It appears the underlying problem was with google chrome?? Since you have not (that I can see) Erased your original OSX installation by Formatting the Partition with the security option you have not actually Removed any offending 3rd party application or file. This is why disk utility could not repair the disk permissions.
Do you have any time machine backups?
No - I do not have any time machine backups. I tried once but could never get it to function or else the disks I was using weren't acceptible.
I only got that message about Chrome once, the rest of the time it talks about scripts randomly. The one time I was finally able to get on (and thought progress was being made because I managed to download applejack and onyx) there were all sorts of pages/programs that I needed to close out behind the open pages. I tried once to get a screen shot of my activity monitor but was unsuccessful. This has been very difficult because the resources are limited and its been going on so long I'm getting lost and confused myself.
I really have tried to avoid just wiping out my disk because I've lost so many pictures a year ago to intruders stealing both my computers and my pictures with them that to lose more is bothersome. I do have some of my pictures backed up in Dropbox but I ran out of space.
My tech skills vary - I far from a newbie but not all that savvy either. Add to that my frustration/attention deficit problems and its well - what it is.
Thanks for your response.
