Hi:)

I'm hoping some of you might be able to help me with my problem. Up until yesterday, my computer was working completely fine and quick. I open Google Chrome and my laptop freezes completely(the mouse moves but everything else is unresponsive). The computer tried a few times to dump physical memory and disk check occured but to no avail and I still have the same problem.

I have a Dell XPS M1530 and I'm running on Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit.

Any help but would be great. Cheers.

Lets try to find the cause. Does it freeze with I Explorer?
If no, uninstall and install Chrome, again
If yes, its another cause.
Run a full anti virus scan
Download and run a full scan with malwarebytes.
If both are negative, use System Restore to go back a week before the problem.

I have the same problem - the strange thing is that it seems to come and go and that it happens on mostly video intensive sites, or those with applet adverts (which today is almost everywhere). So I think it's a Flash problem. Microsoft has a sort of racketeering like arrangement with other software providers. A while back they got busted in Europe for them forcing you to use their browser if you use windows, I think they're still doing that but in different ways as a sort of workaround of the court decisions against them and in this case they have targeted chrome. Back in the 90s they essentially put netscape out of business. They probably build in time loops into all of their programs so that after a certain time things like this start to happen and then viola time to upgrade !! the problem goes away for a while and then ... i have this happen with every version of windows - not this exact problem but ones that amounted to the same thing

Chrome Browser crashes with Windows Vista (only during initial launch):

we have to disable SUPERFETCH service from Vista services:

- START -> RUN -> SERVICES.MSC

- scroll down to locate SUPERFETCH service

- double-click mouse on SUPERFETCH

- choose STARTUP-TYPE to DISABLED

- click APPLY

- REBOOT the system

It is good to delete all the files from C:\Windows\Prefetch folder regularly. We can delete the Prefetch folder itself completely, after deleting the Prefetch\Readyboot folder.
