hes-dead-jim-chrome-virusWhile Windows 10 might have already been released to the masses, there are still plenty of users who are running the Insider preview. In fact if you are using Windows 10 Insider Preview build 10525, you might be familiar with an issue that is plaguing the Chrome browser at the moment in which it would crash when opened and display the error message above.

Now the good news is that if you’re wondering when Google will get around to fixing the problem, you can rest assured knowing that they are well aware of it. This is according to a post on the Chromium message board in which Google has acknowledged the issue and has stated that they are working on a fix for it.

According to Google, “We have the problem confirmed and someone is working on it, so additional “me to” comments are a distraction at this point. Please just star the issue if you want to convey that you are affected, and if we have any questions or need additional feedback we’ll post a comment.”

It should be noted that this only affects the 64-bit version Chrome. If you run the 32-bit version you should be fine. However in the meantime there is a temporary fix for the problem which you can read for yourself below courtesy of Betanews:

Right click on the desktop shortcut to Chrome and select Properties.
Move to the Shortcut tab and click in the Target field.
Type a space at the end of the path that appears in the field followed by –no-sandbox.
Hit OK, and use the shortcut to launch Chrome.
