Chrome is a fantastically fast browser that lets you enjoy the best that modern web browsing has to offer. However, it does serve up a few kinks every now and then. There are many ways to get around most of these, such as when Google Chrome keeps freezing, while others are hard to deal with. Following is a look at two of the most annoying errors you can encounter while using Chrome, as well as methods to solve each.
This error in Windows 8 can come up while you are installing Chrome for the first time, or launching it. It leaves the browser unable to open new pages, and is accompanied by one or more of the following symptoms.
This error in Windows 7is a networking issue that is actually worse than when Google Chrome keeps freezing mid-work. For starters, it renders the browser unable to get on the internet, and displays the following message: Error code: Error 138 (net::ERR_NETWORK _ACCESS_DENIED): Unable to access the network.
The first thing to do is check that your internet connection setup is still solid. To that end, examine the Ethernet cable connection or the wireless connection status. After making sure the connection is fine, and getting the error message once again despite this, use the following method to troubleshoot.
Sometimes, it is a third party antivirus that is blocking Google Chrome from connecting to the internet, so check if your resident antivirus software has a list of blacklisted programs, and whether Chrome is on it. If yes, remove the entry by providing confirmation of administrator privileges.
These are some of the ways in which you can resolve Error 0xc00000a5 and Error 138 in Windows 8 and Windows 7 respectively. Make sure to create a restore point before taking these steps, and if you encounter an unexpected issue while carrying out the troubleshooting steps, feel free to call us on 844-202-8213 for immediate assistance. Our team of certified experts will get on the problem right away and fix it in minimal time, ensuring you can get back to whatever you were trying to do when the annoying error first showed up.
You have probably had to put up with a few issues since you first started using Google Chrome. While it is the fastest browser out there, Chrome also drags in problems that you would rather not have to deal with, especially when you are trying to get serious work done. For instance, Chrome constantly crashing can prevent you from something as simple as checking your mail.
Google Chrome sometimes takes on extensions without your permission that you cannot uninstall later, and some of these persistent troublemakers are marked as “Installed by Enterprise Policy”. Yet these are often adware or other pop-up programs that somehow crept in and set up shop next to legitimate extensions. Most of the time, they are part of a bundle when you install recently downloaded software. The only reason they get past you is that you do not pay attention to the installation prompts. This makes the use of the Custom Installation option a logical move whenever you are setting up a new program in your PC. Not only does it stop unauthorized changes to your web browsers, it also prevents the installation of extensions that could potentially be adware. These are just as bad as, say, Chrome constantly crashing.
The following steps will let you remove any extension that is marked as Installed by enterprise policy.
Check if you installed any new software recently, and remove those by heading to Add/Remove Programs and selecting Uninstall. Sometimes this removes the extension as well. Following are the steps you should take based on your OS version.
Right click on the left end of the taskbar, and when the Quick Access Menu comes up, choose Control Panel. From the window that appears, select Uninstall a Program. You can sort the programs based on installation date and remove the ones that are most recent. Select these entries individually and hit Uninstall.
Hit Start and select Control Panel. From the window that appears, select Uninstall a Program. Seek out any recently added software by sorting based on installation date, and remove them individually.
Hit Start and then select Settings and Control Panel. Find Add or Remove Programs and click on it. Click on Programs and Features and from the list that comes up, identify and select the recently installed programs, then hit Remove.
After the unwanted software has been removed, bring your browser window back up and check the extensions. If the Installed by Enterprise Policy extension still has not gone away, continue with the following steps.
If the above steps do not suffice to completely remove the Installed by Enterprise Policy extension, or if you are struggling with Chrome constantly crashing, get in touch with our tech support experts on 844-202-8213. Our certified professionals know their way around most browser problems, and will help to resolve your issue in minimal time.
When trying to open a website on Google Chrome sometimes an error page lands up denoting that something may have gone wrong on the web server, not the browser. According to the website you are visiting, this error may be shown as 500 Internal Server Error or something else. Since this error is website-generated, one could come across it on any browser or OS, including Google Chrome.
In most cases, you will have to report the issue to the site administrators if you already have their contact details. Even though the error is caused by, perhaps, the programming of the site, the below troubleshooting steps may help, so try them one by one. Even when the temporary issue Internet Explorer not responding pops up on Windows PC, you can fix it by force quitting the browser on Task Manager or by updating it to the latest version. So, Chrome users should clear the possible causes for the server error on their end as well.
These steps should fix the issue you were facing, if it is not on the programming site, of course. In case you come across Internet Explorer not responding or any other browser issues, contact our technical support team on the toll-free number to get a timely response.

Some time back, most of Chrome’s problems boiled down to a single question: “Why does Chrome keeps crashing?” This issue has been resolved with new, better-built versions of the famous software, but Google Chrome still serves up problems. One example is when it launches annoying and invasive notifications from random sites.
These come up in a corner of the screen accompanied by alert noises, and can start getting on your nerves within the first week. The setting is made when you visit a new website and a prompt window asks permission to start giving you updates. If you are really busy, you may click OK, but for a lot of people, that is the wrong move. Controlling these pop ups afterwards is not something the average user is familiar with.
You may also want to disable Google Now as an extra step. This is the service, which can turn out to be a disturbance.
The matter of notification bombardments is as relevant these days as the question “Why does Chrome keeps crashing?” once was. The above steps should be enough to solve the problem you have encountered. If not, get in touch with our expert browser support team over the toll free number for advanced troubleshooting or start a live chat session now!
