Google Chrome is a browser that many of us use. Even though it is very popular, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have any flaws. In some moments, this browser could be so slow that any work in it is practically impossible. Or, it can be attacked by the virus that changed the response of the Google Chrome pages. Some of the ways to prevent these issues is to remove unnecessary add-ons or delete your browser history. But, what if Google Chrome suddenly stops working? A sufficiently large number of users complaints about this problem. This guide will show you what to do if Google Chrome not responding.

What To Do If Google Chrome Not Responding
So, if your Google Chrome cannot be closed by pressing the appropriate button, then you should try to close it by using “Task Manager”. This is the way to open Task Manager: press the keyboard shortcut CTRL + SHIFT + ESC (works for Windows 7 and 8 and 10).
You will see in “Task Manager” multiple processes of Google Chrome. Click on any of them, and then click on the button “End Task”. The system will ask you if you really want to end this process. Agree with the action by clicking on “End task”.
After that, the browser’s work should be completed. But, in the practice, it is not always the solution. Sometimes people complain that Google Chrome cannot be closed, even in the Task Manager. If this happens, then most likely the system is infected with a malware. Download the free program, install it and click on “Start scanning”.
It will find any malicious software and it will remove them. After cleaning, you should try to use the “Task Manager” again.
In some cases, the user can’t close Google Chrome and the problem could be just one opened tab. Most likely, it is not associated with the virus, so what you should do:
In the browser, press SHIFT + ESC, which will open Google Chrome “Task manager”. If it can’t be opened that way, click the button in the form of three lines at the top-right corner of the browser and then select “More Tools” < “Task Manager.”
Then select the tab, click on it and then click on “End Process”.
