What to do if Google chrome crashes
I know very well that most of you are very much fed up of seeing the crash message in your Google chrome browser. And you would be surely eager to know the reason behind the crashing of your Google chrome and would be looking out for all the possible ways to fix it without reinstalling it again. This article will tell you, the reasons behind the crashing of your Google chrome browser and all those possible ways to fix this error.
If your chrome is crashing too much then there may be various reasons behind this. The first possible case, due to which your chrome might be crashing so often, would be the conflicting of the soft wares with the Google Chrome browser. In order to check that what is the conflict or about the software conflict, just type chrome://conflicts in the omnibox (this is the place we usually type URLs like www.Google.com ). The above action will result in the opening up of a tab, as given below.
The soft wares which are conflicting with the Google chrome will be shown here, in the form of highlighted text. Here, the number of highlighted list represents the number of software conflicts that is there in your browser.
Now, we move to the next step, where we can check whether you need a new Google chrome profile or not. If you are a windows user, then you may fix this error showing that your chrome has been crashed, by moving the default subfolder from User data folder to a level up. This can be done by following the steps given below.
As I am using windows XP operating system, so following is the windows which will open.
As you can see, there is a folder named Default. What you have to do next is to change the name to ‘Backup’ and then move this to a level up, i.e. in the chrome folder in which ‘user data’ named folder is there as shown above. Then check whether your chrome browser is working or not. If the problem still continues to exist, then there is an option to create a new user profile in the chrome.
For this you don’t have to do any extra effort. Firstly, completely stop using your Google Chrome and open the above mentioned folder ‘user data’ and rename the ‘default’ folder to “Backup default”. After doing the above thing, just start using your Google Chrome browser. This will create the ‘Default’ folder in this directory automatically and then there may be great possibility, that your Google Chrome starts working.
For getting your older profile setting or getting your old book marks just copy ‘bookmark.bak’ file from the ‘Backup default’ folder to the new Default folder which have being created automatically after using the Google Chrome. After moving this file to default, the last thing you have to do is to rename this file to bookmark that solves your problem and your old bookmark is again there. This process is the same for Mac OS as well as for Linux OS.
In case, if all of the above ways doesn’t help you, then the last option which would surely be the last thing to do, and which I would never suggest, because it is little bit risky. So, though we tell you the process, but we would recommend that not to go for this process.
The process is quite simple. Just go to Start and then open run and type SFC.EXE /SCANNOW. What this command actually does is to open the Microsoft utility that will start scan and repair the problem with the protected system files.
