I always use Sandboxie to open my browsers and this still works perfectly with Chrome, but the normal Chrome desktop shortcut icon has suddenly stopped working.

All the other desktop icons work OK.

I would appreciate any clues as to why this has happened and how I can resolve it.

It looks like a false alarm.
I use Standby and Hibernate all the time and only shut down perhaps every 2-3 days.

Somehow the desktop Chrome icon function must have got paralysed during the sleep period, because when I eventually did shut the computer down and restarted it, the Chrome icon is now working.

Sorry for the false alarm, but the icon freeze puzzled me. Just re-booting never entered my mind as a solution.
