Your computer was fine last night?
Conduit usually comes about as the result of having installed 3rd party software In all likelihood, you weren't aware of what came bundled with it. It may come in the form of a toolbar, or maybe an extension which has the ability to change your browser's homepage settings, your default startup pages or possibly your search engine. ZoneAlarm was/is a good example. ⇐ I don't know if it presently does.
If that's the case, you shouldn't have a problem figuring out what you recently installed. You also have the option of rolling back the system to see if it makes a difference.
You say you tried what was suggestrd for Internet Explorer. It might help to know what (and how) you tried. Did you go to Programs and Features to see if the Conduit Toolbar is listed?
Did you try resetting Chrome's homepage? See Set your home page under #2.
I don't have Chrome installed, but from what I found with various searches, if Chrome is opening to the Conduit page:
Click on the Wrench in the top right corner. Then Settings>On Startup. Next to the button for "Open a specific page or set of pages", click on "Set pages". Hover over the URL until you see an "X" appear to the right side of the URL. Remove it, if there.
After clicking on the Wrench, also try clicking Settings>Search> Manage search engines. Check the list of "Default search engines", "Other search engines", and "Search engines added by extensions". If you find anything related to Conduit, or something else which shouldn't be there - remove it. Also see Set your default search engine.
Letting us know what you previously tried and what behavior it's causing with Chrome, would better help us help you.
Best of luck..
