Today, my Windows 7 OS decided to de-clutter some files by itself and it did. But after I re-booted my laptop, Google Chrome kept shutting down on me everytime I turned it on.
At first, I thought it was some kind of spyware or virus on my laptop but Firefox was working fine. Then I googled and found that Windows 7 probably corrupted the Chrome user profile files while it was doing its thang.
Here’s how to fix it, really easy, according to Google:
1. Exit Google Chrome completely.
2. Go to the Start menu > Run.
3. Enter one of the following directories in the text field, then press OK.
* Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data
* Windows Vista: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data
4. Locate the folder called “Default” in the directory window that opens and rename it as “Backup default.”
Thank God I don’t have to use Firefox!
