  3. In address bar type in %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data
  4. You’ll find “Local State” file there. Delete it
  5. Open Google Chrome and see if has helped.

2) You could also try the following.

Rename the Default folder which has all the Google extensions, Bookmarks, History, Jumplist icons etc. The reason why we are renaming it is because if it’s not the cause of the random freezes and crashes, then we don’t have to lose all this information.

To rename the Default folder, follow these steps:

  5. Open Google Chrome and see if this has helped stop the crashes.

Remember to rename the folder back to its original name. Now you at least know if you need to look at at thse factors or not.

3) You might also want to checkout if the Flash extension is the culprit and causing the crashes, and see if it helps. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Open Google Chrome
  2. In the address bar type in “about:plugins”
  3. Find “Flash” and click on Disable
  4. Restart Google Chrome and test it now

If it helps, then uninstall Flash from the Program and Feature and reinstall it. To reinstall Flash, you may follow this guide on Adobe.

4) Check if your Google Chrome Shockwave Plugin is creating problems. Find & Disable Power-Hungry Extensions in Chrome using Chrome Task Manager.

5) Well, if none of these steps help you, you might have to consider reinstalling your Google Chrome browser. To do so:

  1. Go to Programs and Features and Uninstall Google Chrome
  2. Then open explorer.exe and go to %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\
  3. Delete “Google” folder
  4. Download Google Chrome and install it again.
