When I go onto Chrome, an alert comes up that says something along the lines of "Your preferences could not be saved." All my extensions are lost and my settings are back to default. How do I get it back to normal? Do I have to uninstall/reinstall Chrome? If I do, will all my bookmarks be deleted?

Sounds like a bug, file a bug on chromium at to get better help. SO is not the place for this. – Jason Hall Mar 23 '12 at 23:09
What stackexchange network is a appropriate to post this question on by the way? – David Mar 23 '12 at 23:11
Make sure you enable sync and export your bookmarks. Then you can uninstall/reinstall without losing them. – abraham Mar 24 '12 at 0:58

Uninstall chrome completely, then run the reg file specified here, then re-install and sync your profile with google.
