  • Uninstall , reboot and reinstall Chrome with the latest version. There was obviously a problem with the current install. That's not funny.

    Not the beta, V8-

    Known Product issues

    Uninstall Google Chrome

    Install Google Chrome

    You must realize that it's a work in progress.

  • Nano Warp,

    thanks, did all that and it works again now.

    Still wondering what happened, yesterday it worked too.

    Should I stop automatic updates from microsoft?

    kind regards,

  • Do you have Microsoft Security Essentials installed?  Recently they released a bad update where it picked up Google Chrome as a Trojan by mistake.  Since windows updates pushes some of those virus definitions, that's what I'm thinking it happened.

  • No. do not stop automatic updates. The integrity and security of the operating system is important.

    You can resolve application issues.

  • Absolutely not funny.  Shame on you Microsoft.

    I decided to add a firewall rule for Google Chrome rather that uninstall and reinstall.  That turned out to be non-trivial because I first needed to unhide the AppData folder.  Once I did that I could then set the new firewall rule.  That rule didn't apply immediately so I had to reboot to get the rule to take.  

    Big waste of time.   What do people who aren't tech savvy do?  Switch to IE9 I suppose.  Very unfortunate.
