The latest software update released by Google for Chrome on Windows 10 causes the application to crash, the add-ons not working, and the application not to open at all. If you also suffer from these problems, you can take a look at the solutions we mentioned.
In the news we have shared with you so far, we have generally been talking about Windows 10 updates causing system problems and how to fix these problems. This time, we will talk about a problem that is experienced in Windows 10, but this time the source of the problem is not Microsoft. If you are also a Google Chrome user, the problem may have affected you, too.
The latest update of Google Chrome for Windows 10 users caused problems such as crashing, browser extensions not working, and even Chrome not opening at all. This problem, which has been reported by millions of users on the forums, has also been noticed by Google. Although the exact cause of the problem has not been determined, Google engineers have announced that they are working to solve this problem.
There are several ways you can avoid the error
Responding to notifications by users, a Google engineer said the problem could be caused by the directory holding information about the current version of Chrome in the user data storage. Stating that the simplest way to get rid of this is to start using the beta version of Google Chrome, the engineer says that the next stable version update can eliminate this problem. However, it should be kept in mind that using a beta version can always lead to new and bigger problems.
According to the explanations made by some users, restarting the computer also solves this problem. However, a large number of users who have tried this method say it hasn’t worked. If you are also having problems with Google Chrome, this method may help you to get rid of it. However, some names specializing in software have also produced their own solutions for the problem that caused Google Chrome to crash. If you wish, let’s look at these alternative solutions now.
Alternative solutions you can try to get Google Chrome working
Get to the location% LOCALAPPDATA \ Google \ Chrome \ User Data.
Back up this folder to a different location.
Delete the “Local State” folder.
If the problem is resolved, you can delete the folder you backed up. However, if you encounter an unexpected situation this time, copy the folder you backed up back to its old place.
Uninstall Google Chrome from your computer.
Delete the Google Chrome folder that will be located in the Program Files or Program Files (x86) folder of your hard disk.
Open the “Users” folder in the disk where the system is installed. After clicking on your username, go to the folders named App Data, and Local. Delete the folder belonging to Google Chrome here. (If you can’t see App Data in the Users folder, make hidden files and folders visible.)
Enter the Start menu and start typing “Registry Editor”. As soon as you see the application, stop typing and run the application called Registry Editor.
Click on “Software” then “Google” subdirectories in “HKEY_CURRENT_USER” and “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE” directories.
Delete any entries that come across.
Download and reinstall Google Chrome.
If you do not want to deal with these methods or if you do not solve a problem, you can choose to use Microsoft Edge or a different internet browser, which is preinstalled in Windows 10.
