Hi,

I am an expert here and have no control over billing. However i know for a fact that you don;t have to pay unless your problem is solved

Now as far as your problem is concerned, i am guessing that a corrupt addon or plugin is causing this. To fix that:

1. You can try uninstalling and reinstalling chrome.

2.You can force Google Chrome to regenerate all configuration and profile files. You should be able to do this with a single command from terminal:

rm ~/.config/google-chrome/*

Keep in mind that this will delete all of your bookmarks and settings. So hopefully you have them synced with your Google account or backup somehow.

Keep me posted.

Regards,

Paul

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
