Where did you download/install from?

$ chown -R replaceTHISwithyourusername: ~/.config/google-chrome

Thanks that got it, I installed from the PPA. I had been running it fine and not as root that's for damn sure. Not sure how the permissions got changed guess it's time to look at the logs closely.
