Google Chrome has been crashing a lot when I'm in remote desktop for about the last week - now it seems to not be working at all. I get a page that says "Aw, Snap! Something went wrong while displaying this webpage" or a popup that says the memory could not be written. Excel, Word, and my email seem to be crashing frequently as well - not sure if it's related.

  • If all are crashing then I would tend to think that it's not a problem relegated to Chrome but something with the remote PC. What troubleshooting steps have you taken?
  • >not sure if it's related
    [wide-eyed, jaw dropped...]
  • Are these apps on the machine you are remoting into or on the machine you are remoting from?
  • As for "not sure if its related" - if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck then it is a duck......
  • have you tried an old fashioned reboot... Google has a handy little taskmanger you can access from the notification area. If there are memory problems, a reboot might sort that out. Last time I had an issue like this it was .NET and windows update related.
