Hello John,
There is no error message. When I click on the Google Chrome icon on the screen, nothing happens.
There had been some malfunction of the laptop which the automatic repair system fixed, but when it retrieved and reinstalled all the files, the Google Chrome wouldn't work. I don't have access to other web browsers.

If its windows 10 then you can see a big e in the task bar or in the start menu open it and see if you can use it.If you cannot find it then use the search in start menu to search for either Edge or Internet explorer.Check it and please let me know.
