Problem that chrome sets inbox mail to read status

I suffered an OS X system corruption which required my Macbook pro to be restored to factory settings. I recovered my system (data and applications) from back up fine.

However I have a problem that when Chrome is running and I am connected to my google account it sets any incoming mail to my inbox to the "read" status after about a minute of it being received. This then repeats to any mail clients.

I can't find anything in google mail settings that allows me to stop / reset this behaviour.

Can you suggest a fix please.
