Windows 7: Google Chrome Stopped Working

It is some app/service interfering then. You tried a clean startup though so no idea what could be. Some security software default to start even when disabled though, so perhaps look at them in case.

Then try:
- Create a manual System Restore point - System Restore
- Run as admin - Download Complete Internet Repair - MajorGeeks
- Select Options: 1-2-3-4-and-Reset Windows Firewall

I will ask for more help. Hopefully someone else will come up with ideas.

In the meanwhile, SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Also try disabling Comodo (if possible)

Well I have fixed the problem. Doing more searches online, someone suggested that renaming chrome.exe to chrome..exe fixed the problem for them. Surprise, surprise, it worked for me. I have no idea why it started in the first place or why this fixed it. But for now, all is well. Thanks for trying. Chuck

Heh, nice find. I searched for it now after you mention the solution, can you check compatibility tab?

I have changed the compatibility to every option and it never fixed the problem. Right now it's running normally under Windows 7. Chuck

I am only continuing just because I am curious. Tell me to stop if you wish not to pursue this anymore.

Sorry if I missed it, I haven't seen a mention of Comodo, did you try disabling it or even uninstall? Some component of Comodo may be disabled in Safe Mode with Networking, hence why it worked. It may even be simple as to tick a checkbox somewhere within its configuration.

I shut down all of my firewall and antivirus software and processes including shutting everything down using services and task manager. I did not uninstall anything. It did not make a difference. I started the computer without allowing any of those to run at start up. It didn't help. Chuck

Ok, out of ideas at the moment. Will post if I come up with anything else.
