Check whether you need a new browser user profile :-                                                                If you see this error message repeatedly, your browser user profile may be corrupted. First try moving the Default subfolder from your User Data folder to see if that fixes the problem:

  1. Enter the keyboard shortcut Windows key  +E to open Windows Explorer.
  2. In the Windows Explorer window that appears enter the following in the address bar:Windows
    • Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%Local SettingsApplication DataGoogleChromeUser Data
    • Windows Vista/ Windows 7/ Windows 8:%LOCALAPPDATA%GoogleChromeUser Data

    Mac OS X~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default

    Linux~/.config/google-chrome/Default

  3. Click OK.
  4. In the window that opens, rename the “Default” folder as “Backup.”
  5. Move the “Backup” folder from the “User Data” folder up one level to the “Chrome” folder.

Check for problems with protected system files :- 

  1. Go to Start menu > Run.
  2. Enter the following: sfc.exe /scannow (make sure there is a space betweenSFC.EXE and /SCANNOW). This initiates the Microsoft utility that will scan and repair problems with protected system files on your computer.
