    Hello, the easiest way of fixing your problem is by updating Chrome to the latest version. Is that the only error you get? What are you using when the error occurs? Only advice I can give you is to install a stable Chrome release instead of the dev or beta.

      Mentioned my problem to a friend, and he said the same as you. It seems to have done the trick.

    Did you enabled "offline", possibly this explain the message.

    go to about:plugins, click Details in the upper right, and disable the gcswf32.dll plugin. That is the built-in one

    or uninstal and reinstal chrome.
