Google Chrome getting worse, can you advise me please?

I'm writing this through Explorer. I used to use Chrome on Windows 7 to read e-mails and surf the net, and use Explorer for online purchasing. Recently Chrome has refused to open up my yahoo mail, which I now have to do through explorer.

Also the page freeze after a couple of hours and I can't do anything with it. It won't even let me close pages and often comes up with a sign saying 'kill pages'. I notice tis happened when I visited Facebook which Chrome hates, I now visited through Explorer. It also hangs after a while of listening to Last FM.

I have tried uninstalling it but it just won't go. After several attempts it keeps saying to close down all open Chrome, but that's the prob, because it's already closed! I have removed some add on's in Chrome, but it's still rubbish. My intention is to re-install Chrome, but I can't if it won't go in the first place.

Can you advise me what to do please?

I have rang up a PC guy who first built me tower, but he got a bit impatient with me on the phone and said the phone call was chargable!

Is it me, or is Chrome really bad now?

What is your operating system?

Windows seven.

I'm STILL getting problems, especially when I run Chrome along side Explorer. Trying to play music and it'll stop and freeze and no amount of clicking with solve anything. Fed up to the back teeth with it, have rang up the place where I had my tower built, but they seem impatient to help and start telling me even the phone call is chargeable!

Can you tell me what that does please?

I often have to reboot the tower now which is a damned nuicense, especially if I'm doing college work. Should I contact Sky broadband whom I'm with?
