Chrome has suddenly stopped loading any pages.  Internet explorer and firefox still work just fine.  I can't even get to Chromes settings. Nothing spins, nothing moves.  Running Windows 7 64bit.

Here are the things I have tried:

1. Safemode run of Malwarebytes and Combo fix - no viruses found

2. Complete uninstall/reinstall of Chrome & reg entries with Revo

3. CMD >  netsh winsock reset catalog

4. Disabled active protection in AVAST (Avast updated)

5. -no sandbox addition to shortcut path

6.  -disable-plugins addition to shortcut path  

 

Unable to system restore (error message) with near date.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

Have you typed "-no sandbox" or "-no-sandbox"? Because as far as I know, the proper way to type is "-no-sandbox".

Perhaps I did have it wrong.  The proper syntax did restore functionality.  However, I now get the message "you are using an unsupported command-line flag.  Stability and security will suffer".  Sounds bad enough.  And account doesn't seem to be sync'd after sign in - no bookmarks.

 

Now how to get it back to normal?

Nevermind.  Not working anymore.  Just worked for a day or two but now it's the same thing - no page loads.

 

So . . . . . . nuke my computer and start over?  Is there a solution for this?

Hello PSorokin,


Some things to try:
 

 

  • Right click on the shortcut, and select run as administrator [Windows Only]

     

  • Open your Task Manager and make sure you’ve exited out of every instance of Chrome [Windows Only]

     
    1. Go to the Windows folder "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome"
    2. Rename "User Data" to "User Data_backup"
    3. Start Chrome

       

    Please let us know if any of that helps.

Do you recall if anything had changed before Chrome had stopped working?  Did you download anything or install any new software?

I'm just wondering if you're able to load webpages in Safe Mode w/ Networking using Chrome?  Can you test that?

If it works in Safe Mode, then I would think there is some software conflict or malware preventing it from running normally.

I know you mentioned you tried uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome, but the only other thing I can think of to suggest at this point would be to try that again, but use this link to download Chrome.

  1. Click link
  2. Select Chrome checkbox
  3. Click Get Installer button at bottom center
  4. Run the download once it's complete

Ran in safe mode with networking.  Did not work

Uninstalled with REVO uninstaller.  Reinstalled with the Ninite application, linked above.  Still does not work.

 

I really appreciate the suggestions, but it's starting to seem like nothing is going to fix this.  :(
