Surely many people faced this error by working in the browser on the chromium engine – Google chrome, Opera, Yandex.Browser and others. Here we will try to consider possible solutions to this error.
In general, the very description of the ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE error indicates that the server has broken the connection without sending the data. So, the problem can be a specific site that can not open and a possible solution here – just wait a while.
Another thing is if this problem starts to be observed with other sites. In this case, consider the possible solutions:
If you use different extensions, including those that substitute your IP-address (so-called anonymizers), then the problem may be in them. To disable extensions of browsers based on chromium, you need to open a new tab and enter chrome://extensions in the address bar, in the case of Yandex.Browser the address will look like this: browser://extensions.
If you find unknown to you or the notorious anonymizers in the list of extensions, then you must delete them and check the operation of the site where error 324 (ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE) occurred. These actions will also allow you to clear the browser of possible adware or malicious components.
If, for some reason, the previous ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE error method did not help, it makes sense to reset the settings to their default values. To do this, go to the settings page. You can do this by typing chrome://settings or browser://settings (depending on the browser) in the address bar.
The settings page must be scrolled to the end and click “Show advanced settings”.
The desired item “Reset settings” can also be found at the bottom of the page.
There is one more reset option for eliminating ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE, which is considered to be more cardinal, that is, all user settings will be deleted. To perform this reset, delete the Default folder located at C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Chrome\ChromeBrowser\User Data\.
Check your computer for malware and adware
If the above methods did not help to fix the error ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE, then it is likely that the computer will be infected with viruses, phishing and adware, trojans and the like. In any case, checking for viruses never hurts. Here you can use both the standard built-in antivirus Windows Defender, which is included in the system by default, and any third-party antivirus installed.
Also, you can check the free one-time utilities, designed just for such cases – the most popular is Dr. Web CureIt! It is good not only that it identifies and tries to eliminate malicious objects, but also additional features, for example, fixing the hosts file.
Be that as it may, using the above methods in 95% of cases will solve the problem with the err_empty_response error that occurs.
