Google Chrome continuing shuts down my computer

I have been using google chrome, but recently everytime I use it, after a couple minutes the computer completely shuts down. I can use IE or Firefox for hours, but Chrome shuts down. Any thoughts?

what do you mean shuts down ? you "log out" of windows, or the computer behaves like it was a power failure ?

regardless, chrome does not even have the option inside it to do any of these things....

assuming this is not some hardware/device driver failure
try to do a system scan for viruses.....

i know you wanted to head "yeah, just select the option not to shut down" .. but there is none :)

The computer behaves like it was a power failure. I am using Opera now and don't have any problems with the system shutting down.

if you are a technical guy, can you please have a look at the CPU usage while chrome is running ?
just run it for a few seconds, so you don't have to reboot

also, i would check for malware on your machine.......
you can find many good utilities on www.download.com

Strange. I have the same problem, only the period is different. I use Windows 7 (I know it is an RC, but it happened with Vista too), I have Nforce 570 mobo, with Athlon dual CPU (cold most of the time, so it couldn't be the problem) X-fi extreme music, Ati radeon 3650, and hm, thsat's it. @giarell, do you have anithing similar ? Maybe it is a driver related issue...

I'm having the same issue.
 
Version - most recent
System crashes to blue screen and does a memory dump
Vista Home 64 Bit
Norton Internet Security
Chrome will cause the crash at any website. Sometimes it is as soon as I open it up, other times it may be 5 - 30 minutes.
 
I have tried reinstalling Chrome but that did not solve the issue.

Colbicide : i am not saying this is a good solution but i have seen crashes related to kr0m and norton

if you are willing to give up symantec or have a substitute, i would uninstall it, and try chrome agaim

if you are not willing to let go of symatec, i would try to see if the dev channel of chrome is more happy with norton

Well, I don't use Norton since 2002, but I have 64 bit OS, that could be the problem... on the same configuration but with 32 bit os, it never happened...

huzsolt, especially on win7, which you have, switch to the dev channel, like my prev explains at the end, and see if it solves it, let us know

I am facing similar issue on my laptop too, the issue occur when I start visiting flash content website for couple of minutes, CPU usage hit over 90% and it shutdown my laptop like power failure. Have no power failure issue when using Firefox although CPU usage hit over 90%. My laptop is using Ubuntu 10.04.

Same problem. Chrome crashes and the machine shuts down on pages with flash content. Solution - I stopped using Chrome and went back to IE. No problems after that.
