I am running the latest versions of Avast Free Antivirus and Google Chrome. I turn off behaviour shield and Chrome runs fine. I turn it back on and the Chrome window appears and just hangs permanently without loading. I tried making Chrome a 'trusted process' in 'expert settings', but that didn't help at all. I also tried removing all extensions from Chrome to no avail. I installed Avast after Chrome and Chrome seemed to work prefectly fine for a few weeks, so I have no idea why the problem started. I have read about a few conflicts with Chrome and various antivirus products since recently reseraching this, but have have found no solution that works for me yet. I am running Windows XP MCE 2002 SP3 32 bit. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Hello -
Please remove (uninstall) avast! from Control Panel > Add / Remove, now follow the advice from Avast Experts -
Uninstall Utility From Avast home page -
Sometimes itīs not possible to fully uninstall and remove all traces of avast! the standard way - using the ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS in control panel. In this case, you can use our uninstallation utility aswClear.

How to uninstall our software using aswClear:

1. Download aswclear.exe on your desktop
2. Start Windows in Safe Mode >> (if you are not sure how, please ask)
3. Open (execute) the uninstall utility
4. If you installed avast! in a different folder than the default, browse for it. (Note: Be careful! The content of any folder you choose will be deleted!)
5. Click REMOVE
6. Restart your computer

Download Microsoft Security Essentials Antivirus from this direct link >> http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=183489
Try M.S.E. for a few days and see if your problems still exist.
If the problem still exists Uninstall Chrome and try Internet Explorer for a few days -

Thank You -
