On my Windows 7 virtual machine, I get a completely black window (like the one below) when trying to launch Chrome or Opera. The uninstallers don't appear to work either so I can't reinstall.

Any ideas? :stare:

Joke fix--- Turn on the lights - thats why its dark :p

Maybe the VM gotten corrupted somewhere along the lines. ( thats one good thing about VM's) screw them and oh bummer -- OK drop back the original working backup back in -- We do have a backup dont you ? :nerd:


Serious something to try :) try starting Chrome in safe mode, seems its not always easy, but did find the following instructions: http://oxosocial.com/how-to-google-chrome-safe-mode-shortcut/ Basically disable any add-ins. normally I'd try disabling hardware acceleration and see if that helps. :2cents:

This particular VM only has Windows and browsers installed, so no backup :p

That worked, thanks :) would be nice to have Aero though :p
