  • Create a shortcut to chrome and put it on your desktop, right click on the shortcut and go to its properties. Append the following to the end of the target, " --in-process-plugins", without the quotes. Make sure there is a space between .exe and that string.

  • Aside from the comment by sharp65, it is a known issue that Chrome is not functioning correctly in Windows 7.  This is something that Google will have to update to get it fully functional.

  • Initially it didn't work for me but, after I made sure there were 2 dashes at the beginning it worked fine.

  • I'm not exactly sure what's wrong with Chrome, but using the in-process-plugins switch has been a problem for me a few times because I seem to get Adobe Flash crashes every so often, which crashes the tab. Also, when loading a URL from an alternate source (from within explorer or an email) Chrome won't load pages unless I already have an instance of the app already initiated with the in-process-plugins switch. Just a few small hassles, but it makes me wonder what Windows 7 does differently that makes Chrome unable to separate plugins from tabs, or whatever's happening.
