well, chrome is unusable with the hanging.   So, we tend to use IE or Firefox instead.   Is "chrome --no-sandbox" less secure than IE or Firefox?
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... ShaunaTexis 1/30/12 4:26 AM
Chrome error is not something unique happened to you.
Sometimes there is a dreadful total crash of the browser and sometime it sends ddifferent errors, upon restarting nothing happens.
Do the following tasks:

--Repair and Clean Registry Errors
--Repair Flash: You may also need to repair your Flash player in order to stop Google Chrome from hanging. You can repair Flash in this way
--Run Scans for Malwares: Sometimes due to intrusion of malwares in the system, Google Chrome hangs or crashes. To end freezing and hanging problems with your browser, running scan with an antimalware software is quite helpful.

If your browser is hanging or crashing all the time then updating the sound drivers may also help.
You can also get some help from this article Google Chrome Hangs

Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... Nukino 2/11/12 7:33 AM
Chrome just doesn't work. Seriously where are the Google engineers. You open three text pages and it hangs, freezes, and wants you to "kill" your pages. Really - Chrome can't handle a 100K page with 3 tabs! And no other apps open on a new mac pro with 4 GB of ram. What browser do google employees use? It can't be chrome. Hello Firefox!
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... Carisue 2/20/12 9:44 PM
Firefox doesn't work any better. I got frustrated with it and switched to Google Chrome. With Chrome, I set the options to block 3rd party cookies and that seemed to help until I applied for a job online requiring that I allow cookies. Shortly afterwards, all three tabs froze and I couldn't close them, nor my A drive. Task manager wouldn't even open when I pressed ctrl-alt-del and the start button didn't work either. Finally, I had to shut down by turning off the main switch. When I restarted, I ran SuperAntiSpyware in quick scan mode and then deleted the 91 tracking cookies it found on my system (actually, I stopped it short since Chrome was beginning to hang again). I also reset the browser options to block 3rd party cookies. So far, that seems to be the remedy. It often does help to run SuperAntiSpyware when pages start to hang; SAS finds more malware than Malwarebytes and my AV program. A complete scan does a more thorough job, but it slows down Chrome, as does Malwarebytes and the AV even when running a quick scan. Run the complete scans while your computer is idle. Another strategy is to clear your browsing data frequently. Hope this helps.

****POSSIBLE FIX GUYS GIVE IT A TRY IF YOUR EXPERIENCING LOADING AND RESPONSE ISSUES WITH GOOGLE CHROME***

Hi there, i have been experiencing this same frustrating problem but seemed to have stumbled on somewhat of a fix for me; hopefully it will do the same for you guys; with everybody trying everything it cant hurt.

Right so this is in response to your unresponsive: kill page issue. If you click the spanner icon in the top right-hand corner of your screen; go to your setting tab and select extensions; in there delete all the unnecessary add-ons except your video and anti-virus software, e.g. for me it was DIVX Web player and Norton identity protection that remain. Following that i loaded every page i could think of with no peoblems.

I REALLY HOPE THIS HELPS YOU GUYS OUT TOO!

Well add me to the growing list of folks for whom Chrome no longer works due to constant unresponsiveness.   I tried deleting cash, cookies and everything else.  Made sure computer is virus free.  It's a Windows 7, 64bit system and I've even totally deleted Chrome and reinstalled with whatever the latest version is as of today 9/9/12.   I would give you the latest full version number if Chrome would ever allow me entry to do anything!   It worked all year long and just a few days ago this madness began and has never stopped.  I'm back to FireFox for right now.  If a workaround isn't found soon I'll be giving up on Chrome altogether as I need a browser that works.   What is really needed here is another major release that FIXES the problem.  Too many people are experiencing this now.  If there's an existing workaround . . . I'd love to hear it!
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... colincj 10/11/12 4:51 AM
Well today I uninstalled Chrome latest version.
Weeks of hanging pages etc.
The one thing that finally made me uninstall was the search function.
Type in Google search box any thing and it just sits there and does nothing, it dosent happen all the time but once is too many but its every day at some point or another.

So enough is enough and reading the hundreds of related to postas to chrome hanging well It definatley aint me or my OPSYS.

If you guys are serious about rubbing up against IE FF ETC YOU NEED TO SORT THESE PROBLEMS OUT AND QUICK.

