When the MD loaded Chrome this morning it just Black Screens on him.
Only recently auto-install was Twitter over w/e.
This has been removed and makes no difference.
Updated Flash, graphics card drivers and firmware.
System says it's patched up-to-date.
Chrome has been removed and reinstalled - again no joy. (It takes an age to uninstall).

Any ideas?

Do you have IE running concurrent with Chrome?  If so, and if you do not use IE, you can disable it in Programs and Features, Windows Features. Be sure before you do this, that IE is not required for anything.

Now uninstall Chrome.

Then open an admin command prompt and run System File Checker. Run SFC /SCANNOW and allow to complete. Run again.  

Now restart the computer, install Chrome and see if Chrome is working.

Go to chrome://plugins/ and check if you have only 1 record for Flash - if you have more leave only one enabled
or
Also check chrome://flags, find Delegated Renderer and switch from Default to Enabled
or
If you have QuickTime installed, try to uninstall, reboot machine and run Chrome

SFC /SCANNOW comes back with no Integrity Violations.
QuickTime wasn't installed.
Believer I fully removed Chrome manually before I reinstalled it, but no joy.
How and where do I run chrome://plugins/  as I can't see anything in Chrome, just the blue bezel?

Chrome may be the symptom rather than the cause.

Scan thoroughly for viruses with your own anti virus application and then scan with Malwarebytes.  Clean up any viruses.

Now disable anti virus and uninstall Chrome again. Leave A/V disabled and reinstall Chrome. Now enable your anti virus. Does it work now.

The next step would be a Windows 7 Repair Install. You can do this from the Windows 7 DVD and sometimes with the on-board recovery partition. Here is a Seven Forums Tutorial to assist you.

Bug in Chrome.

Luckily this organisation has a Commercial Support Agreement with Google.
We installed the beta version of Chrome (Canary) and it worked.

Many thanks to everyone for their help.
