    Default Why did Chrome stop working?

    A few weeks ago my installation of Chrome, with no installation of other software having preceeded, just stopped pulling up sites. I fire it up and it immediately says ...
    This webpage is not available.

    The webpage at http://www.google.com/ might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.




    More information on this error


    if I look at the 'More information on this error', I see...

    Below is the original error message
    Error 2 (net::ERR_FAILED): Unknown error.


    I have read other threads and find nothing helpful in addressing the problem.
    I have uninstalled and reinstalled twice. IE works perfectly. The network/internet connection is fine, but it is acting like it (the browser) is not connecting to the network. Any clues or ideas???

    Thanks!

    Using Chrome version 3.0.195.27. I tried all that you listed and still same results, although after clearing out the folder it did initally come up with the default screen that has thumbnails of previously visited sites and the two that were shown were both Chrome related sites so I assumed that was equivalent to the 'welcome to Outlook' email message you get automatically get after installing MS outlook. A sort of welcoming to the s/w. Anyway, it's still broken.

    Try turning off your firewall.

    I have tried all of the suggestions I have found and nothing seems to work. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times and always come back to the same problem. IE works fine but it sucks and I don't want to use it. Since this started "all of a sudden", flipping between tabs, I have not turned off my firewall to check that out. I have run registry and malware checkers and they come back clean. Any other suggestions? I really do like Chrome and would love to continue using it.
