Using FF or IE, go to google, and search for RevoUninstaller. Download this, and use it to remove Google Chrome using the "Advanced" uninstall method. (Do not uninstall Avast! since Avast! doesn't cause this problem with other browsers on your computer.)

Do this by double clicking Google Chrome in the list of installed programs that Revo displays. When the next screen pops up, click Advanced (at the bottom) and click next. (or uninstall) First it will run the windows uninstaller as normal, then it will scan your PC for any registry entries left behind by google chrome, and any files it may have left behind. Make sure you delete ALL of these entries, and files.

After this is removed, restart your computer, then reinstall google chrome to see if this fixes your problem. I've had to do this before after a corrupted google chrome update. Hope this helps.

Whoa! Slow down. After uninstall avast use CCleaner as it is very safe to use. http://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
I'm not a big fan of Revo as it has been to known to create more problems than it fixes.
CCleaner is the better choice. CCleaner will also uninstall software.  :)

I discovered that the Avast Online Security extension in Chrome bring Google Maps to its knees. Disabling that extension made Google Maps MUCH quicker!

Hi garne2t,

Welcome to the Avast Forums.

Please note this thread was started September 19, 2012 and last post was on September 27, 2012, almost seven years ago.  Avast Online Security is not a part of avast real-time protection as you seem to imply but is, rather, a browser add-on, so the issue you're reporting is different from what was discussed in this topic.

Please start your own topic, especially when they are as old and obsolete as this one is.  If you care to, more information in a new topic as to what you saw, experienced, and what you did to fix it will likely help others with similar issues with AOS.
