Fix Google Chrome Bug: Your Profile Could Not Be Opened Correctly

How to fix Google Chrome bug “Your profile could not be opened correctly”.

If you are using Chrome on a PC, you may have encountered this bug already with the latest Chrome release, 30.0.1599.28 beta-m.

After you close all Chrome windows and then open a new window, you’ll get this error. And then, any actions that require your profile (e.g. download to a predefined folder) will not work correctly.

Instead of terminating all processes upon exit, Chrome leaves a stale chrome.exe running which will cause the above error when you open a new window (after closing all windows previously).

To fix this bug, before opening Chrome, use task manager to kill this stale chrome.exe process.

Google Chrome’s quality keeps deteriorating.
