Morning all,OS win 7. This is an issue that I have (Like lots of other people too, I suspect) been having over the last couple of days. My home page is Google and when I boot up the message >Your profile could not be opened correctly. Some features may not be available. Please check that the profile exists and you have permission to read and write its contents< without the arrow heads.

I have tried keying the message into Google, but there doesn't seem to be a cure up to now. Does anyone have the same problem? If so, have you been able to find an answer. My pc is clean.

Any offers, please.

Thank you

You do not say which browser you are using - it may be a recent update that has caused this -there are quite a few posts about this happening in Chrome as it self-updates. I believe that Google has said that it is working on a patch.

You could try to empty your browser cache, close the browser and restart your PC but if it is Chrome I think that the problem will re-occur.

Many posters have had to use another browser for the time being or roll back to an archived version of Chrome. The problem then is that it auto-updates and the problem re-occurs so another programme has to run to prevent these self updates.
