Google Chrome uses 500MB of memory to run

Q: Google Chrome uses 500MB of memory to run

I heard Google Chrome had some serious memory leak issues, so i opened task manager and at my disbelief Chrome was using approx. 500MB! If you dont believe me here's a screenshot of Task Manager, and btw i only had 3 tabs open..I think that is a serious memory issue, I am using Google Chrome 14 beta, but even beta's should not be using that much memory.... i guess its time to go back to firefox 6...

Preferred Solution: Google Chrome uses 500MB of memory to run

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Perhaps it was a couple of pages that had some issues. I've not experience this type of issue with Chrome. Have you been able to reproduce it again?

A:explorer.exe memory usage grows to 500MB+

Hi and Welcome to TSF

This sounds like a memory issue. IF you reboot after it gets slow...does it return to normal? Remember...RAM is being used on a constant basis and once filled cycles with each new program that is run. Without turning the PC off...the RAM never clears.

Lets check for some bad guys...anyway.

Before attacking an adware/spyware problem with hijackthis make sure you have already run the following tools. Download and update the databases on each program before running. Ad-Aware? SE Personal Edition
*Note* For Ad-AwareSE also install the VX2 Addon Cleaner To run this tool once Adaware is updated click on Add-ons in the lefthand column. Select VX2 Cleaner V2.0 and click Run Tool. Click "OK" , then, if something is found, click "Clean" as in the directions given. Click "Close", and exit Ad-Aware.
Spybot Search & Destroy
CWShredder

Also make sure you are using the the latest version (1.99.1) of HijackThis and it's installed in it's own folder on the root drive. (C:\HJT)

Please go to at least two of these sites and run an online Virus Scan.
Be sure to have the AutoFix box(s) checked if the site has that option.

Click OK
Press the CleanUp! button to start the program. Reboot/logoff when prompted.

Reboot into Safe Mode. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, then hit enter.

Hi, all!   
 
  I have a question about Google. Right now, I have two tabs open but when I look at the 'Processes' tab in Windows 'Task Manager', it shows 8 separate instances of Chrome running. I know Google has apps that run in the background, and the problem is that these apps use up enough memory that they slow down my unit to the point where sometimes it freezes. I then can't turn them off because nothing (mouse, etc) is working.  How can I get my installation of Google to use less memory and perhaps turn off these background apps?  
 
Thanks

A:Google Chrome memory hog

Chrome can do this to you !
 
Click on the three bar symbol in the top right hand corner and choose 'Settiings'. At the bottom of the screen you will see 'Show advanced settings', click on this and the page will expand. Scroll down until you come to 'System' and untick the box that says 'Continue running background apps . . .'.
 
This should solve your problem. If it doesn't, post back.

When i have multiple taps open, chrome seems to run very slow and often doesn't load pages.

my question is why is it using so much memory and is it normal?



I don't think it is my computer as here are the specs:

Yes it looks fine. It depends on how many tabs you have open and which extensions you have. This is mine.

Chrome is a speedy little browser, but that speed comes with a tradeoff: It also eats tons of memory. If you've got plenty of RAM, that may not be an issue; if not, you can reclaim that memory with a simple click.

As Lee Mathews over at Download Squad discovered, the most recent Chrome dev builds come with a command line switch (--purge-memory-button) that, when run with Chrome at startup, adds a Purge memory button to Chrome's task manager.

Hello everyone , I recently bought a new computer and have been getting Memory Management BSODs when using Google Chrome.I have played games for hours and it never happens. Only when using Chrome to browse websites. But it is probably not Chrome and more likely my ram.


I just want to make sure that is the cause of the problem. The reason I think it is my ram is because I use 1866mhz ram which I guess is atypical for my laptop(Clevo P370SM3) even though others have used it fine.

Anyway, I would love if someone were to look through the two dump files included in the zip and tell me for sure that it is my ram. I ran windbg and couldn't really find anything other then stuff pointing to memory and chrome as the program used before crash. I ran memtest 86+ 5.01(only 1 pass) and no errors were found.

Thanks Ahead!

A:Memory Management BSOD when using Google Chrome

Yea it looks like it is in fact your ram thats the culprit because the bluescreenview screen(dump file viewer) is showing that its a memory management issue.

