I get the 'program failed to initialized properly' error every time I open Google Chrome. I have been using Chrome for three weeks and this is the fist time it has come up. Now it won't 'fix'. I have XP.
Right click on the Chrome icon and select properties and add "--no-sandbox" to the end of Target
("C:\Documents and Settings\...\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --no-sandbox)
