Dear Jean_Moore,

To get rid of this problem (Aw, Snap! Error message), follow these steps:

There are few anti-virus or firewall applications which may cause problems in Google Chrome’s operations.

You have to change the settings of your anti-virus or firewall for Google Chrome.

Once the working goes smooth then u can re-enable the applications.

The conflicts usually arise with McAfee Enterprise, Spyware Doctor, McAfee Virus Scan and Comodo firewall


Open the Google Chrome. Click the “wrench” icon on the browser toolbar. Select “Tools”. Select “Extensions”. Now “Disable” the extension you want to disable temporarily. Now close the page and open new page.

You may again enable the extension, any time you want.


Run a whole-computer-scan with latest registered version of AVG Anti-virus.


If still you see the same error message then create a new user profile by following steps:

1. Exit Chrome.

2. Now open the "Default" folder. That can be found here:

Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%Local SettingsApplication DataGoogleChromeUser Data

Windows Vista and Windows 7: %LOCALAPPDATA%GoogleChromeUser Data

Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default

Linux: ~/.config/google-chrome/Default

3. Once found, rename the folder as "Backup default."

4. Again restart Chrome and check.
