    Recently noticed (past two weeks) a pink error icon in the upper right corner of Chrome.
    When I click on it is says: snyc isn't working, sign in again, sign into chrome.
    I've never signed in and never sync anything, nor do I want/need to. A few of the other line items are: passwords, payment methods and addresses.
    The Chrome info is: version 69.0.3497.100 64 bit.
    System info:
    Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.4
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M 380 @ 2.53GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 37 Stepping 5
    Processor Count: 4
    RAM: 3884 Mb
    Graphics Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics, 1718 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: 574 GB (62 GB Free);
    Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer Inc., U52F
    Antivirus: Avast Antivirus, Enabled and Updated
    The system appears to be working fine, just would like some info/help with this error icon.
    I've attached a screen shot.
    Thanks for your time.

    Create a fake account and login to it?

    It seems that someone has, but then that doesn't look like any chrome version that I know of. You may want to update it too.
    Having said that, if you click on the account icon does it give you an email address?

    Respectively, where/what is the account icon?

    The icon you circled has a silhouette of a little head and shoulders ... which I'm assuming would be an account icon?

    What happens if you click it?

    What happens if you right-click it?

    When I click on it, a drop down appears with the info listed in my first post. Right click does nothing.

    Thanks for your time.
    I don't want to sign in or up, or turn sync on or off, just want to use the browser.
    I can live with the error sign.
    It's intrusive that an update was made or something was changed without a users permission.
    I realize this happens all the time now....it's still intrusive.

    Just a note to edit in: when I go to the admin account, which I don't use to face the internet, the pink error icon is not there on Chrome. Interesting, the General User account, which I'm using now and we always use to access/face the internet, has limited privileges/access, allowed the change in Chrome to take place.......can anyone shed some light on this change being allowed?
    Thanks again.

    Thanks DaveA, but I don't see in my TSG Sysinfo where I have 3D Acceleration, plus I know I don't have a touchscreen.
