    I've used Chrome for ages in both XP and in Win 7 and never had this error, in fact never even heard of it until you posted. But after reading some of the reams about it on the net, and it being abundantly clear there is no single cause, my advice would be to forget Chrome for the time being and use something else. Unless a system or image restore can fix it?

    What version of IE? It isn't noted for being slow, in fact version 9 is currently about the fastest browser around, but it's not available for XP.

    By all means try Firefox, or perhaps an IE based browser such as Crazy Browser, which is reputedly quite fast. You can have several browsers on your system, you aren't confined to one.

    Just faced the same problem, found out its cuz of Siteadvisor extension

    it had seemed to have updated itself both on firefox and chrome ..

    firefox worked fine .. but chrome ended up giving this above error

    go to tools in the chrome options and then click extensions and 'disable' site advisor

    worked for me .. will try to reinstall site advisor on chrome again cuz i like to know the ratings of the sites i visit .. on re-enabling that darned error comes back

    anywho .. lets hope a reinstall of site advisor will let me use it on chrome as before ..

    hope this helped ..

    Start FF in safe mode by doing the following:
    In the run box type
    firefox -safe-mode
    I assume you are running either Vista or Win 7 because IE 9 won't install on XP.
    Please mention what version of windows you are using.

    You were to launch the safe mode of Firefox not reboot to windows safe mode.

    I don't use google chrome so I can't help with that, only Firefox.
