Chrome not loading pages

Helped a friend fix an issue with Chrome. Chrome was fine one and not the next. Chrome would open but wouldn’t finish loading a page. I fixed a Chrome issue before so I tried the following. Here were the steps I took.

  1. Deleted the user profile.
  2. Re-install Chrome.

Neither one of these fixes worked.  Here are the steps I took that got Chrome working again.

  1. Uninstalled Chrome.
  2. Uninstalled Java ( version 6, current version 8).
  3. Ran CCleaner to fix Registry.
  4. Rebooted machine.
  5. Ran CCleaner to fix Registry again.
  6. Re-installed Chrome and everything worked again.

I hope this helps someone out.

Another user in Google Forums posted this solution.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application into your windows “Search programs and files” box (Windows picture in bottom left of your screen).  Right click on the Chrome icon and in the settings I had to check a box that made it compatible with the version of Windows I was using.  It worked immediately.


I hope this helps someone out.
