    Fixed!! I found the system restore points and went back to Jan 13th. Everything was working but Google Chrome. Weird. Downloaded a new 64 bit Chrome and all is well..
    Thanks to everyone on this forum.. Whew! I just hope it stays that way. Not shutting down for a while.. I think it may have been an update last night that caused it but I'm not positive.
    That is GREAT NEWS LyndaB !!!! Now would be a good time to make a complete image backup of your OS, and store it on a 2nd drive. Just for added insurance.

    I'm very glad to hear you solved your problem. Making a image backup of the working system was a good idea.
