Google employee Blair has posted a list of software applications that are known to crash the Google Chrome web browser. Among the list popular applications such as PPLive, Nvidia NTune, SpeedBit Video Accelerator or Folder Guide.
The suggested course of action is to temporarily disable the program to see if it resolves the crashes.
Google has also identified workarounds for some applications that are incompatible with Google Chrome if they are run in their default startup setting.
If you have Internet Download Manager (IDM), disable the ‘Advanced browser integration’ option within IDM (go to Options > General).
If you have NVIDIA Desktop Explorer, try removing the nvshell.dll http://www.spywareremove.com/security/how-to-remove-dll-files/
If you have FolderSize, try the fix on this site: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2900504&group_id=127365&...
If you have NOD32 version 2.7, upgrade to the latest version of NOD32 or disable internet monitoring in NOD32 2.7.
Finally malware has also been identified as known causes for Google Chrome crashes.
