I can't tell if you removed the preferences for Chrome yet, but reading https://productforums.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/chrome/NOD5AiveQxU I think I'd follow their advice next.
Since 2 days I cannot load any page on Chrome (I'm on Mac OS X 10.8). It shows me "about : blank" instead... With Safari, no problem, it works... I know it's usually a Windows problem, but there it is...
I already uninstall and reinstall Chrome, without success... (Strangely I didn't had to reinstall the plug-in...)
Anyone can help please ?
Thanks in advance
