Fix – Google Chrome STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH Error Code

As of writing this blog post, there’s no official solution or update with fix rolled out by the Google. In the meantime, to fix this issue, we came up with a quick workaround which you can use. Here’s what you need to do:

In the Start menu search bar, you need to type regedit and when it appears in the search results, click to open it.

When UAC dialog box appear, click Yes to continue.

In the Registry editor, you need to go to following key: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome

RendererCodeIntegrityEnabled dword 32 bit value

In case, you won’t find Chrome key, then create one under Google.

On the right side, you need to create DWORD 32-bit value called RendererCodeIntegrityEnabled and make sure its Value data is set to 0.

RendererCodeIntegrityEnabled set its value data 0

Close everything and reboot your computer.

After doing this, you will no longer see Aw, Snap! page with error code: STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH
