Crome throws ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT but all other browsers are ok.

Q: Crome throws ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT but all other browsers are ok.

Environment:
Google Crome Version 49.0.2623.110 m
Windows 7 64-bit Professional SP1

I am getting this error for any website I open in Crome:

This site can?t be reached
google.com took too long to respond.
ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT

- this has started happening recently ( was working fine before)
- do not have any problem in using other browsers like Firefox or IE.
- tried to reinstall Google Crome but error persists
- tried clearing browse data
- tried flushing dns
- tried turning off both computer Firewall and Antivirus security temp

So I am running out of ideas here as why only Crome is behaving like this and Firefox/IE are ok?

Appreciate some help here to fix the issue.
I am happy to prove any traces etc if you need (please let me know the exact steps)

Preferred Solution: Crome throws ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT but all other browsers are ok.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Which firewall or other security programs are you using? Check your computer's proxy settings; Chrome uses those.

Spouse showed me her Dell running Win 8.1, said that Chrome was closing itself.
Tried to find security program for scan, learned that it is Windows Defender (I use Win 7 on mine, running MSE).

But in the task list, I found a process called "crome.exe" running at 76% CPU!!!!! (yes, the spelling on that process is correct)

Had to use End Task twice to shut it down.

This all looks fishy to me, which is why I post here. Google search for "crome process" gets no meaningful results

Started running Defender full scan now & not complete.

Told spouse to use IE rather than Chrome for now, and it is shutting itself down just the same.

Appreciate information about what it going on.

Hello everyone

Basically recently i have noticed everytime i try to enter sites like, gelbooru, dan booru and MSPAbooru my pc takes about 5 minutes before redirecting me to a dead page saying it couldnt load it.

Avanced options says "Error Code:ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT "

The only thing these pages have in common is that they use the tag system and are image archives.

I have tried pretty much cleaning my entire browser, checking the firewall, and even running some codes in the cmd, to no results.

I have also tried using online proxies, which funny enough actually make it work and lets me enter the page.

However im not a big fan of proxies and having to get them up evne if it is a few clicks away its pretty annoying.
 

A:Err_connection_timed_out

All those sites tend to get classed as porn sites by many ISPs and as potentially dangerous sites by many antiviruses due to the amount of dubious adverts, pop ups and addons and dodgy programs that get offered

We won't assist with porn type sites here.

All I will say, is that if you can access via a proxy then it is almost certainly a block by your ISP or company if accessing from work

Hello everyone. I'm getting an ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT message when I try to go to www.amazon.com.

This happens when I use Chrome, Opera, and Firefox.
This does NOT happen on my other laptop (a Dell), so I have no idea what's wrong with my current computer.

I have already tried most of the following actions based on suggestions from this website:
http://www.incrediblelab.com/connection-timed-out-error-fixed/
In summary:
a) I checked the host file at c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc to see if www.amazon.com was listed, but it was not.
b) I cleared the browsing data for the browsers
c) For LAN settings, I've tried selecting "Automatically detect settings" and deselecting "Use a proxy server for your LAN"
d) I pinged www.amazon.com with the Windows command prompt. No problem. I then typed the following commands and restarted my computer:
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
netsh winsock reset
e) I've turned off the firewall, but www.amazon.com still times out and won't load.
f) I've tried power cycling with the modem and wireless router.
*Please help!* What else can I do? I conduct media research, so this isn't just so I can shop and watch videos for fun; I need Amazon to work on this computer because it has my other software for media research. Thank you!

Hi All

not sure if correct forum so feel fee to move.
As per one of my previous posts i have let the wife loose with a spare laptop with Win8 on it, not sure if she's hating the laptop more than me at the moment so please help before the explosion comes.

1. Need to stop the laptop switching from the start screen to the lock screen when she leaves the pc for a couple of minutes.

2. she's getting really fed up with having to enter her password everytime she goes back to use the pc.
I have gone into PC Settings, clicked users and wanted to change the sign in options there is a message there saying "Any user who has a password must enter it when waking this PC"
underneath that in orange writing is
"Security policies on this PC are preventing you from changing this setting" the Change icon is greyed out

Please can someone tell me how to change this before i end up in hospital.

I must say this is the most infuriating piece of software i've ever used and i thought Vista was bad when it was released. I took another spare laptop into work yesterday to let a few people have a play with Win8, didn't know some of the women could swear so much, overall concensus of the 20 people who had a play was "What the F**K"

Please can someone help before the neigbours start to complain about the screaming.

I have a Dell Latitude Tablet. I keep getting an error saying my graphics driver has stopped responding but recovered successfully and if let the tablet go unto sleep mode it tends to stop responding again. Sometimes when I try to wake up the tablet I get a black or black and white staticky looking screen. Rebooting fixes it and all is fine until the next time it goes to sleep for more than a few minutes. I downloaded updated drivers from Dell, didn't help. Got a Windows Update saying there were updated drivers. Tried to download and it failed saying they were already installed. So I decided to use the Refresh tool and discovered it's broken now. Demands I insert media because files are missing. Found out because I upgraded through the Windows Store I can't use those tools anymore and only people with Retail Keys can fix it. This is just beyond wrong. I should not be blocked from doing a factory reset because I bought my device with Windows 8 already installed.

