I can't do anything at all in chrome. Nothing loads.

Unsure which version of Chrome you are using? Type chrome://help into your omnibox (where the URL is). Your version number will be listed there along with the option to update if available. 

Have you checked our known issues page? If your issue is not there, please provide a detailed description here: 
 
Suddenly I can't do anything with Chrome. The pages don't load - just blank blue pages - usually say "untitled". I've looked at various forums which say got to "settings" or type in "plugins" etc - but I can't do any of these because nothing loads. At one stage it said "cannot load shockwave flash" - but is not saying that now.
 
I don't know what version of chrome I am using as I when I type the link given above into the box it won't load. I just put 35 canaary so that I could post my question.
 
I've done a full microsoft essentials scan and all was ok.
 
I'm using IE to post this now.

Same thing is happening to me right now. I'm on windows 7 and using what I think is the latest version of Chrome.

I have just absolutely no interactivity available to me at all. I can't even navigate to chrome's internal URLs used for settings/history/etc.

Posting this in Firefox which runs normally.

I was able to fix this. I went to uninstall / reinstall chrome but received notice that I had to close all open chrome windows to do so. I already had done this.

So I went into task manager and found some weird chrome process running (something with a *.32) that was not printing anything visible to the screen. I close that, then simply reopened chrome (without uninstalling or anything) and it worked fine. It seems like it just didn't reconsider itself rebooted because this process had persisted.

I'm getting the same exact problem. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome. I used Revo Uninstaller and deleted anything belonging to Chrome when I uninstalled. I even did not sign in to Chrome to see if it was something there. Still will not load the chrome://plugins or settings or chrome. I did get cnn.com to load but when that loaded it said Could not load Shockwave Flash. I thought well maybe it's almost working but I cannot go to the plugins page. I've checked the known issues page and I also tried disabling my antivirus and firewall software. Still nothing, still won't work. I'm using Firefox right now to try to troubleshoot this problem. I'm pretty sure I had the most updated version of Chrome but I cannot tell right now since I can't load anything. I also ran a scan with my antivirus: Avast. Ran my antimalware software: Malwarebytes or something. Came up with nothing. I checked my task manager like Jerry suggested and couldn't find anything like that running. The only thing I could find was Chrome Frame running. So I quit out of that. But Chrome is still not working. Not sure what changed, it just suddenly stopped working.

Please help! I really like using Chrome...but maybe I'm gonna have to switch back to Firefox again.

It seems so far I was finally able to fix my problem. I had just simply stopped using Chrome for a couple weeks and I used Firefox but then I was really wanting my Chrome browser back so I decided to try it again. At first it worked just fine but then after about an hour or so it started doing this same thing again. Not loading anything and a new tab would just be gray and say Untitled and nothing would load. So I closed it and tried my search for answers again using Firefox and came across this thread: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=345916#c214 I followed the instructions down at the end of this thread #214 and it worked. I am posting this from Chrome. I had also uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome though, so if this fix alone doesn't work for you, try that also. Hope this helps some of you that are having this same problem. So far it's working for me.

Thank you, Jerry VanStrydonck, for your March 3rd suggestion. As soon as I went to Windows Task Manager and killed those two chrome.exe processes, things began to work again.
