    Browser crashing


    Hi, I am running win 8.1, i have had trouble with chrome crashing (shockwave flash) this happens all the time, even on the chrome settings page or upon launch (google search is my homepage). In ie i get a similar problem, i get an error message saying it must close the program.
    I had this before and i did a reformat and clean install of windows and it worked flawlessly for a few days but the problem is back. Everything else on PC is working fine.
    Specs:
    Sandisk SSD 120GB
    i5 2500
    4GB OCZ RAM
    GTX 680
    Antec Trupower 750W


    thanks for any help

    just to add, both times this has happened it has been after i have turned pc on after being off over night. I rarely turn system off but with no downloads or time critical software running i thought id power down. Maybe not relevant.

    What version of Chrome are you running ? Stable, Beta, or Dev.

    Uninstall and reinstall the latest stable version to see if that helps.

    thank you for your reply but it seems to have been fixed with the latest windows update. I suspect a memory leak problem that microsoft have now patched
