Google Chrome Profile Version Error. Error message

Does anyone know why am I receiving these profile errors again and again from Chrome?

I had installed an update on my recent Chrome. After updating, it didn’t work.

So I installed the previous version of Google Chrome.

Now, I am continuously receiving this profile error message:
 
 
Google Chrome
 
Your profile can not be used because it is from a newer version of Google Chrome.
 
Some features may be unavailable. Please specify a different profile directory or use a newer version of Chrome.
 
I haven’t installed any corrupt version. I have just installed the version which is a bit older then. Why does it say that the profile is from a newer version. Why this version doesn’t support the profile of a latest version?
 
I want some perfect answers and a quick solution on how to end this error message.
 
If anyone has any idea regarding this, please tell me. As I have been through this situation for 14 days and can't bear it anymore.

Here is what I did to solve the problem:

  • Go to your home folder/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default and delete the Web data file. Now restart Chrome. It should work perfectly. 
 
If still doesn't work, try these:
 
  • Click to open your Users folder,
  • Then open the folder for your current user, say "Tom", open "Tom" folder,
  • Then open the Library folder.
  • Open Application Supper folder;
  • Find Google folder (if you want to be sure to get the right one, click to open it, there should be Chrome sub-folder in it);
  • Delete this Google folder and all folders inside it.
  • Restart Chrome;
 
You can enjoy Chrome again without that annoying message!
 
Note: These Folders might be hidden.
