Stop Crashing:

If Google Chrome or any other app crashes on your MAC after upgrading to Mountain lion, try one of the following solutions.

Solution 1:

For those of you who are comfortable with Terminal, please try the following:

  • From Terminal, enter: sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force -debug
  • Reboot your Mac normally, and launch Chrome

Solution 2:

Note: Proceed with caution, try the solution 1 first, if it doesn’t work then give it a shot.

  • Reboot your Mac computer in safe mode (Follow these steps: Apple Support)
  • After the Mac has completely booted in safe mode, reboot again as you normally do.

Mountain Lion will ask you few questions like; Are you running any “system optimization” tools on the Mac? How did you install Mountain Lion on your Mac? Was it a clean install? or, Did you update from a previous Mac OS X version? Which version did you update from? You need not to worry about these as they are just for reporting purposes.
