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.
