Chrome changes screen resolution

Everytime I open Google Chrome on my XP Home SP3 2.8GHz computer the screen resoltuion changes from 1024 x 768 to 800 x 600.

I can reset it and still use Chrome but it happens everytime.

Thoughts?

Right Click Chrome (the shortcut on your desktop or however you are opening it)
Go to properties
Compatibility tab
Check if it is set to open in a specific resolution
If so uncheck it and click OK

Navigate to this folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\

In that folder should be a file called "Local State."
Open the file (should be a text file. Open with Notepad)
Near the bottom of that file will be the screen resolution and position settings. Please copy and post them here.

Local State doesn't contain a "screen resolution" (or any resolution) as well as position settings.

Please attach the file here. I would like to look at it. I don't recall if there is a specific reference to it. It may be embedded within the brackets.

Wow... what a goof ball!  I rebuilt the engine, tried jump starting it and was out of gas the whole time.
Thanks
