Chrome does not start up anymore after upgrading w8 to w8.1
Recently I upgraded my windows 8 to windows 8.1 . Now I found that Chrome does not start up.
Even removing of Chrome does not work and also downloading anew gave no response at all.
IE 11 works fine, although I can not make it the standard browser. I think so because activating an URL from another program
is not succesfull. IE does not start up.

PS Moreover I cannot download Firefox.
Re: Chrome does not start up anymore after upgrading w8 to w8.1
It's not only after upgrading from 8 to 8.1 (which happened to my colleague), Google Chrome wouldn't start. I have a brand-new machine (1 week old) with 8.1 factory pre-installed, with the same issue exactly. Chrome was the very first program I installed on this brand-new computer, and and it really has wreck a havoc on the computer - no other browser (IE and Firefox, later) would work properly, and eventually the whole thing had slowed down almost to screeching halt. I had to uninstall Chrome, which was my long-time default browser on my previous, W7 machine, the one that NEVER failed before. Now, everything looks OK with browsers - well, W 8.1 has a lot of other issues.
So, my question (and suspicion) - is it somehow related to Microsoft - Google increasing competition? Because it really looks like Chrome is incompatible with very last Widows edition.( Isn't it a shame?) And, BTW, it works fantastic with W 7 - all editions. Any thoughts?
