Google Chrome Problem


The Teacher

Likes # 0

For some reason Chrome has started to run really slowly and I cannot access websites from the address bar. I can access my homepage on start of Chrome and I can access it then from home icon. I can access websites if I do a search for them and then click the link but can't access them from favourites.

I really don't want to go back to IE if I can help it. I did install some apps from webstore but have since uninstalled them as I thought that might be the problem. I am also getting a lot of "page unresponsive" messages.

Thanks

The Teacher

Go incognito! If pages are more responsive then it could be either an extension or bloated cache.

See here for some more info and tips

Are we looking at some Chrome spamming in these two chrome threads. From a Chrome forum maybe

From two members with a total of 15 years membership I think it doubtful.
