I click “Close the program”, and try a lot of time and still not working.

After Google the error, I knew the problem is because of Comodo Firewall program. It has a HIPS facility.

Let me disply the steps to solve this problem.

  1. Goto Comodo Firewall > HIPS > Settings
    Right click on the status icon, the HIPS may not be shown. If not, just choose Advanced View.
  2. Click  Detect shellcode injection (Exclusion)
  3.  Choose Add file in the list.
    Right click in the empty window box, go to Add > Files
  4. Choose file, Chrome
    Chrome.exe is located at  c:\Program Files (86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe
  5. Click OK, and OK again to confirm this adding of HIPS exclusion.

Then, I restarted Chrome, no more problems.

It is a workaround, hope Google or Comodo has their official release to solve this issue.
