Chrome 90 Crashes Worldwide for Windows 10 users

Accordingly, for some of the Windows 10 users worldwide Google's desktop browser Chrome 90 crashes. Google launched Chrome 90 on 10 May 2021 with a range of new features such as an AV1 encoder, a highlight copy connection, a PDF viewer, lite-mode, etc. However, just after the launch, Windows 10 users started reporting that their Chrome 90 browser collapsed on various platforms. A poster on Reddit states,

Google kept running for me in Chrome. All pages (including Chrome pages like settings) refused to load. My extensions failed. The screen is entirely black, with a frowned folder next to the tab marked "Untitled".

You should take the steps described below to solve your problem if you have the same problem:

  • First, make sure that the Sync details at https://chrome.google.com/sync are right and passwords are shown at https://passwords.google.com.
  • Next, close every Chrome file that you open and then start File Explorer and search for: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data.
  • Now, please delete the "Local State" from the registry, and ensure that you do not want to miss your "Local State" information.
  • Finally, open the browser to see if the problem has been solved. Then open the File Explorer and look for: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data Data if the problem has been not solved
  • Rename the folder "User Data," and try re-opening the tab.

Hopefully, the problem with your chrome browser will be fixed after taking these measures. Offer to reinstall the browser if word then.
