Is the site reachable in another browser? Like Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer. Is this website your own website? If not, what is the URL? We need much more information before we can answer this question. –  Mixxiphoid Jul 24 '13 at 6:14

It is probably caused by an extention, try removing extentions one at a time.

First of all to go to Controlpanel > Add/Remove Programs and look for a program called "Default Tab", if it's their, remove it. This program gets installed when installing certain other programs and it's just their to be annoying.

You could go to Settings -> Tools -> Extentions and delete from their, but some extention might start again when restarting Google Chrome.

So another way of doing it is:

  • Go to run or press Win + R
  • Copy/paste this in to it: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\\Default\Extensions (Windows 7/8) and press enter
  • Delete the folders their to delete the extentions

EDIT
Sorry, got the original path mixed up, should be fixed now.

You probably could use %appdata% instead of C:\Users\jj\AppData\ where jj is the current username –  Journeyman Geek Jul 24 '13 at 7:54
    
doh, thanks for noticing. Originally I did copy the path with %LOCALDATA%, but I somehow got it mixed up again :) –  Jesper Jensen Jul 24 '13 at 8:38
