Sorry about that I was running XP Prof.
The details of this situation remain unclear. In your OP (original post), you said you were running Windows 7 and you explained your problem with Chrome. Now, you say "I was running XP Prof". Did you have a problem with Chrome running with Windows 7 or not? If not, then why did you mention it in your OP? And, why later say "I was running XP Prof"? Do you mean that you meant to say in your OP that you were running Win XP Prof? And, are you saying the problem stopped when you installed Windows 7 and installed Chrome under Windows 7?
If not, then what was the solution?
