Some of google chrome extensions have been corrupted constantly. In the period of 2 or 4 days, some extension's status are changed to "corrupted".

Then, I need to "Repair" every corrupted extensions. But, just a few days later, the situation repeats again and again and again..... During the period of time, nothing and no any single change makes for the google or computer at all. The extensions are just corrupted again and again... It is really annoying and wastes much time to repair.

What to do to prevent from it? Or, is there a way to "repair" all of corrupted extensions by clicking one single button?

You have a much more serious problem than re-repairing all your extensions at once:

Why are they getting corrupted in the first place?

Corruption means that something is modifying your extensions, and this is entirely abnormal and even alarming.

The possibilities I can see are:

  1. Your computer is infected (seems possible)
  2. You have installed a rogue extension (less likely as extensions are sandboxed).

For the second case, you could remove all extensions and add them one by one to check which one is doing it.

The first case is much more difficult. Read the following article for advice:

  • Don't you have a similar issue on your Chrome? It happens on mine always and it means there's extensions corruption nearly every day. – Ray Kao Mar 9 at 12:18

    I never had extension corruption on Chrome or any other browser, which is why I'm worried about your problem. – harrymc Mar 9 at 12:21
