Due to its ease of use, functional scope, and useful extensions, Chrome may be one of the most commonly used web browsers in Windows 10. However, in the later period, users reported a strange error when trying to open Google Chrome in standard or incognito mode. It seems that whenever they try to open Chrome, an error message will pop up stating that “Profile error occurred.”
