Not too sure on your Chrome issue but you can get a start menu using ClassicStart or Start8. You can look into Fences by Stardock (Start8 manu').

I've personally grabbed my theme I am using from CreativX and then used my own tweaks to the theme, plus that utility above - Then added Classic Start and tweaked it out.

Look into using a Google account to keep your favorites or do what I did, get LastPass and XMarks and never have any issues :)
