If a software compatibility problem have you tried the advice to make programs work with CIS?:
Couldn’t find any help for this.
Any software except CIS/OS involved? If so - name, & exact version:
Any other information, eg your guess at the cause, how you tried to fix it etc:
According to the windows event log the crash is caused by guard32.dll which belongs to CIS
Any Chromium browser that is based on a version before 45 works fine.
I’ve completely uninstalled (and i mean completely) and reinstalled Chrome 45. Didn’t help.
