The problem I have is when I try to open Chrome Windows informs me it cannot access the specified drive path etc.

I can use the properties of the short cut to take me to the exe. file so shortcut should work.

I have set permisions to full control but no joy. this was working up until yesterday.

I have run Malware Bytes, Spybot 2 and Kaspersky Anti virus. I can access Chrome in safe mode but not in normal windows.
