How can I stop Chrome Canary from crashing on my Windows 10 PC?

A possible cause of the problem could be the antivirus solution on an affected PC, but is isn’t yet fully confirmed. Nonetheless, if you have an antivirus solution, be sure to turn it off.

As a workaround for now, you can disable code integrity using the command line: –disable-features=RendererCodeIntegrity. This has solved the problem for some users.
