Question

chrome.exe - Corrupt File

by evilduff / April 21, 2011 8:07 AM PDT

I get this message in Windows XP. It suggests I run chkdsk, but when I run chkdsk, it runs in "read only" format and does nothing. The file that is corrupt is a hidden file in a hidden directory in Documents and Settings, so I can't even find it to delete it. I downloaded Google Chrome AGAIN but this did not help the problem. What can I do to fix this corrupt file?

I tried chkdsk /f

Got message the hard disk was protected, but I could run chkdsk /f the next time I rebooted so I said YES, and that chkdsk ran and repaired the problem (I hope). So it has been solved.
