Windows 7: ie8 works, but chrome doesn't move an inch

ie8 works, but chrome doesn't move an inch

this is going to sound awfully silly, but on my win7 partition i have two browsers installed. ie8 and chrome (the latest version on google). ie8 will pull up pages all over the place, but chrome just sits there like a dumb lump on a log. for the life of me, i haven't a clue as to why i can't use my favorite browser. when i boot into the vista partition, all is well. it's only happening on the win7 partition.

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
