A few days ago I got this popup saying the my Chrome was out of date and demanded I upgrade. I did and got Version 27.0.1453.110.

All my extensions disappeared as did any settings (like where to download to ) disappeared. The "theme" I as using disappeared. When I open Chrome now I get an initial screen that shows several link icons , facefook, new york times, etc. I can change the homepage but I have to hit the home icon to get there.

Finally I cannot reload the theme I had before this "upgrade" and cannot change the theme to any other I chhose. I can select a theme, it says it has added it but the theme will never appear.

I feel like there has been a hijack here somewhere. The way the upgrade screen came up was odd and since I am always forced into the same initial screen I get the feeling that something was added that is not really from Chrome. Hard to find out what the real current version is.

I tried using the inspect element and saw this being loaded

I have tried reloading and am ending up with the same thing.

Question really amounts to is this a legit version of Chrome and why can't I change the theme? Why is that page with all the links the only one that will start?

Can you provide more detail on "popup saying the my Chrome was out of date and demanded I upgrade?" In my experience, Chrome does not pop-up dialogs for updates. – mawcsco Jun 7 '13 at 20:07
