    Chrome freezing

    For the past 3 week I find Chrome freezes and I have to ctrl + alt + delete to close. I have made no changes to my Laptop.
    I used my friend Laptop diffrent network his Chrome freezes but Chrome recovers after about 3 seconds?
    I used Chrome for many years no problem. Both Laptops running Win 10.
    Thanks

    This could be the result of recent Win 10 updates.

    System Protection is usually off by default in Win 10, but you can check if yours is on and if so, use the restore points back to when it didn't freeze.

    Either way, it would be prudent to check this even if in this instance it's a case of stable door and bolted horse.

    This article also contains some useful internal links that can help you control auto updates.

    If you don't have any restore points, this article will help you to uninstall recent updates to see if any of those were the cause.

    If you are on the Insider Build Fast Track, note this issue :
    •As reported by Insiders on the build 10525, 64 bit Google Chrome will crash on launch. Google is aware of the issue. In the meantime their 64 bit Google Chrome Canary build or 32 bit Google Chrome will work on this build.

    I've been having a similar problem with Chrome freezing, usually when multiple windows are open. I'm running under Windows 7, so the other replies don't seem to apply to my case. Any other thoughts?

    Do you have AVAST anti-virus, by any chance? If so, try disabling the "Web Shield" and see if it fixes the problem. If so, open the main AVAST windows, click on Settings, Active protection, WebShield, Customize, and uncheck the box for "Use HTTPS scanning" or similar words. Click OK or Save to exit and close the AVAST windows.

    Just discovered the freezing only happens with multiple Windows open.
    However, chrome is back to normal?
