In case of problems
Have you found the Chrome start page changed without you touching the browser settings and / or unable to change it? I'm sorry, but you've probably been the victim of a malware, more precisely of a browser hijacker.
In case you don't know, browser hijackers are malicious software that changes the browser's home page and default search engine in order to redirect the user to sites full of advertisements and other malicious content. Furthermore, these malware can install extensions in the browser that cause additional advertising banners and annoying pop-ups to appear while browsing online.
To get rid of it, I recommend that you try to contact Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, one of the best antimalware currently available on the market. It is free, but eventually it is available in a paid version (with prices starting from 39,99 euros / year) that offers real-time system monitoring (a function which, however, is not essential for what you have to do) .

Afterwards, repeat the steps to change the Chrome start page that I showed you in the previous chapter all over again and everything should finally work out the right way.
