Recently I encountered an issue, which is rampant, and people complaint a lot about it.
All of a sudden, Chrome would not load. I was getting “Page unresponsive”.
This is happened to me once before, on my work computer Chrome become sluggish as molasses. Try a few of the things you find on the Internet, did not work.
Then as sudden as it started it went away. No explanation.
A few days ago, on my home computer Chrome started to behave that way. Nothing worked.
I started using Firefox again which was fine, this was a clue that the culprit was Chrome.
I know what you are going to say, there was a virus, blah, blah, blah.
Nope, there was no virus. Will not go onto how I was certain, I have AV plus other things and after checking there was no virus.
Finally, I decided to uninstall and reinstall Chrome. No luck.
What was one to do? Then it dawned on me. Why don’t I try the 32-bit version? Yes, you can still get it and it is not as much of a memory hog as the 64-bit version.
So, I did uninstall the 64-bit version and install the 32-bit version.
What do you know it resolved the issue, for a while it seemed that the issue was still there however after a couple of minutes Chrome started to behave normally.
Once again, I have no explanation.
