Keep getting this on screen message. How can I resolve the problem>

Have you shut down and then rebooted the pc? this sometimes clears a 'faulty start'

What OS have you got? XP, Vista, W7? and which browser?

Is your problem the same as this person's? http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forums/28/windows-7-help/4154401/your-profile-could-not-be-opened-correctly/

I have Windows 7 and have also rebooted, but makes no difference. Even to arrive at this forum I had to negotiate the above message first.

I can only presume it is your Chrome profile that you mean. If so then you are not on your own and Google haven't fixed it yet. There is a 'fix' involving deleting or renaming a couple of files. Suggest you google for fix and try them out. (Too long to copy and paste into here)

The only fix I read was to uninstall Chrome, profiles and all, then reboot and install the latest version and start again. Might be worth using Revo to remove it.

Have you tried this ClickHere yet? there are some fixes you could try.

lotvic, I dislike that "auto Google search" app. I always think it is insulting to the TS (OP). Just my thoughts.

  lotvic 21:55 07 Jul 12

rdave13, I agree in principle, however the TS (OP) had started another thread asking for update without any feedback on the advice already given so thought I would help with the google search. No offence was intended, quite the reverse, I thought it would raise a laugh.

  rdave13 22:08 07 Jul 12

lotvic I know no offence was intended especially from your good self. Still....

  lotvic 22:19 07 Jul 12

rdave13, Oh dear then, hope I'm not in bother for suggesting to another forumite that they check the Obits column because he's getting a screen message 'Identity Login. There is no current Identity'

Now I think I'd better apologise to fanshaw2 for hijacking thread to post trivia and go and give myself a severe talking to...
