What's that error say exactly ? Can't read it.

This might help but I don't like to give advice unless I understand the exact problem,

"Your preferences cannot be read"

"Some features may be available and changes to preferences won't be saved."

Now when I open Google I have to reset the home page button and always show bookmarks

That appears to be a Google Chrome profile problem, probably corruption.

I can lead you in a direction. I'm not familiar with Chrome, but if it's like Firefox reinstalling would not help because that does not reinstall the profile folder.

But any way here's a link.

I Goggled the exact error Your preferences cannot be read"

"Some features may be available and changes to preferences won't be saved

Thanks Joe, I will check it out tonite. I had run malware/spyware programs and this appeared after. I will investigate the link you provided this evening when I am home.

I like to come back and post how I made out as I post quite frequently on the home and window forums and it is very frustrating when people do not have the decency to reply with how the FREE help works.
