    • Create New Chrome Profile: If your chrome profile is corrupted then also your chrome might crash often. In this situation, you have to create new profile.
      1. Launch chrome, click on chrome's menu and then from drop down select "settings" option or type "chrome://chrome/settings/" in address bar and press enter.
      2. Search for user section in settings page and then click on "add new user".

      3. After that pick a avatar and nickname for the new user profile and start using that profile by default.

      4. Restart chrome and check if your chrome is still crashing. With high probability chrome will not crash when you use new profile. But if it still crashes (which will rarely happen) then look into next section, of fixing system files.
    • Fixing System File related Issues: Sometimes system files get corrupted, which can indirectly corrupt chrome files. So, we have to fix system files.
      1. Launch command prompt as administrator. By right clicking on command prompt and then selecting "run as administrator".

      2. Type SFC.EXE /SCANNOWin command prompt and press enter.

      3. If there are any issues then windows will fix it automatically. Once scanning is complete, your chrome crash issue should be fixed.
    To addon, if your chrome is still crashing then try reinstalling chrome. If it doesn't fix your problem, then I guess it will be due to hardware issues related to RAM. So, please do memory diagnostics using memory diagnostics tools. It will report all the issues related to it. If it reports anything about overflow of memory, then please upgrade your RAM. I hope this tutorial was worth reading and helpful. :)
