Problems with 64bit Google Chrome

  stephneedham 13:54 07 Nov 2014

Has anyone else had problems running the 64bit version of Chrome on Windows 8.1 (64bit)? I have just reverted to the 32bit version of Chrome, having found the 64bit build almost unusable - long delays when typing into the search box; dropdown menus not working and general sluggishness.

Sorry, forgot to note the version number before I uninstalled it, but it was the latest stable build.

freezes up quiet often, especially on gmail but other webs too. i close it down in task manager and reopen that solves the problem, also running ccleaner makes it a lot more responsive and quicker just a guess but i think it has memory leaks.

I reverted to 32bit by downloading the 32bit installer, uninstalling the 64bit Chrome and doing a cleanup with ccleaner and then installing 32bit Chrome.

I'll stick with 32bit Chrome for now. My laptop is getting a little long in the tooth,but I will try again maybe after having a good clean up.

Thanks for all your responses.
