Windows 7: Chrome: Jim is dead.. How to diagnose

Some say you will get that message when you shut down your computer with Chrome open.
To me it is malware.
It's none of Googles business how much ram one has or doesn't have.
Any program that does things like that makes one grab all the security scanning programs just to make sure your system is secure is malware.

If it was my computer Chrome would be gone. We have enough scare ware out there we don't need any more. Then telling us it's normal. B/S

It's malware sponsored by Google Chrome as far as I'm concerned.

Multiple tab... Maybe a problem. I often have many tab open. I will try to close more often and or use more than one session.

I will see if there is a Chrome 64 version

With that much RAM do you also have a Paging File? Some folks suggest not having a Paging File when also having lots of RAM but some programs still look for it.

I changed nothing
All is running like the previous version for the moment

I don't see any difference and all my setting and extension are running like before. To make sure,
I did look the version using Chrome://Chrome and yes, I got the latest 64 version installed

Paging file: Don't know what it is, So probably not

As mention in the previous post, I just install the latest 64 version. Will see
Also, I will take care to have less tab opened at the same time.

No it uses your existing settings. The only minor problem is if you have an old single user install in the Appdata directory there may be shortcut addressing issues as it installs in Program Files (x86). Yes I know that's not where 64bit programs are supposed to be installed.

You probably do if you don't know what it is. The paging file is set up by default.
