Extremely weird chrome bug - Keeps relaunching and shutting down in an extremely fast interval. 0 Recommended Answers 60 Replies 673 Upvotes

Hello. Sorry for the lengthy title, as I am unable to properly describe the problem. I have been using chrome ever since I remember and never had an issue like this. I first thought that I am infected with malware, so I did a clean install and formatted everything, the issue still reappeared. I managed to track it down, and found out that it is not actually a problem of my PC but it is a chrome related problem.
What basically happens is that when chrome is running, it tries to generate another instance of itself, and then shuts itself down. I would not mind this, had it not been minimizing my apps, and flickering my screen each time it happened. I switched to firefox and the issue does not persist.
Things I have tried:
- Clean install, formated data.
- Deleted cache, browsing data, history, downloads, everything.
- Reset to default, removed all extentions.
- Cleared my sync data on the server and proceeded to delete everything from all my devices.
The issue still persists.
Here is a short gif showcasing the issue. Keep looking at the taskbar, you will notice the chrome icon appearing and disappearing for an instance. If I am working with some other app, and have chrome running in the background, it also causes a small flicker which is terribly annoying.
Here is a gif showcasing the problem in detail.
