I also cannot move or enter commands into the address line, or into any text field, say on Google search. I tried repairing it by reinstalling Chrome over itself, but it didn't work. Please help. Thanks.

Two ways:

(1) Try uninstalling Chrome using Revo Uninstaller, restart, and reinstall.

(2) Restore your system to before the updates. And reinstall them one by one (to determine if one of them is the culprit).

Chrome installs to the user account folders, rather than the system (a bit odd, but I guess this helps with security).  If you logon with a user that is new to that computer, do you still expereience the same problems?  If not, your issue maybe due to corrupt files in the user's profile (Is recreating the user profile an option)?
