How to Fix Chrome: RESULT_CODE_HUNG Error

The RESULT_CODE_HUNG error is one of the common errors that can be experienced in Chrome Browser. The significant fixes for errors in Chrome include hard-refreshing the web page, turning on the incognito mode, switching between the networks, deleting Chrome cache and data, disabling extensions, and switching to different DNS settings. 

Regarding the browser domain, Chrome seems to have maintained a decent stronghold in this segment. Despite several other browser alternatives, the offering from Google has proved to be the go-to choice for many. But even then, it isn’t free from its fair share of issues.

Further justifying this statement is that quite a few users are bugged by the error of the result_code_hung. As far as the plausible reasons for this issue are concerned, there could be quite a few.

Aw Snap RESULT_CODE_HUNG error in Chrome

To begin with, it could just be a temporary blip in your network connectivity, as a result of which a successful connection couldn’t be established. Along the same lines, bulky chrome data such as Cookies and Cache could also be the culprit.

In some instances, the issue might stem from a third-party extension. While the chances are rare, the Domain Name Server could also lead to this issue.

With that said, this tutorial will address all these concerns, which will also fix the Chrome result_code_hung error. Follow along for detailed instructions to fix the issue with Chrome.

Basic Workarounds

Before moving on to the slightly advanced fixes, let’s start with some basic ones that are often considered the best Kickstarter.

  • First off, hard reload the page using the Ctrl + R keyboard shortcut OR you could hold the Cmd or Ctrl key and click on the Reload reload arrow icon icon situated left of the address bar.

  • If that doesn’t work out, try accessing that website in incognito mode. To do so, use the Ctrl + Shift + N shortcut key combinations to open a new Incognito window. Then type in the URL in the address bar and see if the page can load correctly.

  • Likewise, you could also switch the connection mode from wireless (WiFi) to wired (ethernet cable). Or try switching to a different network by sharing your device’s carrier data via the Hotspot.

Verify if any of these three methods rectified the error of the Chrome result_code_hung. If your answer is in a negative tone, then here are a few other methods that you should try.

Delete Chrome Cache and Data

If a lot of temporary data accrues over time, it could conflict with the proper functioning of the browser. As a result, you should frequently delete these data after regular intervals.

If you haven’t done so in quite a while, it seems to be a perfect time, as it might also fix the underlying issue.

Here are steps to clear chrome cache and data on Chrome browser:

  1. Launch the Chrome browser and type in the below URL in its address bar:
  2. Now enable the tick-mark for Cookies and other site data and Cached images and files.
    Clear Browsing Data in Chrome Browser
  3. Hit the Clear Data button and wait for the process to complete.

Once done, relaunch Chrome and see if the RESULT_CODE_HUNG error has been fixed.

Disable Browser Extensions

In some instances, a third-party extension could cause a few issues with the loading of the websites. However, identifying the culprit could be an effort-taking task, especially if several extensions are installed.

The only way out is to disable all the extensions and then re-enable them one at a time until you can recreate the issue. Once you have identified the extension that resulted in this error, you should consider removing it from your PC.

Here are the steps to disable the chrome extensions:

  1. Open Chrome on your PC and copy-paste the below location into the Omnibox:
  2. This should take you to the list of installed extensions.
  3. Disable all the extensions by turning off their toggle button.
    Disable and Delete Browser Extensions in Chrome
  4. Now try reloading the concerned page, and if the issue has been rectified, re-enable all the extensions one at a time.
  5. As and when you can recreate the issue, remove the last enabled extension.

However, if the extensions weren’t the root cause of Chrome’s result_code_hung error, then turn your attention to other fixes shared below.

Switch to Google DNS

If there are any issues with your Internet Service Provider’s DNS server, you could try switching to an alternate one. By default, the DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) instructs the browser to pick up your ISP’s DNS address. However, you could manually instruct the DHCP to pick up one of the public DNS servers, such as Cloudflare or Google.

In this regard, Chrome comes with in-built profiles for these public DNS servers. You only need to select the desired profile and complete the task.

Here are the steps to change the DNS in the Chrome browser:

  1. Launch Google Chrome and head to its Settings page under the More vertical 3dots icon menu.
  2. Switch to the Privacy and Security section, and click on the Security tab.
    Settings tab under Privacy and security on Chrome browser
  3. Enable the Use Secure DNS toggle (if that isn’t enabled by default).
  4. Next up, switch to the With Custom radio button.
  5. Select Google (Public DNS) from the drop-down.
    Use Public DNS Service in Chrome

Doing so will set as the primary DNS and as the secondary one. Now try opening the site that was earlier displaying the error; it should now be accessible.

  1. Only YouTube is constantly showing “Code_Hung”. I cleaned up the cache settings and all that stuff, other websites works very well but YouTube on my pc can’t but in my cellphone it can. I updated my browser and still the same problem only on YouTube. I wait ten minutes and YouTube works but so slow. Maybe it’s an issue of the platform but if you can give an advice it will be welcomed.

  2. Nostante i vostri ottimi consigli non sono riuscita da giorni a togliere il problema della pagina interrotta della mia banca.Ho telefonato alla assistenza numero verde che mi ha suggerito soluzioni tipo cambiare codice cliente o usare altro programma : Windows Edge che su Windows 7 non so se si può usare. Il problema secondo me risale alla banca qualcosa che è stato modificato se no non avrei problemi di vedere la pagina integra.

    Despite your excellent advice I have not been able for days to remove the problem of the interrupted page of my bank.I phoned the toll-free number assistance who suggested solutions such as changing the customer code or using another program: Windows Edge which on Windows 7 I don’t know if you can use. In my opinion, the problem goes back to the bank, something that has been changed otherwise I would have no problem seeing the page intact.

    Your tips are excellent. I have tried them all apart from the last advanced one. I was hoping to be able to remove this error which is really a nuisance. Thanks

  4. A Youtube extension is affecting “some specific files” on Ancestry. I “know” it’s Youtube extensions because I accidently found and deleted the Youtube extensions once before. Now, I cannot find where the Youtube extensions are located. Can you help me find and delete?

  5. Got this error upon streaming my cable TV on my laptop, via cable’s website for laptop streaming, specifically MeWe TV channel. I’ve checked for all updates for the computer and all browsers, cleared all caches and cookies, and done pretty much everything suggested above. Still won’t work. Checked some other channels and they seem to be okay. I’m at a loss.
