The computer is running much better however, every time I try to run/uninstall chrome, it freezes the computer and I am forced to do a restart every single time I touch it. Any suggestions on how to fix it would be greatly appreciated, thank you for your help so far.

Hi Grobanish,

Do you get any error messages when Chrome crashes? When you tried to uninstall it did you use the menu option, Uninstall Google Chrome or did you try and uninstall using Control Panel->Programs and Features?

Hi Grobanish,

Step One: Farbar Service Scanner

Please download Farbar Service Scanner and run it on the computer with the issue.
  • Make sure the following options are checked:
    • Internet Services
    • Windows Firewall
    • System Restore
    • Security Center
    • Windows Update
  • Press "Scan".
  • It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
  • Please copy and paste the log to your reply.

What I need in your next post:
1. The Farbar Service Scanner log, FSS.txt.
2. The answer to my chrome question from my previous post.

Hi Grobanish,

That's fine, thanks for letting me know. :thumbsup: Because this is taking more time than normal it would be best if you don't make any changes to the computer while we are working on this and it might be wise to use it sparingly until we get the problems sorted out.

I haven't been going on it. I use my mac for basic things. Suizome got sick so she wasn't able to make it. I have to talk to her and see when she's feeling better and can come over to help. :(
I'm sorry this is taking so long.

Hi Grobanish,

I was wondering if you feel confident enough to tackle this on your own? I'll post one step at a time and will be here to help if you have any questions. I can go slowly with you and talk you through the steps. If you feel you can do it, please follow the instructions in post 33 and ask me any questions you have.

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Right click SecurityCheck.exe, select Run as administrator, and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.

Thank you very much! > . < I'm sorry I haven't replied in a while, I've had a huge math test and not much time for the computer at all.
I'll let my friend know and hopefully she can come over this weekend, if not on Monday!
