I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit. Some time ago, I had a problem with Chrome. It would come up 'Google Chrome is not working' and subsequently die. I had the suggeation to install an older version. That worked until it decided to update itself to the latest version without telling me! Then other programs started to follow suite.
I have just recently had to completely reinstall the OS on a clean disk and the problem has cropped up again. But not only Chrome. I have now had this message .... is not working' from Explorer, Internet Explorer, Nero Burning Rom (9 and 10) and some games as well.
I have a variety of 'PC Clean' type utilities available to me, and they all claim that there are 'problems' with the installation, e.g. CCleaner, Registry Mechanic - genuine ones, not the scareware variety.
Would running a cleanup utility actally help? Or is there something else going on?
Reinstallation was 18 November. So how many weeks is that for an installation to misbehave in? (I wasn't going to say 'gone bad')