Add me to list of people having problems with Chrome.
I'm getting unresponsive pages, and also the message about shockwave plugin crash. I implemented a fix with regards to shockwave (I had 3 installed apparently and deleted all but one).
But I'm still getting unresponsive pages. Not sure what it's about. mostly happening for now on facebook but not sure if it restricted to that webpage.
what's frustrating is that a browser needs to work smoothly in the background - it can't require a lot of fixing and maintenance b/c it is a tool to do other things.
i don't see any clear instructions about the unresponsiveness - i already deleted cache and browsing history - even deleted cookies. still unresponsive.
I don't have any anti-virus -

MAC 10.6.8 Intel Core i3 8GB

At first disabling Java Scripts seemed to help. The pages like Youtube loaded faster and Chrome didn't "kill pages". However java scripts are essential for running things, like Youtube videos. When I tried to watch a youtube video without it I had no video or sound, it was just black. So it doesn't really solve the problem, it just creates a new one.
Here is a screenshot of me refreshing a google topics related to this problem after I disabled Java Scripts.

I tried all the steps you suggested and still does not work. It happens with almost all the websites that I visit but mostly with the Queens university website.

All I can say is that the last update, "Version 25.0.1364.152 m" mostly fixed the problem.

Well, they did an update today to "Version 25.0.1364.160 m" which broke it again.  I did discover that once you get a page to load then other pages load ok in a new tab so it's the first page that's not loading.  I wonder if sync is getting stuck...   Oh well, after years of Chrome excellent, it's on a seep downhill slide.  Too bad.

So many options and possibilities BUT I THINK I HAVE HAD THE ANSWER.
Early days but for some time now google chrome has driven me to distraction with "unresponsive page" Wait or Kill.
Someone on here suggested to browse in "incognito mode" well I've tried it and YIPPEE !!!!!!!!!!!!
NO MATTER HOW MANY TABS ARE OPEN I HAVE HAD NO FURTHER PROBLEM ! So whatever is the difference in add ons plug ins apps between normal browsing and incognito browsing lies the fault.
For now I am VERY HAPPY.

Yes, I've noticed this too.  Also, I found that if you open Chrome to their tabs page.  Then you can open other links just fine.  Chrome is nearly always a problem on my old slow Win7 laptop but never on my Win8 desktop.  All super odd.

I was sufferring the same issue and I think I finally figure it out. After disabling gpu in advanced options - "Use hardware acceleration when available" everything works like a charm. I have integrated video card and it must not be stable enough for gpu acceleration in chrome. Similar issues were observed in Visual Studio for example and software rendering appears to be the only solution.
Hope this helps!

Sorry, I don't know what you are saying. I'm just a old guy who is going crazy with every site I'm on saying "page unresponsive". It will work fine for hours, and then it just all stops. I've had to force stop my computer at times to get out of it First it seemed to start when  McAfee  was updating automatically, but after a few hours with auto update turned off, was back to P.U. Please fix this. Also, this makes it impossible to get  email,  Or bid on ebay etc. Makes me REALLY mad.

Michal's solution to un-check the "Use hardware acceleration when available" advanced option worked for me.  I had also discovered that the problem was more likely to happen when the CPU was near capacity.  For example when my netbook was on battery which reduced the maximum CPU speed, or something like antivirus was sucking up cycles.  Anyway, un-checking "Use hardware acceleration when available" has so far fixed it.  Thanks Michael.

I was overly optimistic because this is still happening for me. You are right that it may be correlated with high CPU utilization. One interesting fact is that tabs that are never loaded do not show up in Chrome's tab manager, they just do not exist.
I learned just to open new tabs one by one, not to fast. Really, really sad user experience. Surprising that google cannot get to the bottom of it, provide some diagnostics to understand what is going on (speaking as former Visual Studio dev).

Tabs.. yea, I did find that opening multiple tabs at startup made things worse.  Also, opening from an external link, like from a local email client (T-bird) was worse.  The external link works ok now.  Haven't tried opening multiple tabs o startup.

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM TOO
Re: Chrome Unresponsive; Kill pages; Hangs; Loading... weatherdude 8/22/13 3:56 AM
Well, as mentioned above, un-checking the "Use hardware acceleration when available" advanced option totally solved it for me on both my desktop and netbook systems.
