[Solved] Google Chrome Freezes and Crashes In Windows 10

The recent Windows Creators Update (1703) has been causing problems for some users of the Google Chrome browser.  The browser will freeze or crash suddenly under normal use conditions.

The solution to this problem is obvious.  Stop using Google Chrome and start using Google Chrome.

No, not that Google Chrome, that Google Chrome.

PortableApps.com1. Download the PortableApps version of Google Chrome.

2. Place the installation file in the parent level of your Documents folder.

3. Install the PortableApps version of Google Chrome.

4. Open the folder GoogleChromePortable that the install just created.

5. Right-click on GoogleChromePortable.exe > Send to > Desktop (create shortcut).

6. Use and customize Google Chrome to your heart’s content.

No more freezing, no more crashing.

You can install GoogleChromePortable in any directory you wish.  Whichever directory you place the installation file in is where the folder will be created, unless you manually specify a different directory.

You’re welcome.

      Your welcome. Just keep in mind that Portable Chrome does not automatically update. You will need to delete the install, download and install a new version several times a year. Sorry. That’s just the nature of the beast.
