Windows 7: Google Chrome Plugin Illegal Instruction

Google Chrome Plugin Illegal Instruction

I was trying to play a video on GameSpot and it asked me to install a plugin so I clicked OK and then this popped up.

This happens every time, and in FireFox it doesn't even find a plug in. So I am not sure what to make of this.
