I am running W7 Ultimate 32 bit. I have been using Chrome as my browser of choice until an update resulted in it coming up with the message 'Google Chrome has stopped working'. According to Google they are working on a solution to this, as the error message alone isn't enough to determine the problem. I created some logs following their instructions but the site to upload them to doesn't seem to exist anymore.
However, I have now started getting the '<> has stopped working' message from some other applications as well. Examples are Nero and IE8.
Could this be a message that M$ have introduced in one of their updates as a generic error message or is something else at work?
I briefly had Ultimate 64 bit running, but found that XP Mode wouldn't work correctly with a 16 bit application. 64 bit never gave any of of the error messages.
Has anyone encountered anything similar?
I had the same problem, Google Chrome just stopped working as described here. I tried several things, including re-installation, and removing Malware with Malwarebytes. (Malware bytes did remove a pile of Malware, so was worth it) None of these were successful in fixing Chrome for me. However, the suggestion above, did work work Running COMBOFIX, did just what it says above, and now Chrome works.
