    Can you recommend me what options to choose for protecting Chrome with EMET in Windows XP Home edition. (the default checking of all the parameters causes many crashes in my machine) Any advice is wellcome.

    System or Google Chrome crashes?

    Anyway, the best advise I can give you, provided I don't use Windows XP, is trial and error. Disable the mitigations one by one, and then leave disabled the ones that make the system/Google Chrome crash.

    I would disable EAF and see if that fixes things.

    Seems like they figured out your problem but wanted to add: Chrome and Firefox under EMET Tech Prev cpu spike to 50% and will not close properly when using the new ROP tools.

    :doubt:

    Try ExploitShield instead of EMET. Works perfectly with Chrome and blocks the ROP & Java exploits EMET doesn't.

    Minimum installation requirements (Browser Edition)
    Current version: 0.7 beta
    Beta software is designed for experienced users only.
    IMPORTANT: requires a logged in administrative account.

    That's somewhat a downer for me...

    * There are solid reasons for choosing EMET over some third-party thingy. Back on topic: Like HR said, disabling EAF for 'sensitive' applications usually does the trick.

    He is just recommending other possible software.
    Same for me. :D.
    No problems here using Firefox and EMET Tech Preview. I guess Chrome's sandbox is conflicting with the mitigations.

    I don't use Google Chrome myself (I use Chromium), but relatives of mine do use it, and I installed EMET 3.5 Tech Preview when it first came out, and enabled all the mitigations for Google Chrome, and it never crashed to this day, otherwise they would have complained about... that's for sure. lol They use Windows 7, though.

    So, I suppose it's also related to Windows XP, somehow?

    Anyway, glad to see the problem was solved.

    Do you have any more info on EMET and Java? I've read this before, but can't find any more info on it other than the stated fact.

    Must have been some other external conflict. Both The Fox and Chrome are now buzzing along stable and with all mitigation activated via Tech Prev 3.5.
