So I have been running Chrome for a few years now with no real big issues...

But recently it has been acting funny... first the auto search capability in the address bar freaked out...figured out that clearing the browser history can fix that...

Then it would not access Gmail... getting the following:

No data received
Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data.
Here are some suggestions:
Reload this webpage later.
Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): The server closed the connection without sending any data.

I can not login to various sites using my Facebook or Google account... can not sync with chrome and my google account...

I also got some SSL error, but was unable to duplicate it...stating something about unable to verify client security? (maybe)

I have uninstalled, and reinstalled twice... also did the "remove.reg" script provided by google support to remove all Chrome registry entries... restarted in between uninstall and new install...

I am on a corporate network using a VirtualMachine.. so I am wondering if that has anything to do with it...

Suggestions or ideas ?

You forgot to say what responses you're getting from other browsers. And whether other people using Chrome are having the same problem. "Corporate network" implies that there are lots of you. You may need to talk to the IT folks. Or, ahem, talk to the person who talks to the IT folks, depending on how your location is managed.

I did happen to another co worker next to me... and the other browsers are working just fine.

It is also happening on my MAC via Chrome as well...

A quick google would seem to indicate that this could be related to NAT/Router settings, or possibly by some internet protection suite like Norton. I'd start by talking to your corporate IT guys to see if something has changed recently. You might also try disabling any internet protection suite to see if that fixes it.

On a corporate network? I seriously doubt the poor guy is able to do so much as change a font preference :(

I get some spammy ads when browsing with Chrome, but when i browse with firefox or opera i see normal adsense ads. Why is that?
