Chrome Version: I just redownloaded chrome today so its the most current. i dont know how to check.

Operating: System Windows 7

Extensions: none

Since about 2 to 3 days ago i haven't been able to download anything at all. any file, picture, movie, text or even a chrome extention which makes this even more strange. if i try to download anything. the bottomw icon of chrome starts to get that green download thing, but nothing is downloading. if i try to close chrome after i tried to download something. it says a file is being downloaded am i sure i want to close. even though there is nothing downloading. it wont even let me try to open chrome again until i kill the process after having tried to download something.


i already tried to restart my computer and reinstall chrome. any one know what more i can try?

or if any one knows another place i can ask this question. not being able to use chrome really hinders me.

i just found something very very interesting. I opened up chrome and pasted a link to where i had an image i was gonna test download. since it was an immediate open, paste, go, download attempt. it actually started up the download. it was only a 500kb picture, but it froze at around 400. i tried doing it a little faster and it actually downloaded the 500kb picture.

is there a reason why if i let chrome on for over a minute my files dont download? heres another thing thats strange, i choose Browse in folder and it didn't work or so i thought. after about 5 mins my downloaded file popped up in the folder.


its not a problem with my laptop being slow. im running league of legends with everything on highest settings. i know its not a demanding game. also the problem is really recent.
