Tips and Tricks to Fix Google Chrome Crashes

Your Google Chrome may crash while watching YouTube videos or navigating websites. Frequent crashes are experienced due to several reasons, say conflicts with the modules, corruption of the profile data, problem with the integration of IDM, incompatible features such as software rendering, and so on.

Modules are used during program runtime. A module could be commonly shared with different applications. You're experiencing problem with the web browser because one or more modules installed is not functioning properly. Retrieve the list of all installed modules and disable any malfunctioning modules found.

For Windows 8.1/ 8 and Earlier Versions:
1. Double click Google Chrome desktop shortcut.
2. Type the following in the Address Bar:
3. A new tab will be displayed. This tab will come up with the list of modules installed. It may take a minute or two.
4. If any problems are found with the existing modules, uninstall it.

Remember that DLLs/ ActiveX file registration entries are corrupted. Use the ZombieSoftFix. Check for the registration entries of those files and resolve any issues that are found. I bet after restarting the PC it'll work normal.

The user profile is used to store user settings and configurations. Fix Google Chrome crashes by deleting the existing user profile. Corrupted user profile causes the browser to crash repeatedly.

For Windows 8.1/ 8 and Earlier Versions:
1. Press Windows Key + X.
2. Select Run.
3. Type the following path:
C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
(Replace XXX with the actual user name)
4. Click OK.
5. Remove ぎ"Defaultぎ folder.

Usually people use a download managing software to externally catch the downloads and to boost download speed. The problem arises when the downloading managing app fails to load and thus Google Chrome crashes. You may have to disable the download managing app in order to fix this issue. The actual process may vary depending upon the program you use.

One or more features are not supported. You may have to check if the software rendering feature is enabled, and if it enabled, please turn it off. If you find any other features, disable them as well.

For Windows 8.1/ 8:
1. Press the Windows Key + X simultaneously.
2. Select Search.
3. Type ぎ"inetcpl.cplぎ in the Search Box.
4. Click the Apps icon.
5. Open it form the Search Results.
6. Internet Options dialog will open.
7. Click the Advanced tab.
8. Uncheck the box named ぎ"Use software rendering instead of GPU renderingぎ under Accelerated Graphics.
9. Click OK.

For Earlier Versions of Windows:
1. Press Windows Key + R.
2. In the Open textbox, type ぎ"inetcpl.cplぎ
3. Click the OK button, or just press ENTER.
4. Refer Steps # 6-9 from Windows 8.1/ 8 user's paragraph.
