    I don't want to have to reinstall Chrome. What have these updates done to Chrome. Is this just the Windows-Netscape battle all over again where anyone not using IE gets punished for it?

    Uninstalling and reinstalling chrome only takes a few minutes. If there are issues that can't be fixed by the normal channels, then the next best thing is to uninstall and reinstall chrome.

    It may be related to the S Channel patch which was included in the latest set of updates. I did not see anything recent, but there were posts about it in the last couple of years.

    Make sure and try a cold boot to see if that might reset something.

    I don't use Chrome, so not really familiar.

    I had to go to fire fox. Shockwave kept crashing and I tried 4 solutions to try and fix it. Nothing worked.
