Google Chrome: Fix “No data received” Error

I had a user who would type a username and password for a website in Google Chrome and receive an error that said “No data received. Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data. Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): The server closed the connection without sending any data.

Chrome No Data Received error

This problem occurred only on HTTPS websites. I tried several things including clearing the cache and cookies. Many forums recommend uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome, but that didn’t work either.

I did find a few strange extensions and plugins installed. When I disabled them, they just returned. This was not normal behavior. It was time to check for malware.

The fix – I ran a scan with Malwarebytes. It detected “Trojan BHO” was infecting the Chrome browser. Malwarebytes removed the trojan¬†successfully. After a restart, Chrome was like new. We could now access HTTPS websites without error.

If you receive the “No data received” error when attempting to access websites in Chrome and an uninstall and reinstall doesn’t work. Perform a scan and be sure to change your passwords if a virus is detected.

    Thank you so, so much. I have been looking for a solution to this problem for well over a month now. I came across other forums that suggested a utility for malware with no luck/nothing was found when I ran a scan. Then I came across this forum and thought that it wouldn’t hurt to install Malwarebytes. Turns out that it found some issues, though none that were critical. Great news is that I got resolution for the problem, that was becoming more annoying by the day. Thanks again and best regards!
