I just installed the latest release of Google Chrome.

The problem is, when I open YouTube, Yahoo or some other sites, the browser instead of opening the site, displays some weird page full of random characters, and starts up a download of some application name "download". What do I do to fix it?

I am on windows 7 Home premium. PS: Now Google Chrome has started crashing. I have install a new copy which has no extensions, I have disabled my internet security software but still the problem is there..

Can you post a screenshot, please? Also, which operating system? – Ryan O'Hara Apr 29 '12 at 16:30

Something corrupts the arriving HTTP packet and the browser cannot understand it as a web page.

Most likely, you use some kind of web proxy or content filter or one is installed in your router or gateway. Antivirus software may be the culprit too.

@UmerFarooq Try disabling the Internet security software. Confirm if that's the cause of the trouble. – Bibhas Apr 30 '12 at 6:34
