Chrome browser Switches Window Upon Opening

May 23, 2010 at 11:45:47
Specs: Windows 7
Normally, you open a browser and type in your query.

But when I open Google Chrome browser, the highlighted "window" automatically switches to the desktop or taskbar or something else. This means that every time I open Chrome, I have to then click to reselect Chrome as the highlighted window.

Does anyone know what might cause this, and how to solve it?

It could be related to another program that is running, or even your antivirus program scanning the info sent back to your browser. Shut down unneeded programs to see if that helps, and check Chrome support site and your AntiVirus program's support site to see if there are any issues with them 'playing nice' together or not. If everything worked until recently together and you have not done any updating to either of these, you could roll back system restore to a prior date when all was running good together.
Let us know what you have tried, if any worked, and more details if you need further help on this.

Thanks for the reply, but no dice here.

I don't use an antivirus, and the problem is only with Google
Chrome. Problem only started happening with Chrome once I
downloaded it, and I do not have the same problem with
Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari (for Windows). Can't really
think of any other software (passively or actively running) that
would be interfering...

Any other suggestions?

First, if you are connected to the internet, you need an antivirus program and often a utility to protect against other adware/malware. Why do you need four different browsers? I used IE for many years and for the last few years, I have mainly used Firefox. You don't really need anything else.
If it started as soon as you installed it, and you absolutely want it, go to Google Chrome's site and seek out support issues there, or ask their support people. This sounds like a problem inherent in the program and is shouting for an update, infact they might be working on it.

I have AV and registry-protecting software which I run at my own
leisure, because I do not like resource-hungry AV programs
always running in the background.

I have four browsers because I am a webmaster and I have to
check my site(s) in each to ensure viewing compatibility for
those users.

I will head over to Google. Thanks for the attempts.