My company recently upgraded the Windows applications from 2007 to 2010. I had created several Access databases in Access 2007 and they had been working for several years. However, since I have converted them from 2007 to 2010 they have been intermittently throwing me out of the projects. The only error message I get is in the dialog box suggesting sending an error message to Microsoft: “Microsoft Access has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience” and I can either send the report to Microsoft or not. Access then does a compact and repair. However, from this time on I can no longer open the forms or reports – in design, form or layout view; when I try to, it throws me out the same way. Once in a while I can open a small form but when I try to go into design view, I get thrown out again.

Typically, I am able to use the database, enter data, print reports, make changes. But then out of the blue, it just blows up. Each time they blow up, I have to go back to a backup and reent... Read more

A:Bottle Neck When running Google Crome With Core i3 2nd Gen

I have a computer that has 2 GB of RAM at 1066 MHz which is 1 yr. old, when I use google chrome, firefox and CS5 at the same time it only uses 61-65% memory, its weird that you only have one page open on chrome and it uses 200 MB memory, Are your browsers up to date? If not update it. I think it has something to do with your RAM, probably you have a memory leak from what I know. What are the extension and add-ons in your chrome that is using that much RAM? I have 32-bit W7 when its idle it uses 20% memory.

A:BSOD Semingly random BSODs Arma2/crome

Welcome hosolon to the forum, I had a look at your files and there are a few things that may be causing the problem here:

First pleas update you network driver:


Code:
NETwNs64 Sun May 01 17:33:01 2011 (4dbdd18d) 0083e505 None NETwNs64.sys
you can find updates for it here:

Intel Download Center

next please uninstall Daemon tools it is a known causer of BSODs, once it is uninstalled download and run this tool:

DuplexSecure

when the tool runs if the uninstall button is grayed out then your done and you can close the window, if not then please cluck it and let the tool run. DO NOT click the install button it will install a driver that is known to cause BSODs.

Last please update your video card driver it is very old:


Code:
kd> lmvm nvlddmkm

I am using google crome to access internet. When I click on google crome it open up 6 windows. What can I do? Need help.

A:Opens 6 windows when click on internet (google crome)

Do you mean tabs or windows?
If tabs...
Close all but the tab with the URL you want to open as your start window.
In the upper right, (below the [x] to close Chrome),
you will see an icon that is three horizontal bars.
Click this. (Left click!)
Go down to "settings" (near the bottom of the list), Left Click.
It will open a new tab.
In the second section (On Startup) you will see three options.
The third is "Open a specific page or set of pages".
Left click the link to "set pages"
Left click the button that says "use current pages"
and your current "list" will clear and become only the tab you have open.
HTH.

Hi all
 
Boopme was helping with this problem and asked me to create a new thread. Original thred below.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/493117/snap-do-removal/#entry3040076
 
 
I can't seem to get rid of this progran. Prior to Boopme's help, everytime I started Crome it would redirect to Snap Do. After completing Boopme's instructions, when I open Crome the main page opens to www.google.com (homepage), however a second tab is started which redirects to Snap Do.

Hello,

I have been to several forums but unfortunately so far no joy. I have heard you guys are good so fingers crossed! I have having a problem with my computer. I have managed to narrow it down to a problem when Microsoft Outlook (03) is running. I used this for my emails so have it opend and minimised on my screen. After it has processed the send and receive(or if in fact i am closing the program down) it clicks several times and then throws me off whatever papge i am working on. It doesnt shut anything down. Its just that when i am typing its like the mouse has clicked off screen so nothing is typing out. Very frustrating as you can imagin. So i am constantly havening to check what i am typing and click back on screen.

I work from a laptop and run Windows xp service pack 3. I run Norton Internet Security. I have run a virus scan and its clean. Although 3 weeks ago i did have trojan.brisv.a!inf but removed it as advised. i have also check both my mouse pad and my external mouse. so its definately not a mouse problem. The problem only seems to exist with Outllook open. If anybody can suggest anything then i would be very grateful. Many thanks.

This is my hijack this report:

My USB flash drive (128MB) used to work on my XP machine, but for some reason, now when I use it on the same machine, I get the message that the drive is not formatted. I don't want to format since I have files that ABSOLUTELY cannot get deleted.

Does anyone know why this happened and how I can safely fix it (without destroying any contents in the flash drive)?

Thanks,
Jacqui
 

A:USB Flash now throws format error

Well, first off, storing your only copy of important files on a USB FLASH device is not exactly the smartest course of action. Have you tried it on another machine?

To see if you can coax it back into action, try this:

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

My Compaq nx9420 is acting up. After an up to an hour of trouble-free operation, the system will seem to have window refresh issues and lagging. Attempts to start new processes including the task manager will produce this error "The program failed to initialize, error (0xc000012d)". Attempting to restart the computer will usually fail and the system has to be HARD shutdown. After restarting it works just fine until the symptoms start again.

Thanks in advance for your help.
