hi all,

my acer aspire netbook [win xp ] has been working great until today.

 

i opened my chrome  browser and it crashed after about 30 seconds.

retried with same result.

 

i then :

 

1. disabled extensions

 2. disabled flash drive

3. went to '' incognito mode''

none of these worked.

 

i then went into settings and  ''added a new user'' and the browser is now working o.k

 

can anyone please explain this fault.

thanks

bj

Hello bjr1000,

 

Sorry but cannot give you a definitive answer only a possible reason, Chrome could be becoming unstable due to the lack of updates/security patches and technical support, you really should look at a browser that does still support XP as every time you go online you risk malware attack and the threat of hackers, end of Chrome support for XP article here

 

Lunascape, a browser that does still support XP.

Hi bj,

 

Not sure what happened but if Lunascape will not install try Opera instead which also still supports XP, download here

 

You are welcome btw  :)
