What to do to solve status_access_violation

One of the error messages that occurs when surfing the Internet, usually with Google Chrome is "status_access_violation": here's what it means and how to solve it

Those who surf the web know that the Internet certainly does not lack forums where users can turn to solve this or that problem. Among the most anomalous ones, and maybe among the least known, there is also the one identified with the code status_access_violation. An annoying error message, and consequent alarm bell, that usually appears on Chrome, the popular web browser from Google. However, not everyone knows how to solve the status_access_violation problem in Chrome, and most importantly, what it means.

This is why a guide could prove to be a valuable ally should you encounter this bug while trying to access a certain page online. Before we start, let's make it clear right away that the glitch tends to occur when an undefined program code is registered for memory without warning: sometimes Google closes it, recognizing an improper use of code management. Not only that, the error is completely harmless for your device, and simply indicates poor code management.

status_access_violation: all the options to fix the error

The status_access_violation problem is therefore largely solvable, and it occurs on Google Chrome and other browsers based on the Mountain View company's. For example, the new Microsoft Edge is also based on Chromium, so this type of warning message will be very similar between the two platforms. Generally, to get rid of this critical issue, the most indicated actions are to restart the browser or even directly your computer. Then there are other less immediate remedies, which must necessarily be explained in order to be performed correctly by any user. Let's see them now in detail, so that we can be prepared in case the error occurs during our surfing sessions on the net.

Download and update your browser to the latest version

It may seem trivial, but if your browser is not working properly, it could be outdated, or directly unsupported. It is therefore advisable to keep your browser up-to-date in order to navigate to its full potential and to take advantage of the different features made available by the various manufacturers. In addition, frequent updates will help you protect your computer from the latest and, unfortunately, most sophisticated security breaches. To update your browser, in this specific case Chrome, first of all go download its latest configuration from the official Big G website: click on the install button, wait until it finishes and immediately check if the problem has been solved or not. More conveniently, there is an option to check for updates from Google Chrome itself. To proceed, you have to open in the address bar URL of your browsing browser the address chrome: // settings. Then click on "About Chrome", then let it check for currently available updates and possibly put them for download.

Disable extensions and plug-ins

Almost all web browsers out there, including Chrome, allow you to improve their functionality by installing extensions, also known as add-ons. While certainly very useful, they might be unwanted or of dubious, and potentially harmful, origin and therefore should be eliminated or disabled, so as to understand which ones are creating problems. So open Google Chrome, click on the options, you'll recognize them because they are in the shape of three vertical dots, and once in the menu select the item "More tools". At this point, click on "Extensions" from the side menu and disable the button to disable all installed browser extensions.

Rename the browser executable

In the past, when faced with a status_access_violation error, renaming the browser executable file, namely chrome.exe, was effective as well. It does not always solve the problem, but it is worth giving it a try by following a series of precise steps. As a first step, right-click on the Chrome icon on your desktop; now select the "Open file location" option; in the location, search for chrome.exe so that you can rename it to your liking; finally, reopen Google's signature browser and check the website that was returning the anomaly.

Open another browser

Some of the add-ons you are interested in may not be available or compatible with the browser you are using. It might be a good idea to give a chance to another platform for surfing the web, among the many on the market. The aforementioned Microsoft Edge is currently quite popular with users, and has proven to be much more reliable than the previous Internet Explore, now retired. Chromium and Firefox are also very convenient: the first is similar to Chrome, but much more streamlined, and we can then log in with our Google account to retrieve data, while the second allows you to import and export data from another browser, allowing you to work without any problem.
