ERR_CONNECTION_RESET is an error that usually occurs when the site you are trying to visit can not establish a connection to the destination site. Your other sites may work, but some sites will not. There are several causes that can cause the problem. You must therefore follow each method and stop at the one that suits you.
In my experience, I have always noticed that this error resulted from changes to the registry, tcpip, or other network settings. This may happen without your knowledge, as it is usually modified by third-party programs, most often computer optimization software, but may also be due to an anti-virus or third-party firewalls.
Common Causes of ERR CONNECTION RESET Error
ERR_CONNECTION_RESET is one of the most common Google Chrome errors. If you really want to know what is causing this error, check out the list of probable causes below:
- When your destination site can not establish a connection.
- When your destination site is experiencing server problems, such as high load or full use of resources. In this case, you can not resolve the problem because your destination site is down.
- In addition, this is usually due to third-party programs / software, plug-ins or extensions of your browser, or to antivirus / third-party firewalls.
- When you try to switch between your networks such as Mobile Data or WiFi.
- When the destination site reaches the maximum usage limit of resources.
