Hmmm, strange, I clicked the checkmark but I guess it didn't take. Sorry.

Apparently my thumb drive was not as updated as it should be. It was a virus. Thanks for the help.

I have not tried that since the problem started. I updated my question with some background info to explain why. I am assuming that this may have been the start of the problem (how the computer got infected) but is no longer relevant because inserting a blank, fresh from the package, thumb drive caused it. I took this to mean the issue is on the computer and only being triggered by inserting the drive.

Yes it's up to date. The computer is not connected to the internet but I have scanned it with portable Kaspersky and Avira from my thumb drive.

Perfect, thanks, this was just what I was looking for. I had to change the shortcut a bit though: c:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --user-data-dir="..\User Data\Inco" -incognito

So just creating that directory and using it in the shortcut is enough to create a new user profile?

This sounds good, but I'm not sure I understand how to setup a different user profile.
