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.

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

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, 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...
