I do seem to have problems with it aswell.
I use chrome sometimes and what i noticed is that wehn executed chrome will crash causing explorer.exe to crash.
First i though it might be windowblinds but since i know that WB does not work great with chrome i excluded it from the start. Did undo style changes back to default to have a closer look anyways.
And yes to make this short Fences seems to be the problem.Since im a lazy as ufck, i did not create any folder portals i just got all my digital stuff on the desktop currently. ';..;'
I have 5 fences with different colors where i simply drag all of that stuff in.
Once fences is killed in the taskmanager chrome works... no crashes
Chrome is the latest version 57.0.2987.110
Winver: 1607 B 14393.953
GFX driver: GGRD WHQL: 378.92
using the powerfull IE and Edge atm hopefully there is a fix.
WB should work fine with Chrome BTW.
I would recommend updating to the latest WB build as it is possible for 10.5 to crash explorer when launching Chrome even if WB is excluding the process. This was fixed in WB 10.58.
