Good day everyone,

 

My dad was using the computer after me and when I came back I noticed it was off (even though I was in the middle of some work). When I turned it back on, Windows said there was an error in the last time it was shut off. I thought nothing of it and went on my merry way. However, upon opening up chrome did I discover that something indeed was wrong.

 

All my extensions were wiped out. Completely. After the initial shock, I gathered my self and tried re installing the ones I could remember. However, not a single one could be installed. Instead, I kept meeting this message, "Package is invalid. Details: 'Could not unzip extension'."

 

After scouring the mighty sea of Google, I don't have a flying clue what happened and how to solve my current predicament.

 

I read someone suggesting system restore in an article. However, as luck would have had it, the last system restore point is when I had a virus attack with a software I downloaded. It took quite a while to clean up everything and I'm hoping I don't have to deal with that (at this point, my understanding of system restore could be questionable, so do let me know if it's a good option).

 

Please do advise, as I'm completely stumped.

 

Thank you for your time! :)

Hello, what is your Operating system?

MY GOODNESS! My sincerest apologies, I read the sticky before posting and STILL I forgot. Mia culpa.

 

I'm running Windows 8.

 

Alright and now an update! Everything is working fine! WOO. (Sorry for wasting your time boopme). I attempted a system restore just to see what would happen and right as I was about to do it, Windows said there was something wrong with my C disk, so (I think) it ran checkdisk. To be honest, I'm not exactly sure what program it ran to fix itself, but that's exactly what happened! Everything is back to normal.

 

Back to work now! Thanks everyone! :)

 

OH OH and I just want to say thank you for this wonderful community. I've always turned to BC for help, even if it means sporadic returns (years sometimes). Help has always been swift (here's looking at you boopme!) and extremely useful! So very grateful for this community! :)