EDIT (forgot to put this in): I would try taking out your ram and put them back in one by one and see if you can get the death screen to show up. If at any point; it does; you might have a bad and or incompatible type of ram. Even though it may work while playing games etc. and at other times it doesnt THAT is probably the reason for the bsod(the ram is i do believe)

Hi there,

I'm having BSOD problems with my Dell XPS 15z laptop. I recently received a BSOD Memory Management error while using Google Chrome. I have searched several pages looking up for solutions, but with no results. Ran the usb boot version of Memtest86+ around 2 hours and reported no errors. Have reinstalled my OS several times with no success. I kept on searching through the web and found this forum that deals with BSOD; followed every step to get the Memory Dump files into a zip.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to SevenForums.

Test the ram again, following this way:
Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+






Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.


Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

Quote Chrome started out as one of the least memory hungry browsers on the market but over time it developed a bit more of an appetite for RAM Now however Google is starting to get back to basics and the latest Chrome release version focuses on making the browser faster and more efficient As the company announced in a blog post today Chrome includes a number of updates that focus on making Chrome load faster and use less memory When you Update Google?s And Lower Usage Latest Speed Chrome Emphasizes Memory restart the Google?s Latest Chrome Update Emphasizes Speed And Lower Memory Usage browser for example and Chrome restores your tabs the browser will now first open those tabs you most recently looked at so you can get back to work or browsing car videos faster That will save a few seconds here and there but the real updates are in how Chrome now manages memory Starting with this update the browser will recognize when your computer is running low on resources when it s restoring tabs and then stops restoring them until you actively click to restore them yourself For the most part this will likely only affect those of you who regularly have a few dozen tabs open but if memory usage is a major issue on your machine then every little megabyte counts and you should probably look at extensions like The Great Suspender too Google s Latest Chrome Update Emphasizes Speed And Lower Memory Usage TechCrunch

Hello,
 
I'm trying to repair my parents computer. They were getting Trojan horse warning messages and crashing to blue screens. So far I have updated the BIOS and uninstalled all the browser addons and questionable apps I found on there PC. Since updating the BIOS it hasn't crashed to blue screen. However I'm getting a lot of lywqyjla.exe processes that say they belong to Google Chrome. I uninstalled Google Chrome and they are still there. Each of them is using varying amounts of memory and the CPU usage keeps spiking. I have run malware bytes and adw cleaner, each of them said they found and removed threats but these processes keep showing up.

I am an administrator on this computer, but when I attempt to download anything now from Internet Explorer, I get a Security Alert " Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded." I reset IE and it allows me to download the programs, but I still can’t run them. Hope this helps! Seems like I have a full blown infestation. L

For the past few days when I open up Google Chrome I get a white page with a yellow ribbon at the top that says "Chrome didn't shut down correctly" and then an option to "restore" which only brings me to a new tab page.
I have looked for solutions and have tried going into appdata and changing my "Default" folder into "Default_old" then closing down Chrome and opening it again but that doesn't work (and I don't get another "Default" folder as the instructions says I should). I have tried disabling my extensions (of which pretty much all of them are ad blockers) and apps. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome but so far nothing has worked. Am I just not doing these things correctly? Is there another way I can stop this? Because I would really love to open up Chrome and have my homepages there.
 
Thanks!

Whenever I open Google Chrome the first time after I finish booting my computer, it hangs for three seconds, during that time I see a wild amount of solid flashing on my hard-drive light indicator.

Upon looking on my task manager, I see 4 Chrome processes running, one of which seems to be causing a'lot of activity on one of the hard-drives. After a said few seconds the process disappears leaving only three processes and no hard-drive activity.

Is there anyway of stopping this kind of strange hard-drive activity when 'm opening chrome? I'm afraid the repeat thrashing might cause my hard-drive to wear out prematurely.

If anyone can help, please respond.

Thank you in advance.

It also depends, what kind of and how many extensions you have.
Some of them might be causing it, try to temporarily disable all.
Finding a cause can be difficult, you can try CleanMem Free.

Hello!  I am plagued by what I assume is a virus calling itself "google chrome."  I do not nor have I ever downloaded google chrome as an operating system; I run IE and it's fine.  However, in the following place:  Appdata-LocalLow.  There is a google chrome icon called "Vchoojpvy.exe" that cannot be deleted.  How do I get rid of it?!  Thank you so, so much.

