Is it a known problem?
I have Win XP, Chrome Version 29.0.1547.57 m, Avast 8.0.1489.

When I load for example page, then the page crushes constantly (on some other sites it crashes from time to time).
Crashes happenes only on Google Chrome with Script Shield enabled. Everything is ok if Script Shield is disabled or I use other browser than Chrome.
Crashe looks like Google "Aw, Snap!" page is loaded instead of page you would like to.
In Google help it is written that this means page crash: You may see the "Aw, Snap!" message if a webpage crashes unexpectedly.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Hi Polonius,
Hmm, I'm not sure what you want to say by these links. Anyway I don't have any shields alerts, I only have page crashes if I use Chrome and Awast Script Shield is on.
Some other pages are also crashed from time to time.
