Hi @KinkyNika84

The error ReleaseSRWLockExclusive is a critical program related error at lethal level. This means the release chrome version have unfixed bug. So try other or previous Version.

I just downloaded it and it works fine. Here is the last version :
If It still not working, your computer maybe infected by a virus.
Download ZHPDiag :
Put it on the Desktop
Run "ZHPDiag3" as administrator (right click > run as admin) to install.
Run Scan and then Clean
Restart your computer and then try to open Chrome again.

"I wonder if another program crashes what will be the next movement as windows xp support has stopped many months ago"
Download XP SP3, then do your Windows updates. Even though support has finished, all the old relevant updates are still available.

Make sure your Windows XP version is fully patched and updated to Windows XP Service Pack 3.


could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll
Means that the application is not written for whatever version of the operating system (KERNEL32.DLL is a core Windows file) that you have installed. If you know you have the correct major version (i.e., XP, Vista, 7, 8), then this usually indicates that software requires an older or newer minor version (service pack). Tentative research on DecodePointer suggests you need a newer version.
