What settings in Chrome (running on Windows or Linux) can affect logins?

There are a couple of Chrome settings that may help:

  1. ’Continue where I left off’ - attempts to re-establish all of your sessions that were open when you closed the browser. This can result in a continuation of a session -OR- can result in some very cryptic errors within the Application (Service Provider).  Change this under Settings > On startup

  2. ‘Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed’ - Disable this setting under Settings > Show advanced settings… > System > uncheck the item.

In addition, other users have reported that clearing cached images & files has also helped: Ctrl-Shift-Del (or Menu > More tools... > Clear browsing data...) and clear only Cached images and files.
