Google Chrome – Your Profile Could Not Be Opened Correctly

· One min read

Every time you open Google Chrome you’re getting the “Your profile could not be opened correctly” error? This is how I fixed it.

  1. Open My Computer/Computer
  2. Go into your operating system drive (usually Local Disk C:)
  3. Go to Users/Documents & Settings
  4. Go into your user account (for example: C:Usersluke)
  5. Navigate to: AppDataLocalGoogleChromeUser DataDefault
  6. Delete WebData

If you are running Windows XP navigate to: Application DataLocalGoogleChromeUserDataDefault.

Note: Default is the name of the Google profile; it may be different depending on your setup.