A:Google Chrome: Google Search Extra Functions (Tips) Not Working

 I too have the exact same problem. i have tried hard for a month+ on 100s of sites with no avail. this probably is some super smart form of malware/virus which changes your IE's lan proxy settings to "127.0.0.1:8080.proxy.pac", this seems to affect chome and IE while firefox looks ok. the only "visible" difference is with the google main page as you described you'll also notice that at the bottom of the page, the number of page results are limited to 10 and no more, you just cant see more results than that. I couldnt find any any solid fix to this (not even complete reformat) The only temporary solution(till next reboot) seems to be to go to internet options in IE - connections tab - deselect that proxy setting and select automatically detect settings though i personally use hola better internet extension which seems to fix the problem till its kept on. I want this dreaded issue to get some attention so that am actual solution is found :/

Hello to all,
I have installed google chrome and I really like it. However it has one major drawback. It remembers what I have typed in google search bar.
How can I disable this?
I have uncheck every option in "under the hood" settings, but that is not it.
These search items disappear only when I do clear browsing data. But on the second use when I want to type something in google search item filed or just click on it everything that I searched in the previous session (if not cleared explicitly) is shown in form of drop down list.
Internet explorer and firefox allowed me to turn this auto completion whenI wanted.
Is it really that difficult in chrome?

Thanks

A:Google chrome remembers what I typed in google search engine

I think you can only block the search history in Chrome by using private mode.

Wrench icon > New Incognito Window.

This will prevent any searches, downloads and websites appearing in your history, and will delete all cookies when you close the window.

If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button. The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top.

If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.If Malwarebytes Anti-Malware results in any error messages, check the Help file's list of error codes within its program folder first. If you do not find any information, please refer to Common Issues, Questions, and their Solutions, Frequently Asked Questions. If the error you are receiving is not in the list, please report it here so the research team can investigate.Some types of malware will target Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and other security tools to keep them from running properly.

A:Google Search keeps redirecting, only affects Google Chrome so far

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and click on Proceed. This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer. NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.These are the programs I would like you to run next, if you have any problems with these just skip it and run the next one.-Security Check-Download Security Check by screen317 from here.Save it to your Desktop.Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.-AdwCleaner-Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
Close all open programs and internet browsers.Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.Click on Delete.Confirm each time with Ok.Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.--RogueKiller-- Download & SAVE to your Desktop RogueKiller or from here
Quit all programs that you may have started. Please disconnect any USB or external drives from the computer before you run this scan! For Vista or Windows 7, right-click and select "Run as Administrator to start"For Windows XP, double-click to start. Wait until Prescan has finished ... Then Click on "Scan" button Wait until the Status box shows "Scan Finished"click on "delete" Wait until the Status box shows "Deleting Finished" Click on "Report" and copy/paste the content of the Notepad into your next reply.The log should be found in RKreport[1].txt on your DesktopExit/Close RogueKiller+Gringo

As the name suggests I want to know if having 500MB of free space is ok.

A:Is it ok to only have 500MB of free space?

500 mb of free space is getting fairly low. Once you get down below about 10% of the total HDD size the computer can become very slow.

It might be a good time to think about a new drive & definitely consider a SSD.

Hi Guys,
Something weird happened this week. Disc C had 12.1Gb space left. Switched off computer and the following day when I switched on again, found only 500MB.
Went to Control Panel/Remove programs and did not find any new programs installed.
Did Father Christmas steel my remaining space? (HaHa)
Any ideas about how this happened? what can i do to restore the missing space?
also can i extend my c drive which is partitioned to the remaining space on the hard disc which has 100gigs capacity.
Thanks.

A:Disc C suddenly goes down from 12GB to 500mb

You might try a third party program like this http://www.filedudes.com/Space-download-33973.html (shareware, free to try) to see where your disk space has gone. It is possible a program created a dump file or system restore points. There are a number of reasons why your space could be disappearing.

As for repartitioning, that is dangerous, but can probably be accomplished with a program like partition magic, although that program is not free.

What would be quicker to burn 500MB data a CD or DVD?

I've googled and the answer seems to be DVD

BUT... this assumes that you're trying to burn 4GB of data and comparisons are given for this (or maybe I've read wrong?)
If it was *just* 500MB data, which would be quicker?

I regularly have to burn 250mb - 500mb of data
I normally just do it on DVD - there is no cost difference oddly than using a blank CD

But... just wondering... if I use blank CD's will I be saving a lot of time?

Thanks
OM

A:Low Disk Space (Drive C) of less than 500mb

Windows needs at least 15% of a free space to run smoothly (2.5GB in your case), so with 17GB hard drive no matter what you do, you'll keep running into very same problem.
IMHO, you simply need bigger drive.

Hi,

I want to uninstall Google Updater, but I have Chrome installed. So, if I uninstall Google Updater, will Google Chrome still be able to update automatically by itself?

No, you have to update manually.

