I had the same issue - had no idea how to solve it. While reading this thread I was playing around with the computer settings and seem to have fixed it! I did the following:
>network and internet
>manage browser add ons (under the 'internet options' heading)
>then I retyped my homepage address - https://www.google.com/ within the box under the 'home page' heading
Apply the changes - then chrome opened as normal.
When I first went into this section the homepage address was google.com/(random numbers and letters).
I didn't want to have to reinstall chrome and lose all my auto logins (lazy) - this kept everything running as normal.
Hopefully helpful for someone else!
