Download - Freeze - Shutdown - Repeat

Hi everyone ^_^

Fast forwarding, my laptop has been acting strange.

Can't download anything now. Whatever file i download, it just freezes my web browser (Google Chrome) and then procedes to shut down my web page(s)...

This is infuriating, giving the fact, that i have important files that i need to download but i can't because my laptop just decided to act stupid on me.

I really need a hand of help here, i'm just losing hope on this machine...

Have you tried using another browser? I always have 2 main browsers (Firefox and Chrome) in case one of them stop working.

Otherwise, maybe try to reinstall chrome? It seems like a problem with the browser, no with the actual computer itself...

I don't have Modzila, so i tried internet explorer (i know, the slow one), but worked just fine.

SO why does Chrome sudently decides to freeze and shut down every time that i want to download something?

Not sure, as there can be many different factors that go into it.

I'm not too familiar with this topic, but you could always try the common troubleshooting solutions such as reinstalling Chrome, disabling extensions, or using a new profile.

Maybe reinstalling Chrome. The other 2 options were something that already tryed myself.
