This was a cleen install on a clean test box, the only thing a little weird is I
am using a post Windows 2k SP3 security patch for the stock cert controls in 2k.
I will install on a stock sp3 box and test... BTW I did search the bugs before
posting and did not find the other one...

Well I think that was it.. Installed on clean system with only stock SP3 and it
worked just fine... I uninstalled and reinstalled on Test system with post sp3
fix and still had the issue so I am also going to list with Microsoft but I am
not sure where the two would interact as the sub systems do not interact as far
as I an see.
uninstall doesn't help.
You must manually remove not by the uninstaller deleted files !
You could also try a new profile (run "mozilla -profilemanager" to create an
additional test profile)

I don't think that this patch will afffect mozilla in this way...

New Profile solved the issue... Guess it's not a bug after all :( Thanks....
You can try to repeair you old profile :
Profile\Chrome\*.* (you will loose all additional installed language and Themes)
profile\cert7.db (you wil loose all installed certificates)

Verified - comment #6 or reinstallation is the only way to repair this. 
Unfortunately, this is a complex issue not easily fixed as it occurs during
installation and has several other factors involved.  In effect, while yes it
might occur, it does so randomly.
