I had this problem too I had to clear my chrome sync data on my Google account clear the data on the Internet app and then sign in and out of chrome. Make sure you are only encrypting your passwords in chrome.

Oh fantastic!
It worked.
For anyone else who stumbles across this thread, what I did was...

In google chrome settings via a computer, There is a hyperlink to google dashboard. Go there and down to Chrome Sync, I reset and deleted chrome data. (Don't worry, it doesn't delete your bookmarks, picasa, or gmail). Then it reset Chrome so that it was not "encrypt all data" and instead is now "encrypt with password", like you said.

Problem fixed.
Thank you so much!

Is it possible to sync both my personal laptop and work PC to chrome? I have my laptop syncing to my primary gmail account and my work PC to my secondary gmail. Can I sync both computers to the same gmail and maintain separate, unique settings for each?

In chrome settings, disable syncing to whichever account you want to let go. Then sign back in with the correct account.

Then, under the syncing options, you can chose what exactly to sync; Browsing history, extensions, bookmarks, etc.

So, yes.

If I am understanding correctly, I can sign into both machines using a single email (gmail account) and they will both stay synced separately? Just want to make sure I'm retaining all of my synced settings for both machines. Thanks for the clarification.

What I don't like about this is that it merges all bookmarks and items in the bookmark bar. I wish it would keep them separate by device. Not practical with the work computer...

fixed finally
On my sensation it seems that "reset Chrome so that it was not "encrypt all data" and instead is now "encrypt password" is what repaired my "internet sync" problem.

Thank you!

This worked for me too! I previously had had chrome. Had to get a new galaxy 3. I redownloaded chrome on the new phone and deleted sync data from my desktop then signed back in to chrome on desktop as well . Went back to my phone and hit sync internet and it worked.