I'm in mexico. When i go on google.com, it always go to google.com.mx. However i recently had a bigger issue. I had clicked on the bottom where i had thought it would change from mexico to usa for google. Instead... when i go to google, it shows everything in spanish. Can someone tell me how to fix this? It was something on the bottom or top right of the Google page.


But after that, how do i get to go to www.google.com.us?


Also when i go to sites such as espn, nba, wwe... it goes to the spanish site. Is there a way to go to usa site? Or would that require a vpn. I don't have a vpn and never used one before.

I'm not sure that you can uninstall them like that.

If you haven't already, you could use the tutorial below to cleanup old out of date Windows Updates that have been superseded by later updates to help free up some space.

Hi there I ve just completed a standard Ghost Disk-to-Disk Image transfer from one Seagate gb hard drive to another identical drive Having performed this procedure countless times I was a little surprised when the copying process only took about five minutes and even more so when I logged in to XP on the source machine For some reason Ghost or myself buggered up the formatting on the drive so now Windows XP thinks that the entire drive has a capacity of mb This is despite having approximately gb worth of 160gb 500mb XP is Drive thinks Hard files and applications on it all of which can be accessed i e the image didn t cut off the files having a virtual memory of gb sourced from the drive C - gt Properties- gt Hardware- gt Properties- gt Volumes brings up both drives with gb of capacity This is understandably frustrating I can t write anything to the drive nor even put the computer back on the domain I have never ever encountered anything like this problem and to remedy it I m about to ghost across a backup image to both drives in the hope that this will remedy the problem While I m getting it ready does anyone have any suggestions or advice for why this might have happened Thanks in XP thinks 160gb Hard Drive is 500mb advance Ben nbsp

A:XP thinks 160gb Hard Drive is 500mb

Okay now this is just baffling:

There are about 10 or so identical machines in my organisation, two of which originally developed this problem (160gb hard drive detected as 500mb in Windows). I assumed it was because of the Ghosting process: but when I booted up a third computer to make an image, it had the same problem.

I fixed all three of them, but it turns out this problem is more wide spread than anyone could imagine. Two other computers are now displaying the problem, and these were off the network and not touched for weeks surrounding the Ghost (which was Disk-to-Disk anyway!) So my question is now:

WTF?

The only explanation that I can think of is that we've been hit with a virus that is specifically affecting these dual-core, SATA machines (the rest of the computers are single-core IDE affairs). The trouble is, there are a few dual-cores that don't have the problem at all, with Windows citing their hard drive space at the appropriate 149 GB. Does anyone have the foggiest as to what else might cause this issue?

Cheers,
Ben

Hi Kusai ^_^,Could you please open up Task Manager and then post back a screenshot of the RAM usage sorted in descending order? Do this when the Task Manager shows you that the RAM usage is pretty high.When the RAM usage increases above a fixed percentage, Windows starts using the Hard Disk as a substitute for RAM which causes a pretty significant drop in the performance.Also, could you please upload the ZIP file generated by the below tool?https://omgdebugging.com/bsod-inspector/Once the tool completes, it will generate a ZIP file on the desktop. Please upload that file to a 3rd party file hoster like MediaFire, OneDrive etc and post the link here.Let me know in case of any problems ^_^-Pranav

I usually just use google.com but if I want to concentrate on local searches I use google.co.za (as I live in South Africa)

I have created a shortcut on my taskbar pointing to google.co.za .... I guess you could do the same, but use google.co.uk ?

Hello and welcome to the forums!My secret agent name on the forums is SweetTech (you can call me ST for short), it's a pleasure to meet you. I am very sorry for the delay in responding, but as you can see we are at the moment being flooded with logs which, when paired with the never-ending shortage of helpers, resulted in the delayed responding to your thread.I would be glad to take a look at your log and help you with solving any malware problems.If you have since resolved the issues you were originally experiencing, or have received help elsewhere, please inform me so that this topic can be closed. If you have not, please adhere to the guidelines below and then follow instructions as outlined further below:Logs from malware removal programs (OTL is one of them) can take some time to analyze.

Hi

I just want to know which browser is the best :Google,IE ,Mozilla or GoogleChrome.I'm currently using IE and google .I just wanted to know more about Mozilla and Google Chrome.Please suggest me a good browser as I am getting different responses from different people and I have also heard that some browser can also affect the working of the PC .

