I find many Google Chrome users complain that they cannot access Google accounts, reader, gmail, the chrome extension gallery or the chrome themes gallery due to any annoying SSL connection error 107 message. What is more, such error will stop them from visiting some desired pages. But they do not know how to fix it. Typically, the Chrome error 107 looks in the following format:
“SSL connection error
Unable to make a secure connection to the server. This may be a problem with the server or it may be requiring a client authentication certificate that you don’t have.
Error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR): SSL protocol error.”
In many cases, the SSL connection error 107 message happens when you have never checked the option properly. So, the first thing you should do is to click the Chrome spanner, then click options; click the hood and scroll down to locate & check the box “Use SSL 2.0”. After restarting your Chromes, you will soon find the error 107 message has gone.
Sometimes, it might happen due to a misconfigured proxy setting. If the above steps do not work, click “wrench” sign on the tope right of your Google Chrome; click “Options”; then “Under the bonnet” in network, click “Change Proxy Settings” and follow the on-screen steps to change your settings to a correct one.
Thirdly, you’d better make sure that you are using the latest version of the Google Chrome. That is because sometimes a bug within the program can also cause the SSL connection error 107 to happen. To make it simpler, you can directly uninstall it and then reinstall the latest version of Chrome on your PC.
After the above steps, you need to check and delete all viruses or malwares from the computer. Beside removing system files, collecting & stealing users’ information, viruses are able to reset the computer or web browser’ settings. It is quite easy for you to get a SSL connection error 107 message when the computer is severely infected by some dangerous threats. You can do this by downloading and running an antivirus antispyware program. By the way, virus infection can most of the time cause computer automatically shuts down. It is best that you should let your antivirus antispyware always running in the background.
However, some users told that the Norton Anti-virus will conflict with Google Chrome and finally bring the error 107 message to happen. If you have such antivirus program installed on the PC, uninstall it immediately from the computer. And the problem is that even when they have disabled Norton, they still get the error. So, it is best that you can turn to other alternative antivirus program so as to prevent a SSL connection error message.
Lastly, you need to check and fix registry errors so as to prevent & fix Google Chrome SSL connection error 107 effectively. The Windows registry is the store house of all the hardware & software and changes that are made on the computer. No matter whenever you install a new program, add a hardware device, all this information will be recorded within the database. Because of this, it starts getting filled with errors as time goes on. When the Google Chrome cannot locate the necessary entries to correctly display your pages, a SSL connection error 107 message will be shown immediately. Thus, what you should not ignore when facing with this issue is to completely scan the whole PC and repair all registry errors inside. This is the first assurance that you should do when trying to run the computer, all installed programs properly.
To sum, a Google Chrome error 107 can happen due to many unexpected or even a small problem on the computer. No matter whenever you get it, just clam down and follow the above steps one by one. Any one of them will solve the error instantly for you!
