The profile appears to be in use by process 3810 on host Ays40. If you are sure that no other processes are using this profile, delete the file /home/pflsml/.config/google-chrome/SingletonLock and restart Google Chrome.

This means that someone uses google chrome or that it was closed unexpectedly. Try w in console. If there is a preson listed using kde/gnome it means he has chrome open, if there is not such user you should be safe to delete it
