    Default System crash with Chrome 2.0


    I'm a big fan of Google Chrome, but I've got a showstopper of an error with the latest version of Chrome.

    Running Vista.

    After a few minutes of use, the Chrome window becomes unresponsive. The mouse still moves. I can close other Chrome windows, but not the unresponsive window. Network access is gone. Other applications won't start up. Then, when I press Control - Alt - Delete, I get a dialog box with this error message "logon process has failed to create the security options dialog." I can't get to the task manager. I can't restart or shut down the computer. All I can do is kill the power to the machine.

    Now, a few weeks ago, I upgraded to the Chrome 2.0 beta and these problems started happening. After a few days, I figured out that this problem seemed to be related to Chrome, so I downgraded back to the non-beta version. The problems went away.

    Last night, I let the updater update to the newest version of Chrome. Then, within a few minutes of updating, the system locked up and I got the "logon process has failed to create the security options dialog" error again.

    What (if any) security software are you running? It's possible that something in the Chrome 2.0 beta that's getting hosed by active protection. I've seen a lot of different things cause this problem but the most common problems have been protection software corrupted or failing hard drives. That's just my personal experience though.

    You might want to post a bug report.

    Also, you should consider switching to the Stable version (1.0+)
