I just upgraded my Win7 laptop at work from LO 5.3.3 to 5.3.4, and it
insisted I close my Chrome and Slack apps.

Why is LO messing with Chrome and Slack settings?

Windows installer asking you to close some applications does not mean that
LibreOffice is messing with any settings whatsoever. It can trigger for a
variety of reason, the most common being that a shared library updated by
this install process is currently loaded by a running program. Windows
Installer detect this, and ask the user to either close the offending
process or keep going as-is and update the files after a reboot.‚Äč

Assuming you got a legit installer from the official website (to rule out
some shady providers) I don't know exactly what triggers this behavior in
your case. But it can be as simple as chrome having the Windows Explorer
DLL loaded and the LibreOffice installer updating its Explorer plugin.
