In order to do that, follow the above steps, and replace step 5 and 6 with the following. Make sure that you backup your bookmarks before doing this, as they are a part of your profile and will disappear after doing this:

Locate the folder called "Default" in the directory window that opens and rename it as "Backup default."

Try opening Google Chrome again. A new "Default" folder is automatically created as you start using the browser.
