Many users are facing following error when they try to load the new Google Chrome Browser. Due to this error they could not use Google Chrome browser on their machine. This error is coming right after they installed the Google Chrome browser. The error message says:

"Ah, Snap! Something went wrong while displaying this webpage. To continue, press Reload or go to another page."

Following is a screen shot of the error. Error message asks to reload the or go to another page but no matter what they do, they still see this error message.

Thanks to Rupesh Bhochhibhoya for solution to this problem. As per him, this problem is most probably because of anti-virus. The solution I learn is: goto properties of browser shortcut then append --no-sandbox on target line.

Like: "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --no-sandbox

then you are ready to go!!

Please post in the comment if you have further info or if the suggested solution helped you.

I am coping some suggestion from comment section for easy reference:

works well.. for the name invalid thing use only one - not two like this --no-sandbox only one like this -no-sandbox"

It's a mistake in sentence :)

Put a word like this. "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --no-sandbox

I got the solution. Put at target window as follows:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --no-sandbox

Note: after "....\chrome.exe" you have to give one space before adding "--no-sandbox"

Enjoy...

It works! But you have to add a space before the two dashes, or else you may get an error!

Ex: Correct way " --no-sandbox"
Incorrect way "--no-sandbox"

Devvie Nuis said... Sigh. DON'T run Chrome out of the sandbox!! This is what makes Chrome Extra Special! This is why hack-sites, spyware and virii cannot do anything with chrome!

They might get IN the sandbox, but not IN your system. Ergo: your system stays clean!

I'm having the same problem, if I find more info I'll post there: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Chrome/thread?tid=2523192d148a98e9&hl=en .

Peace!

  4. Thanks, it works for me too, but the solution is partial, because if I use the buttons of my multimedia keyboard, to launch the browser or search, or help, the browser open with the about:blank. I have not idea how to add no-sandbox to these shortcuts. Can I do something with my antivirus "windows defender" and AVG to allow Chrome to work normally.
