Restart in Safe Mode and start a system restore to a date before the problems began.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I assume at some stage you restarted the computer to see if that helped?

Are you saying that you did System Restore to a date/time before the problem came along, as suggested?

Is the Control Panel problem still there?

You have just mentioned "about blank". Can't see any mention of it before, so what is that all about? Anything you know about what is happening we need to know too, so that we can try to work out what is wrong and then help you fix it.

IF you are using IE try the Reset:

IE > Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Reset button.

You will lose any customizations and addons. The addons will come back with usage.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Maybe uninstall and reinstall of Chrome would help:

Unfortunately it seems you would lose your bookmarks and settings (i'm not a Chrome user).

Uninstalling Chrome will not loose your bookmarks. They are stored online under your Google account information so it is safe to try Derek's suggestion.

Scan with Malwarebytes to be sure that a malware infection is not the cause of your problems.
Try another browser (IE, Firefox) to be sure that you are not being blocked by a firewall, or router/network setting (especially if this is a business network).
