Google-chrome – Google Chrome always says, “Google Chrome was not shut down properly”


I am having this problem from over a month now, no matter how nicely I shut down Google Chrome and then shut down my system, every time that I lauch Google Chrome again, it shows this message:

Google Chrome was not shut down properly

What's wrong? Why is this happening?

This was just happening to me too. I found inside this file "%UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Preferences" near the bottom of the file (inside the Profile section) this line:

"exit_type": "Crashed"

Once I modified the line to read "normal" instead of "Crashed" like this:

"exit_type": "normal",

The problem disappeared.
