Windows 7: Google Drive kills itself before it can start up [only for one user]

Google Drive kills itself before it can start up [only for one user]

Hi all,

Recently I installed Google Drive and tried to run it. When I ran it, nothing happened, so I monitored the process on Task Manager. After reaching a certain amount of memory, it disappears off the list. See the screenshot below:



I tried to run it on another user account and it runs fine. The memory used is almost the same, but the one on my user account is slightly less.



Note - my user account is administrator and the user account I successfully ran it on was a standard user.

Does anyone know how I can diagnose the cause of this strange situation? I would prefer not to create a fresh user account just to run Google Drive. (I *think* this may have happened with other programs before - though I haven't tried running them on another user account)

Thanks in advance!
