Microsoft yesterday released a new cumulative update for
devices running Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version 1803).
The update bumps OS build number to 17134.137 and it introduces
a long list of fixes. According to the release notes, the
update also fixes Google Chrome crash issue.

It appears that Microsoft was aware of the crashing issues with
Google Chrome on Windows 10 April 2018 Update and deploying the
patch should fix this unexpected behaviour that occurred
for no clear reason.

Chrome (67.0.3396.79+) to stop working on some
devices,” Microsoft explains in the changelog.

Windows 10 cumulative update is all about bug fixes. The
update also resolves a glitch in Microsoft Edge that may
cause the browser to stop working when it starts the
download of a font from “malformed (not RFC compliant) URL”.
