Hi all, Google Chrome used to work for me but now when start it, it crashes after about 10 seconds with the message "Chrome is not responding". I have uninstalled and reinstalled it many times and the issue does not resolve. I have installed Google Canary and that works okay but would really like to get Chrome working again.

Thanks for your help.

Could you try this to fix the issue?

1-Go to: C:\Documents and Settings\user(yourname)\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application In that folder you will see the Google Chrome icon. Right-click on it and choose the 'Properties'- option. In there, find the 'Compatibility option on the upper toolbar. The Toolbar contains the options: General, Versions, Compatibility, Digital Signatures, Summary.
In the 'Compatibility' window, find the "Input Settings" - unclick the "Turn off advanced text services for this program'option.
2- Scan virus, registry by free virus tool at this site, https://www.malwarebytes.org/mwb-download/
