    Default Every time I open Chrome...

    it opens my last tabs and then open tab that reads "Oops! This link appears broken" and a google page. The URL is http://appdata/Local/Google/Chrome/Application/chrome.exe%20-enable-extensions%20--load-extension=c:/myextension

    (Yes, Appdata is highlighted in the URL for some reason.)

    I use XP, if that matters.

    Also, none of the addons(or is it extensions, idk) work, but themes do.

    Wild guess here but could you copy and paste your "Target" property of the shortcut you used ?

    Make sure you paste it in CODE tags.

    Code:
    "C:\Documents and Settings\Paul Shropshire\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" -enable-extensions --load-extension="c:\myextension"

    Well there's your problem.
    Unless there really is a purpose for this part, i suggest you replace your Target to :
    Code:
    "C:\Documents and Settings\Paul Shropshire\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --enable-extensions --load-extension="c:\myextension"
    You were also missing a " - " before -enable-extensions.
    This should fix both your weird start page issue as well as your extensions not working.

    Navigate to C:\myextension
    What is in that folder ?

    If you want to use an extension, it should be located in that folder.
    There should be a file named " manifest.json " and probably some .js files and/or .css files.

    When you use --load-extension= " .. " there needs to be an extension located in that directory.

    Ok, well that's not what you want to do.

    --load-extension is meant to be used with a manifest and javascript files.
    When you have a packaged extension file (.crx) you need to use --install-extension="c:\myextension\myextension.crx"

    Simply replace --load-extension with --install-extension and give the full path to the .crx file.
