Right click on the Google Chrome Icon and choose Properties. Under Google Chrome Properties > Compatibility tab > Compatibility mode, go ahead and place a checkmark in the box to the left of Run this program in compatibility mode for: whichever OS is displayed in the box below it (no need to change the OS). Click Apply > OK.
If you try to open Chrome, you should still get that nag screen.
Close Google Chrome if it is open...
Now, go back and uncheck that box to the left of Run this program in compatibility mode for:
Click Apply > OK and try to open Chrome. Do you still get the nag screen?
Let me know.
Well Donna, thanks for that tip.
I did exactly what you said to the Chrome desktop icon. After the first suggestion, yes I still got the nag panel. After completing the second suggestion, NO nag panel !!
I closed and opened Chrome 3 times and NO nag panel. I like it but am mystified. Surely its a fluke and will come back when my elation has subsided. All that was using the normal Chrome icon.
Having "succeeded" so far with the normal Chrome icon, I tried opening Chrome using Sandboxie, which is my standard procedure for accessing the Internet and the nag panel came up every time I closed and restarted Chrome via Sandboxie.
I could not have a normal Chrome opening as well to check if it was still OK without Sandboxie, since trying to have two Chrome openings causes a profile conflict. When I have finished this post, I will close Sandboxie/Chrome and try the ordinary Chrome icon again, to see if the nag panel has come back.
What is your verdict about that dual situation Donna ?
Donna, I did that and went back to use the normal Chrome icon, but it would not open Chrome, had to use Sandboxie to get back and see that nag screen again. Could it be something to do with how Sandboxie is handling Chrome ?
