I am using Selenium web drivers, and today, for no apparent reason I started getting an error with the message"Chrome Automation Extension has crashed. Click this balloon to reload the extension".

The only thing I can think of is I added an extension for testing XPath to Chrome today. But it was working fine for a while after I added that.

Could it be some Chrome security issue?

I have had the same issue, I'd suggest you take care of the following 2 points and hopefully, you should be able to resolve it:

1. Don't run Chrome as Admin.

2. Don't run your selenium App as Admin.
