It's not that I'm trying to make it more like 7. That's not the problem.
My problem is that whenever I click the Google Chrome icon on my taskbar or even the desktop, Windows brings up this screen-spanning message box saying that my resolution is too low to launch run Google Chrome, and to set my computer to a higher resolution. (I can't.)
It then continues to open Chrome correctly after I hit close. This also happens when I click a link in an external program like skype or psi.
Update: Now it never launches. I tried to get into my gmail through it this morning, and it won't launch at all.