A:Google,IE ,Mozilla or Google Chrome

All of them are good so far. I use IE and Firefox at home, I use firefox as my main browser and uses IE for back up browser. So far firefox is the most stable browser I have and been using it for two years, I still encounter some browsing issues (which is normal) once in a while but not that too many compared to other browsers. I don't really download new browser, if there's new one being introduced over the internet, as long as my browser is working fine am gonna stick with it. Hope this helps.

Hi all,

I do not know what the problem is, but due to hardware limitations, the only browser that runs smoothly on my laptop is Google Chrome. I do have Firefox installed but it runs choppy at best, but google will load on it.

I cannot figure this out, but Google will load fine on Firefox, and all my smartphones, but not on this laptop. Gmail will load fine.

I've checked proxy settings and that doesn't seem to be the problem, and all other sites I visit, load fine.

Here is what I get when I try and load Google in Google Chrome:



If anyone knows how to fix this, I would be greatly appreciated.

Why is Google Chrome using so much memory? My computer is only a few months old and it is getting slower by the minute. I ran Adware virus removal....no virus. It was running fine until a week ago and now my fan keeps running higher everytime I open a new tab in Chrome. I usually only have around 3 tabs open. Please help before I throw it in front of a train....

Is it like that in Incognito Mode?

If not, one of your extension is likely the culprit.

A:Is it normal to get this much physical memory when there's no chrome?

Everything looks very normal. More free memory than I would like to see but nothing unusual.

Memory usage in any modern OS is highly dynamic. The memory manager will always try to assign memory where is will do the most good in maximizing performance. Memory usage may seem high but that is only because there is currently no better use for it. Run a demanding application and the current usage will be trimmed back as necessary.

I recently began a download on MEGA which uses local browser storage I guess before it downloads the file to my actual computer but I get this error every time 10GB of my download is complete saying my html5 offline space is full and to clear it. So I go into chrome://settings/cookies and I see that the local storage is automatically stopped at 10GB but my download is 11.17GB. Is there any way I can increase the persistent storage by 2GB so my download can finish? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My computer was at 90% physical memory usage and was acting very slow. I did a system restore to 12-9-15 when I did not have this problem. Now google Chrome won't open and my physical memory usage is still pretty high, 59%. Internet explorer works but I get a script error popup when I hit the delete key or go to any webpage.
 
And in task manager I keep seeing many instances of weird processes like rundll or conhost.exe or "flashutil64_16_0_0_235_activex.exe". I tried closing them but they keep reopening. Any help would be greatly appreciated because I'm pretty sure I have some kind of malware.

It's the same for Windows 7, but It only seems to do that when you type in Google.

Am using IE11, and have been since it came out. Just lately keep getting get google chrome annoying tab.
It has not happened for a long time. I have Ccleaner, and remove google cookies, but it does not make
any difference. Also have IE11 set to block pop ups. I don't know why this annoys me, just wondered if
anyone knew how to get rid of it.

it says i need to reset my sync passphrase but i have a bunch of stuff synced with it, if i reset my sync will all that go away? it says ''Reset sync to clear your data from the server and remove your passphrase. This will not clear data from your devices. Sign back in to Chrome to start syncing." so if i do that, and say i synced on my last computer but not this one, if i reset it can i get to that stuff? because i have a lot of bookmarks on here and i dont want to loose them (the bolded thing is what im asking about)

Hey guys, this is definitely the wrong forum for this question, and I apologize in advance. I wasn't sure what I should put it in.

My issue is that occasionally google chrome will break and will load the page, but still be covered up by the half of the previous page.

Here's a video to make my explanation make more sense:
2015-04-04_1349 - Squeezitgirdle's library

In order to get it to go away, I have to close out of the entire browser. Alternate tabs don't work, and closing out of the tab that has the issue doesn't work, it also covers up my other tabs.

I have recently reformatted windows 7, but I don't think that would have much to do with it.

Thanks in advance guys!

A:Google Chrome

When was chrome last updated? What chrome extensions are you using? Does the happen with any other browser you are using?

how can i save my bookmarks ? and then i need to reinstall.

A:Google chrome again....

I'm not a Google Chrome user so this is an educated guess.

Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar.
Select Bookmark manager.
Click the Organize menu in the manager.
Select Export bookmarks.
Choose a location where you want your exported file to be saved, then click Save.
Google Chrome should export your bookmarks as a HTML file. (Note: a good place to save is your desktop.)

Now uninstall Google Chrome. (You should be able to do this from Control Panel > Programs and Features.) After reinstalling you should be able to click the wrench icon, follow above steps, but this time select Import bookmarks and browse to your desktop.
