What is GoogleCrashHandler.exe ?

If you use any Google product like the Google Chrome or any other tool then you are likely to see GoogleCrashHandler.exe process in your task manager. So what is GoogleCrashHandler.exe then?

GoogleCrashHandler.exe is one of the two Google processes – the other is GoogleUpdate.exe – that might be running on the computer system. GoogleCrashHandler.exe will send anonymous usage data and crash reports to Google. It is an opt in service during installation of Google software products.

GoogleCrashHandler.exe runs continuously on your computer if you’ve selected to send anonymous usage statistics and crash reports to Google for certain Google software, like Google Chrome. It helps send crash details to Google when your Google software unexpectedly shuts down. We use this data to help determine how to prevent these errors from happening in the future.

Here is how you can stop GoogleCrashHandler.exe to run automatically in background:

1. Open Google Chrome

2. Go to File Menu >> Options

3. Click the tab Under The Hood, and uncheck the option which says – Help Google Chrome better by automatically sending the usage statistics and crash reports to google.

4. Click Close, after doing as un checking this option you will not see GoogleCrashHandler.exe running again.
