I have no experience with Chrome. First time opening a magnet with Chrome I got this:

chrome magnet

You can check that qBittorrent is in fact the default for handling magnet links in Windows. I didn't manage to find the url settings in Chrome. You can try a clean install of Chrome- perhaps you screwed up that initial query. I would suggest making sure you're logged into Chrome prior to uninstallation so you don't lose your bookmarks and sundry. You could also try Firefox (or even Explorer just to check that Chrome is mishandling the link, not Windows).
