that's normal .. if ur a standard user ..then it will ask you for a admin password when you open chrome ..and if your an admin (user) then it doesn't ask for the password

Where is the shortcut? Pinned to taskbar, on the desktop, start menu? Perhaps delete it and create a new one by right clicking on chrome.exe in the installation folder (Program Files(x86)?), see if the new shortcut has the option clickable. A Guy
