    Feedback to google chrome developers for addons software that works with Chrome. I normally install and run fileprotector on my xp system which I only use online with reg user (NO ADMIN RIGHTS). i TRIED UPDATING CHROME WITH OTHER APPS SUCH AS DESKTOP, WORLDMAPS APP, AND A FEW OTHER APPS THAT CAME WITH UPDATE. Problem,: software works great when fileprotector is disabled (this makes control panel functions such as Adminstrator functions unavailable when app is active to protect system while online). Even though the apps are impressive many duplicating or mimmicing a vista destop with sidebar, internet quotes, world map viewing utility impressive with streetview software,. My problem is when my file protect software is active
    the pc boots up and gives me the blue screen of death, like it does not want to continue with this security software active and installed. Despite the fact that I like the apps and functions, I would rather have the bullet proof security of knowing hackers can not screw with my system easily when I am online as a reg user., I have had to remove and uninstall all apps downloaded, and return to just the simple chrome browser. Please keep this in mind. I have a backup op sys. copy that I run as master in order to boot to good system and then go in and edit bad system and return it to previous state before downloaded software corrupted my op sys.This backup copy is the only thing that saves my ass in these circumstances.Recommend Partition commander, Avanquest True image, and Acronis Disk directror for making backup of op sys. on secondary drive that is bootable., This is a classic catch-22 you may want the “goodies” that software provides, but don’t want the exposure or risk to hackers or malevolent code on the internet. You have to decide which is more important priority. Another solution is to have several hot swappable HDD’s so you can easily switch between them, but be ware that you do not corrupt one with data from the other. I still think that they should come up with a bullet proof op system just for internet use one that would behave like the old dumb terminals on a mainframe where it would be impossible to change system registry or code of system while interfacing with outside world. This is why flash memory sticks are often prohibited by companies for security reasons. The ideal would be a dumb terminal with no access to system registry or code, and read only memory not RAM like most pc’s. (you can’t screw with code if it is not rewritable or is ROM with all critical code on Eproms.(UV light programmable IC memory chips).We can only wish 
    manufacturers get a clue.
