Windows 7: Problems with Google Chrome

Problems with Google Chrome

Have been using Chrome for a few weeks now and like its speed but it has started acting 'flaky'.

If I click on a dialogue box arrow I get a popup (shown in the attachment) saying basically that the prog has made an attempt to load the C runtime library incorrectly. This will popup for each letter I type in the dialogue which can be frustrating!!! It happens mainly when I try to post in forums. Using Firefox now so not sure if it would happen on this forum but the ones I frequent use vBulletin.

Any ideas. I've tried the usual uninstall - reinstall a few times and have now given up.

Malwarebytes only found an old prog (freezip.exe) which is not installed but is stored on my backup drive. WMP plugin is not installed.

Doing a Google search there are lots of sites recommending a registry clean. Do you recommend this?

Done quite a bit of on-line reading and it is a not uncommon problem with lots of theories on how to fix it. Have re-installed Chrome and got the pop-up on starting but with a restart it is working OK.
