Hi, Ihave just put on my acer laptop and the chrome browser will not open, not on a new tab or an old tab, have run an antimalwarebytes scan and nothing detected, I am using I.E. now just to get online, very odd this, I prefer google chrome really, what could be wrong here? should I reinstall google chrome? was working fine last night till midnight, now at 0830 hours it will simply not open a google chrome window. thanks LAPTOPDUNCE (this is the laptop in The Netherlands, not in the UK)

Firstly reboot the computer and see if that sorts out the problem. If that does not work do a reinstall as that may be the quickest way to sort it out.

There was a Google Chrome update this morning. Might be worth downloading it manually.

I got the latest update to Chrome (42.0.2311.135) around 18:00 on 29th April. Maybe it was this auto-updating in the background that caused probs with yours.

Uninstall and re-install is probably the best bet (backup your bookmarks first if you want to keep them - most likely in C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default )

Its back on again now, I looked in updates and there was one "important" update and 28 minor ones, I downloaded the important one, something to do with microsoft net.framework something of about 78mb so installed that and restarted and now google chrome is running again - HURRAH!! - thanks LAPTOPDUNCE
