    My laptop worked fine untill I downloaded google chrome. About 5 minutes after it got installed the laptop crashed. It boots fine and I can login like normal. But after that the windows explorer continues to restart every 1-2 seconds. It takes about 1 sec for it to restart and I can't do anything on the computer except use the taskmanager.
    I have tried to restart explorer but it doesn't work. It also appears to be 2 copys of explorers running all the time.

    Any help is very appreciated!

    If you can see the power button on the login screen, hold down the shift key while you click Restart then choose troubleshoot. Choose Advanced options, System Restore, and restore the PC to before you installed Chrome.
