How can I repair this?

Which OS are you having this problem on? Do other web browsers on the same computer work? – jaume Mar 1 '13 at 12:54
Windows7. Internet Explorer works. – juergen d Mar 1 '13 at 13:04
Are you using a proxy by chance? – Ramhound Mar 1 '13 at 13:26
No, no proxy using here. – juergen d Mar 1 '13 at 13:38

This may be (frequently is) a problem due to recent updates to your antivirus software. Recently (late-Feb '13) this happened to a lot of users of Kaspersky.

I would suggest closing Chrome, disabling your Antivirus, and opening Chrome again to test.

You are awesome. That's it. What can I do about it (besides deactivating my Kaspersky Antivirus)? – juergen d Mar 9 '13 at 16:18
From what people are reporting, it may just work if you reenable Kaspersky. Past that, I'd try possibly removing and reinstalling Kaspersky. Someone else suggested adding exceptions for sites you use here. Hope that helps. – slancio Mar 9 '13 at 16:21
Reactivating Kaspersky did not work. I can't deinstall it. I can't touch it because of a company-enforced Windows Domain Policy. But I keep looking... – juergen d Mar 9 '13 at 16:28
Deactivating the checkbox Activate Web control in Kaspersky's options did make it work again. For now that is good enough for me till Kaspersky brings an update. – juergen d Mar 9 '13 at 16:38
Oh hey, no worries. :) Just glad you've got something workable. – slancio Mar 9 '13 at 16:39

It might be that a firewall or Antivirus is blocking Chrome. You should add Chrome to the exceptions list.
