I restarted it, and CHIRP wouldn't run. Uninstalled and then downloaded again and installed. Still will not run.; Getting frustrated.

Hi Skip,

The "chirp.config" file got corrupted when your computer locked up.
Just got to the folder where it is located (the same place as the
"debug.log" file) and either rename it or erase it. The next time you
launch CHIRP, a new "chirp.config" file will be created and CHIRP will
open as if it was a brand new install.

This link below takes you to a page that explains how to fine the
debug.log file.
