"Why Does Hair Turn Gray?" [Chrome browser question]

And why has this *#%&ing article (above) always appeared since the first time I started Google Chrome? It's not specified as a homepage in my settings, and I never use msn.com. I have never searched or book-marked anything about gray hair in my life (and probably won't for some years to come).

Does anyone else always get this page on Chrome start up, or have the same problem with another page? How do I tell Chrome to never go to msn.com again?

Hair doesn't turn gray, it looses it's pigmentation and turns clear.

Maybe try a reinstall. I don't have that problem or anything like it. I have Chrome set to start with whatever pages were last open.
