I could not open my default browser which is Google Chrome. An error is re-appearing upon opening Chrome. The error is stating: Error 137 (net::ERR_NAME_RESOLUTION_FAILED): Unknown error. Other browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer are working perfectly fine. I already scan my computer for possible virus attack, but that did not help. How can I fix this error so I can work with Chrome again? Thanks.

It seems like you Google chrome browser has crashed and the only remedy will be to uninstall and then reinstall it again. Just do the following:

  • On your computer click on start, and then click on control panel from the list.
  • In the control panel window, choose programs and features by clicking on it.
  • Next click on add/remove programs and then locate Google chrome from the list of programs.
  • Click on remove to uninstall Google chrome.

Once you have done that, search for another Google chrome setup application online, download it and save it on your computer and then run the setup to install Google chrome.

It should work after you install it again.

Try to uninstall Chrome and reinstall it back but be sure to remove all of its components before reinstalling. And also, you have check for any virus but did you check for any Malware's?

Try to run TDSS Killer or malwarebytes. Download TDSS Killer and Malwarebytes.

This error might be because of a possible malware since you can still use other browser without problems. Another workaround for this is to launch your command prompt and then type netsh winsock reset as an Administrator. And then restart your computer.

I hope my solution will work for you.
