0xc00000a5 Start up error with Google Chrome.



I'm having the error of Google Chrome not starting up, but only when I click a link to open it up, such as when I sign into Windows Live Messenger, and the Windows Live Today news links, whenever I click those type of links, when Google Chrome is not already running, I get this error.


But if I go to open it up in a normal fashion for example the start menu. I've searched around other sites trying to get an answer, but they all just say make sure compatibility is not enabled, which I have done and it was disabled the whole time. I have no idea what is causing this.


Thanks in advance,



a. Which version of google chrome have you installed?

I have found that this issue exists when you use the beta version of the google chrome I would ask you to install the latest version of google chrome and check.
