Google chrome problem

hey there!

i just finished with a fresh installation of windows 7 64 bi.I'm having a few problems with the OS,i installed google chrome 3 and it worked fine for a while until it dint start back on after that. After a lil search i found google chrome 5 beta...and i installed it,the thing is the browser appears but it cant log into the net and instead i get a warning - application error.

"This application was unable to start correctly (0xc00000a5). Click OK to close the application)"

i tried the registry edit fix...still no go!

thanx :sweat:

  1. the problems fixed my friends:) yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
  2. How did you fix it? I got the same error. :(
  3. This is need to know information...I was planning on running Chrome when I do my install tonight or tomorrow.
  4. Check if Google Chrome is set to work in compatibility mode. If yes, we need to disable the option to run in compatibility mode.

    To change compatibility settings manually for a program, right-click the icon for the program, click Properties, and then click the Compatibility tab.
  5. @ area - the answer was a lil tricky and simple at the same time.

    To all who are reading this - i had to edit the registry string in the windows registry. I googled it(back then) here it is -


    the other tip:

    see if in compatibility mode, the checks are removed.
  6. Don't forget to select the best answer for whomever helped you the most!

    Glad you have it running!
  7. i fixed it :) so u knw who gets the answer :D
  8. Great you've fixed it. :bounce:
    Had the same problem and checked for Compatibillity Mode, which was turned off. So I turned it on (sellecting for all users). Which made the problem worse. Now the Window popup happened not only on a particular link, but as soon as I started chrome.
    Turning Compatibillity Mode off again fixed everything.
    I didn't check the registry, but it appears that even if Compatibillity Mode doesn't show up as ticked, it must still somehow be selected in the Registry. Turning it on and off seams a quick fix without the need to edit the reg.
    Hope that this works for everyone else too:)
  9. with the new versions of chrome, this problem is far from visible...

    but even so, a dodgy win7installer causes chrome to act this way. Thus the need for registry fix and the compatibility check list
