Sounds like you may have gotten a malware virus which causes your directories to be moved. When your directories are moved what happens is when Chrome tries to connect to the internet it is using the wrong directory which causes the webpage being unable to display. This happend with me aswell and re-installing didnt fix it.

Soltuions:
Restore the a previouse date that you know the computer worked.
Download and install Malwarebytes and run the free virus scan.
Test on another internet connection to make sure it isn't your internet provider's fault.

Recommendation:
Restore to a previouse date, and also run a malware scan to verify your computer is good to go, but for a quick fix run Malwarebytes.

How do i remove virus opening chrome off screen and opening odd web pages?


You can install a virus removal software. A good software with a free trial you can use is Malwarebytes, though some viruses won't allow the install of these type of programs. If this is true this could be a more major problem that would require seeing a technician in person.

To install Malwarebytes:
  1. Go to the following link: http://downloads.malwarebytes.org/file/mbam/
  2. Open the program once installed.
  3. Go through the prompts
  4. When done the program should open, if not press the Windows Button at the bottom left and type "Malwarebytes" and find "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware" and open it
  5. Find the "Scan" button near the bottom right.
  6. Allow the program to scan your computer.
  7. When it is done, for the virus(s) listed, make sure that "quarantine" is selected for all of them and click "Apply Actions"
  8. The malware should be gone.
If you need any further help, you're more than welcome to reply to this answer. I know how stressful it can be to have malicious software on your computer.

Now do i reset google as my web page


You likely have malware on your PC which has hijacked your home page.
  • Download Malwarebytes (free), and have it scan your pc
  • Delete/quarantine anything it finds
  • Download SuperAntispyware (free), and have it scan your PC
  • Delete/quarantine anything it finds.

To reset your home page:
  • Open the page you want as your home page in your Browser
  • Next, go to your browser settings (in google, its the "gear" on the Upper RH corner of your browser; in IE, also click on the "gear" and select "internet options)
  • In the section for setting home page, select "use Current" (the page you opened in the 1st step)
  • Hit OK
If the home page you set (google) doesn't appear, you will need to have further Malware/virus removal work done.

Can notr get google


Google Chrome is a free Internet browser made by Google.
It can be used on computers running the Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.
If you are having problems with Google Chrome (slow connection, freezes or crashes), you should consider reinstalling the program.
To reinstall Google Chrome, you need to first uninstall the program.
After that, you can reinstall it by using the following directions.

Go to http://www.google.com/chrome to download the browser.
Select "Download Google Chrome."
Read the service terms and select "Accept and Install."
You cannot install Google Chrome without accepting the terms of service.
Select "OK". This will open the package.
Select "Install Package" and allow the installation to complete.
Choose "Close."
In order to open Google Chrome, you must go to "Applications," then select "Internet" and choose "Google Chrome."
Reinstall Google on A Windows Computer
Go to http://www.google.com/chrome to download the browser.
Select "Download Google Chrome."
Read the service terms and then select "Accept and Install."
You cannot install Google without accepting the terms of service.
After you accept, the installation will begin automatically.
Allow the installation to finish.
A dialog box will appear
Select "Start Google Chrome".
That will complete its installation and the browser will open automatically.
Reinstall Google on a Mac Computer
Go to http://www.google.com/chrome to download the browser.
Select "Download Google Chrome."
Read the service terms and then select "Accept and Install."
As with the other operating systems, you can't install Google Chrome without accepting the terms of service.
Open the file labeled "Google Chrome.dmg."
A Google Chrome window will open up.
Drag that Chrome icon from the window that opened up to the desktop.
This will start installation.
Open the browser.
The Finder will have you confirm that you want to open the application you downloaded from the Internet.
Select "Open."
You must select this to open the program.
Unlike Windows computers, Macs don't automatically open programs after installation.

In order to change the home page for Google Chrome, simply press the wrench icon and change the homepage.
As for the Windows Live Mail issue, I'm guessing that the link for it in your start menu isn't working properly, so I'd suggest you uninstall the program in your Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs and reinstall it from http://explore.live.com/windows-live-mail?os=other

How do I browse the web?


You need to have a connection to the internet. Then you open web 'browser' programs like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla firefox. The browser will open to what is called a "home page" that is usually preset by the browser software. You then can either search for infomation using the search bar, usually located on the top portion of the home page, or you can put a web address in the address bar on the very top of the browser, to go to the website page you want.

This is very general information. There is much more that can be discussed on the topic of browsing the web. If you have any other questions, please let me know.

SearchSource=10&ctid=CT2269050 Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): Unknown error. wat to do????


Webpage display issues: "This webpage is not available" (Network errors 2, 102, 104, and 105) Issue This message displays when Google Chrome is unable to find and load the requested web page.
Solutions Check your web address and Internet connection Double-check the URL in the address bar to make sure you're going to the right web address. If you've confirmed that you're going to the right web address, check whether you can open the same web page in another browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. If you can't see the web page in any browser, the web page may be temporarily down. You should also make sure you're properly connected to the Internet.
Check the error you're receiving If you can load the web page using another browser, but not Google Chrome, check the exact error you're getting by clicking the More information on this error link on the page. The rest of the solutions listed in this article are relevant if you're experiencing any of the following errors:
  • Error 2 (net::ERR_FAILED): Unknown error
  • Error 104 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_FAILED)
  • Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED)
  • Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED):
  • Unknown error
To disable the proxy run this from the command line or modify your shortcut to run chrome:

"C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR USER NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --proxy-server
See here: http://tiny.cc/A2tST

Encountering this problem following your first restart after installing Privoxy (which requires changing G-Chrome's proxy settings).
If, after installing Privoxy, you elected not to have it load on system startup, manually re-loaded Privoxy. Simply reconfigure Privoxy to load on startup and the problem should be corrected.
