I'm a new guy here.
This is my initial post.
I am running XP Home.
The night of 3/20, I put my pc to "sleep" for the night~~not off.
I have been using chrome as my default for a long time.
The morning of 3/21 I "woke" the pc.
I had made NO CHANGES to the pc and, when I attempted to open "chrome", absolutely nothing happened.
I run Norton, spybot, ad-aware and the Win malware cleaner. Nothing was found there.
I have un and re-installed chrome and, the ONLY thing I see when I attempt to open it is this message:
"Chrome requires XP or later or some functions will not operate properly".
I have been running XP forever and, that has not changed since I initially installed chrome.
Now, if the above message is being sent when I attempt t access chrome, there must be some connection to chrome as, I do not believe that XP is sending it.
This doesn't seem to be a virus as, everything else is functioning properly.
Also, after downloading chrome and right clicking to properties, then to "compatibility", there are four selections in the dropdown beginning with Win95 and ending in Win2000.
This has never ever been different and, I wonder why XP is not in there.
It never was and chrome operated correctly.
It is not possible to enter XP Home in the dropdown.
Although I am presently using firefox, I want to be able to access chrome.
I DID go to the "google/chrome" support site~~pretty much a waste of time.
All that was said there are those things which I have already done.
Is anyone here familiar with this problem and can help me?
BTW-Let's go Blackhawks
