Chrome crashes unexpectedly and downloads unknown files when surfing websites Bardhylius 2/14/10 4:12 PM
Google Chrome simply crashes unexpectedly and sometimes downloads (or starts downloading, I cancel them) unknown files when I surf websites. I can't really tell in which websites these problems occur, but they both occur randomly.

Google Chrome version: 4.0.249.89 unknown (38071)
Operating System: Windows 7 Professional
URLs (if applicable): N/A
Error Message: Not a regular crash where the sad icon ('snap') appears, but one where Windows shows you the application isn't responding.
Extensions installed: None.

I am having the same problem. Chrome has been very unstable for me this month. I wonder why since it has been very stable before. What I noticed was that it frequently loads gibberish when I open some sites or downloads something before loading a page. In such cases, chrome crashes afterwards or stops responding most of the time.

Google Chrome version: first series of crashes started with 4.0.249.89, it still crashes even if I upgraded to Google Chrome 5.0.317.2 Beta
Operating System: Windows XP Professional
URLs (if applicable): crashes randomly in any website
Error Message: Whoa, Chrome crashed, or sometimes chrome does not respond at all
Extensions installed: None.

I'm having the exact same issue lately.  Either Chrome displays gibberish, or I notice files being downloaded with no extensions.  One file was named FC, and 2 other ones were named download and download1.  During these times the browser just freezes randomly. After closing Zone Alarm firewall, things went back to normal.  Anybody else using Zone Alarm and having these issues?

I'm having the same problem. I noticed this happens when trying to access imdb.com, amazon, e-bay, online dictionaries and also other random sites.

What's the problem? What to do?

Apparently google isn't very interested in helping.. I've been looking around but i have yet to find a actually helpful chrome support page. Google Chrome for the past week has been really crazy. It has been randomly freezing and just tons of equally stressful things.. i've realized i might have to end up changing back to firefox even though i like chrome.

Same problem, it crash frequently, not every time, when you try to download a attachment from Gmail.

It seems Google Team is DEAD as this problems exists since first post on this thread 2009.

Now is 2011 June, still no solution!!!
