I have been trying to solve this problem for a long time. I have been using Chrome for more than 4 years, it is the best browser for me.
Suddenly, Chrome stopped working. I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it more than 20 times, but it's still not working. By not working I mean I can't open pages, I can't open settings, I can't open plugin's, etc.
I have searched a lot on the Internet and I have installed many programs to remove trojans, worms, malware. But Chrome is still only working outside of sandbox.
From the Run prompt;
- This works: chrome --no-sandbox
- Doesn't work: chrome
My operating system is Windows 7 64-bit.
Screenshot per user request.
When I open the Task Manager in Chrome, I see something called GigaAuthExtension. I didn't install this. Could this be the problem?
I found that I am unable to start Google Services on Windows.
When I run chrome, I noticed this strange process:
conhost.exe and the path of it starts with
??. I just see it when I run chrome the first time after restarting windows
is this a maleware?
When I open a chrome page, I found these processes
I found that I have a process named
csrss.exe, I read that this could be either a system process or a maleware with the same system process name. I tried to right click on it and go to location, but no location open. I mean nothing opened. is that the problem?
