Google Chrome

Google employee Blair has posted a list of software applications that are known to crash the Google Chrome web browser. Among the list popular applications such as PPLive, Nvidia NTune, SpeedBit Video Accelerator or Folder Guide.

The suggested course of action is to temporarily disable the program to see if it resolves the crashes.

Google has also identified workarounds for some applications that are incompatible with Google Chrome if they are run in their default startup setting.

If you have Internet Download Manager (IDM), disable the 'Advanced browser integration' option within IDM (go to Options > General).

If you have NVIDIA Desktop Explorer, try removing the nvshell.dll

If you have FolderSize, try the fix on this site:

If you have NOD32 version 2.7, upgrade to the latest version of NOD32 or disable internet monitoring in NOD32 2.7.

Finally malware has also been identified as known causes for Google Chrome crashes.

Blair suggests to look in the system32 directory to see if the dynamic link libraries userlib.dll, tcpipdog0.dll, tcpipdog1.dll, and tcpipdog3.dll are present, and if they are to delette them since they are malware and not system files. Chrome users who experience crashes should also try and find userinit32.exe on their system, and if they do remove it from the operating system to remove one of the possible crash reasons.

Crash reasons have changed in recent time, and we have posted a new guide that may help you resolve Chrome crashes and hangs. Probably the most common reason for crashes in Chrome is outdated software that somehow integrates with the browser. This can be a download manager, security software, or other software that runs in the background.

The best approach is to try and find updates for the software programs that you are running to see if updates resolve the crash issues that you are experiencing.

    If you have IDM, It’s not necessary to disable the ‘Advanced browser integration’ option. You just need to uncheck “Google Chrome” under “Capture downloads from the following browsers”.

      Mr. Albaraha your words “If you have IDM, It’s not necessary to disable the ‘Advanced browser integration’ option. You just need to uncheck “Google Chrome” under “Capture downloads from the following browsers”. Sir even that is not needed, my Internet Download Mannager I am using for the last about 2 years, it is fine & that was also the reason I didn’t un-install, NVIDIA card & its driver is being updated by Microsoft, how anybody without analizing says un-install this or that when things were working fine

    What about fixing the ‘Alt-Space’ shortcut.
    I cannot use Launchy while using Chrome.

      I have Launcy and Chrome installed and ther is no conflict.
      Check the extensions you have.

        My Internet Download Manager, NVIDIA Card & its driver & other softwares are all installed & working fine; the problem was my registry was configured which was intimated by Google itself. Yes I tried as per their advice but REGISTRY I could not configure & ultimately I restored from my System Image & now everything is working fine.
        I must thank you for taking interest in my problem which was created my grand child.
        I have restored my whole system to my earlier position & everything brought to as fine.
        Thanks a lot for your concern
