you can also fix problem by updating your browser, if no update is available upgrade to beta version for some period and then switch back

I've uninstalled chrome and reinstalled it.
I still can't bring up the hd cameras on my favorite website, nor can I listen to a short recorded broadcast from another favorite website like I could a week or so ago. What's up? Youtube and other flash things work fine.
I have a PC running XP.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled google chrome about six times, I have taken off the shockwave and done everything that I have found and it still gives me a pop-up that says, 'The exception unknown software exception (0x40000015) occurred in the application at location 0x0114bf18.' I have no idea what it means and since it happeneds everytime I open my browser, I do not know how to fix it. I have windows 7.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome at least 5 times since intalling an all in one Canan printer, that I've since returned due to that...

I'm running on XP and I've noticed that the problem (doesn't load) only occurs when I'm not signed in as a user.

It's the first time I've ever experienced such a problem, I run virus checks regularly and everything else seems to be working. I'm hooked on Chrome though and can't ever work without it! Pls Help!!!

Two years I used Google Chrome as my default. All the time
it works properly, but after visited some hacker, does not
work well. Permanently sand messages:" Google Chrome requires Windows XP (installed on my computer)or later.
Some features may not work." I check all computer, no treats, no virus. no malicious. In error report it is code
0x80000003, address: 0x0000000000413900. Microsoft, Windows
and the other have not answer, like everything is OK, but is
not. I am worry very much: computer can't work, every day come new and new problems! See that many have this problem?!

The problem is that browser files got corrupt. Application data files need to be deleted and re-created again. Here's how:

1. Launch the Run dialog.
2. Type AppData in it & press ENTER.
3. Open the following folder:
..LocalGoogleChromeUser DataDefault
4. Delete all contents from it.
5. Re-launch your browser again.
