I was getting this annoying error each time when I open Google Chrome:
Your profile could not be opened correctly.
Some features may be unavailable. Please check that the profile exists and you have permission to read and write its contents.
If you have same problem then you might have noticed that it does not record the domain name that you visited the last time. So, I tried to solve this problem and got very easy and quick solution!
In every case this solution works! Here is what you have to do to solve this Google Chrome error:
First you need to enable the option to show the hidden folder. To do so, go to My Computer > in the top menu click Tools (for windows 7, it would be Organize) > Folder Options > click on the second tab named ‘View‘. Now, make sure to check ‘Show hidden files and folders‘. Then click Apply/OK.
Go to the Google Chrome file. Mostly the location is, C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data
Note that D:\ is the root drive where you have installed the Windows and replace <username> with your username. If you didn’t find that location, go to Desktop > right click Google Chrome shortcut > Properties > view the Target location.
Once you reached to that location, you can see the folder named Default. Now, rename that folder with Default_a. Make sure you must not open Google Chrome at that time. If your Google Chrome application is running, you’ll not able to rename ‘Default’ folder.
Now re-open Google Chrome, that error will not be visible anymore! If the problem persists then try rebooting your PC.
Restoring Favorites and Bookmarks
By applying above process, you may lose all of your Favorites and Bookmarks. But don’t worry you can still restore all of these things. Just go to the folder that you just renamed (default_a) and copy ‘bookmarks’ folder and paste it into the newly created folder by Chrome that is ‘default’.
Congratulations, now your Google Chrome is up once again!
