    Google chrome is seriously misbehaving


    Chrome has started misbehaving again....

    1. Google chrome randomly minimizes my games to the desktop only to tell me that google chrome doesnt know how to update itself. This is incredibly annoying.

    2. Google chrome switches from maximized to windowed mode randomly, and then I have to click two times on maximize to maximize it again. I have to do this maybe 10-20 times on a daily basis.

    3. Google chrome is randomly redirecting me to various websites, even if I did not click on them.

    4. Google chrome always starts in windowed mode so I have to click to click maximize everytime I want to browse the internet.

    5. Google chrome is creating a duplicate icon of itself on windows taskbar everytime I launch it.

    Thats not Chrome's problem, it's probably some low-level adware issue. Perform some scans using your preferred anti-malware.adware software and see what it comes up with.

    This one may or may not help, but it shouldn't cause any problems either way. Try deleting your DNS Cache. I use CCLeaner for that, or from an Admin Command Prompt type in the command ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter.

    I cleaned with CCleaner with ccenhancer as well as clearing the dns cache and it didnt solve anything, but reinstalling chrome seems to have solved problem 4 and 5.

    Im going to keep adwcleaner because it seems like a good program, but I would still like to solve 1 2 and 3.

    3. Google chrome is randomly redirecting me to various websites, even if I did not click on them.

    3 seems like the most serious. You may consider making a separate post in the Antivirus Forum.
