Find Out What’s Crashing Google Chrome

  • by

chrome task manager

 If you have already uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome, disabled and re-enabled extensions, and it is still continuing to freeze up, try using the Chrome Task Manager:

With Chrome running, press the Shift+Esc key combination to open the Chrome Task Manager. If necessary, expand the Task Manager window until all the fields come fully into view. Check to see if any of the running extensions or processes are using an extremely high amount of memory and or CPU time. If you see one that is using several times more resources than the other extensions and processes you have likely found the culprit. Click on the “greedy” process or extension and then click the End process button.

Now check to see if Chrome is back to operating normally (without the sluggish behavior you have been experiencing). If so, the extension you just disabled is the one that is causing your issue. Remove the problem extension to prevent the issue from coming back the next time you launch Google Chrome. If all of that fails, you may be infected with malware – give Frankenstein Computers tech support a call and we will be happy to help!
