    Default Google Chrome - Crashing and unable to fix

    Very recent problem but I started getting crash windows, eg. Whoa Google Chrome has crashed. Restart Now?
    I have been right through the troubleshooting suggestions at http://www.google.com/support/chrome...&answer=142063 but it makes no difference:
    NO Conflicts
    Unloaded Adobe and Macromedia Flash
    Uninstalled Chrome (twice now)
    Recreated User Profile
    etc etc.
    Chrome works ok unless I type something in the address line and it then either fails to do anything or crashes.
    I have two machines both running Windows 7 Home Premium.
    Both machines are running the most recent update of Chrome (10.0.648.151)
    Software loaded is common to both machines except for Quickbooks just added to the machine where Chrome fails; Chrome works fine on the other machine.

    It seems this problem with flash crashes is on going, and the fixes some lead you to believe work , well they don't . The problem is far more complex , and could I say could be the result of Chrome and its appetite to collect info. Until they the makers of Google Chrome come out with the Fix and an explanation of just what the cause of flash and chrome crashing is, I'd say mothball Google Chrome and try an alternate Browser.
    I use a browser called SRWare Iron, its built on the same principle as Google Chrome, and has two things going for it, first it doesn't "Flash Crash", and it does not collect info (tracking)on your surfing habits.
    If your interested in trying it out (might reduce your stress factor ),check it out
    here http://www.srware.net/en/software_sr...n_download.php .

    Smile Google Chrome - Crashing and unable to fix

    Thank you 'Sit-Back Observer' SRWare Iron loaded fine; looks like Chrome, behaves like Chrome but, so far, refuses to crash. Thanks again.
