I'm using Google Chrome on a Windows XP Prof SP3 machine and lately it has been crashing more often. Latest one I had about four chrome browsers open with multiple tabs and all of them shut down. The other applications running on my machine were not affected including IE.
The error message I got that time was:
"chrome.exe - Application Error" heading
"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142). Click on OK to terminate the application."
Tonight it has done so again. This time it was:
dwwin.exe - Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc000012d). Click on OK to terminate the application.
My computer had been shut down and restarted in between those messages. I have not tried reinstalling chrome. I am also uncertain whether why chrome is crashing is due to chrome or xp at this point due to the second message. I am going to continue digging around on google and would appreciate any advice or help that can be offered. I am hoping to find something better than this: http://www.raymond.cc/blog/archives/...ly-0xc0000142/