Many things can lead to a low internet connection, such as bad service, weak Wi-Fi, or unstable 4G connections. Browsing the internet on one of these using Chrome can be a headache, but that is not as bad as having your downloads stop before they complete. It is even worse than that time you had to Google “Why does Chrome keeps crashing?”, and hits a lot harder when the file you are trying to download is huge. It is possible to resume the process, but each time you do that, the download starts from scratch.
Now for some good news: you can restart downloads from the exact place you left off. Some other browsers already let you do this, but with Chrome, you will need to use a workaround. Whatever fragment you have downloaded will be used as the starting point for the download.
Go to the browser window, type chrome:\\downloads in the URL bar, and hit Enter. Find the download, right click it, and choose Copy Link Address.
This was a look at how to resume a download in Chrome from where you left off. Having to Google “Why does Chrome keeps crashing?” can be annoying, but nowhere near as much as a continuously resuming downloads that drop off.
Mozilla Firefox verifies the certificates of websites that support secure browsing. If Firefox cannot validate the security certificate of multiple sites, you might run into an error page that denotes the issuer of the certificate is unknown to Firefox. Consequently, your connection to the website is not secure. If the error pops up on multiple legitimate websites that allow financial transactions, refer to the first two steps below. If it is specific to a particular website, read on for troubleshooting steps for SSL errors.
If you come across such errors, it is also likely an antivirus suite’s scanning secured connections feature has replaced the legit site’s certificate with its own. If that is the case, you should disable the antivirus software’s feature from its settings.
Malicious software can not only cause Firefox freezes every few seconds but also the SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER error. In fact, some malware types intercept secured web traffic on a browser and cause the said error message to appear on multiple sites. To clear the browsing inconvenience, scan for and remove malware on the computer.
This step is applicable if the error pops up while browsing on Firefox over a public network. If the description of the error suggests that an intermediate certificate is not found, enter its hostname into an online service that tests SSL web server’s legitimacy. If the third-party SSL testing page returns Chain issues: Incomplete, a legit intermediate certificate is certainly missing. If that is the case, inform the website about the missing certificate. To get the description, click on Advanced button on the web page that states the connection is not secure.
If the description suggests that the certificate missing issue on a website accessed over a private network is due to the fact that it is self-signed, bypass the error with the below steps. This can be done provided the intranet website allows adding an exception for visiting the site, despite the certificate not trusted by default by Firefox.
If you still come across Firefox freezes every few seconds issues or any other SSL errors, contact a browser support team to fix the problem.
Script errors interrupt web pages from loading up properly on Internet Explorer. In case it appears on more than two pages while surfing the web, follow the below troubleshooting steps for the script error. After you try each of the troubleshooting steps mentioned here, open the web page in which you have come across the error previously. In case the web page does not load up properly on IE browser, get in touch with a browser support team for help.
Follow the below steps to ensure Active scripting, Java, and ActiveX are not disabled. If any of these features are blocked on Windows, it might prevent web pages from loading up on IE. To avoid that, you have to reset the security settings following the below steps.
The temporary internet files folder has the cached web pages and other content to load a website quickly on Internet Explorer the next time you open the same page. However, if too much temp files get stored on the folder, it may cause some display issues while opening web pages on IE. Hence, you must regularly clear the temporary internet files.
Usually, this advanced step will fix even Internet Explorer not responding issues. If your graphics card supports the hardware acceleration, change the feature to software rendering on Windows 7 to resolve the script errors as well. For that, follow the below steps.
If you still come across web page not loading issues, script errors, or Internet Explorer not responding errors going forward, contact browser service professionals to get tips to prevent it altogether.
While surfing the web, people come across the frustrating Internet Explorer not responding error message; the same goes if IE cannot display a web page popups. These two are the most commonly encountered errors in the default browser of Windows. Some of the troubleshooting steps mentioned below are more or less the same as for Internet Explorer not responding issues, which is especially the case with disabling the browser add-ons.
This works if the web page failing to load fully has to do with the add-ons installed in IE browser. To detect that and disable add-ons, follow the below steps.
If that fails to resolve the “web page cannot be displayed” error, see to it if your internet connection is working fine.
Check the modem, wireless, router, and other settings to ensure that they are working. If such settings are ok, double-check the PC’s IP address following the below steps.
If that is not the starting letters of IP address shown, see to it if the browser is configured to Work Offline mode.
In case you come across Internet Explorer cannot display the web page error in future, get in touch with browser tech support for a timely response.
Users of Google Chrome often encounter an error message saying, “Waiting for Proxy”, especially while trying to open a website. Much like Chrome constantly crashing, even taking too much time for a web page to load up fully can cause much annoyance to those surfing the web. However, there are several steps to resolve the error on Chrome. Prior to proceeding with the below steps for that, ensure that the website or web page you are trying to open is not appearing fully only in Chrome.
If the website or page loads fully in other browsers, launch the Chrome tab in Incognito mode by pressing and holding down Ctrl, Shift, and N keys. If the website returns with 404 Not Found error message on incognito window, you will have to clear browsing data of Google Chrome. For that, press and hold down Ctrl, Shift, and Delete keys on an active Chrome tab, and choose Clear Data from the window that pops up. Note that this step might also fix Chrome constantly crashing issues.
It is also seen that “Waiting for Proxy” error occurs because of IP preference change from IPv4 to the other configuration. In case your system has configured IPv6 address, it will first try that, even though if it is assigned automatically without a proper gateway. Once this particular connection gets timed out, the system will try to establish the connection with IPv4 instead, and the web page will load without any glitches. So if clearing the browsing data fails to resolve the “Waiting for Proxy” error on Chrome, follow the below steps to fix it.
This should fix the “Waiting for Proxy” error on Chrome. However, if you are still facing the issue, or need help with Chrome constantly crashing problem, get in touch with a browser support technician for advanced troubleshooting.
