Hi
What I mean by hanging is that for about a week now if I click on Google Chrome the little blue circle thingy just goes round and round endlessly and nothing else happens. Simply can't get the browser to open. Have done a cleanout of my computer. Nearly all other websites are behaving normally. I clicked on Google Chrome Help button but got the same non-response. Any ideas please? Thanks heaps :)

Have you tried installing an updated version? http://www.google.com/chrome

The problem sounds strange, do any webpages load?

Bruja: if I click on Google Chrome the little blue circle thingy just goes round and round endlessly and nothing else happens. Simply can't get the browser to open.

So it's the browser not opening or a web site not opening? Or are seeing those other "websites behaving normally" in another browser?

Completely uninstall the browser then reinstall it - making sure you have the latest version.

Maybe you are running a personal firewall and blocked by accident. Chrome updates itself frequently, most free personal firewalls will see each update as a new program and prompt the user to confirm/deny it. Easily missed.
