    My browsers are hidden

    I'm not sure if this is even a Windows 10 problem. I've had this issue for a while, and I used to have to restart (or wait) to get it to resolve.

    When I try to open either IE or Chrome, the icons appear at the bottom of the screen and if I left-click it a small browser window is visible right above the icon, but it won't open normally. In the past I tried various combinations of the arrow keys and cntrl,alt, the windows button, etc. and once or twice I got it up there.

    The problem used to happen after I already had a browser open and then wasn't active for a while. Now, like I said, it's there from the get-go.

  2. My browsers are freezing

    Go over the
    Windows 10 Performance and Install Integrity Checklist - Microsoft Community
    to make sure the install is set up correctly, optimized for best performance, and any needed repairs
    get done.

    If any steps cannot be performed in Windows, then try Safe Mode with Networking following

    How to enter Windows 10's Safe Mode
    . Test also if the freezing occurs in Safe Mode, which if not could indicate a network driver issue. Do you have the latest wireless LAN driver installed from the PC's Support Download's webpage?

    If you actually have three anti-viruses then that right there is probably the problem since you should only have one at a time, and for best performance of Windows that should always be Defender as all others cause issues. So test now with only Defender
    as you work through the steps to go over your install.

    In addition compare with connection via ethernet instead of wireless to see if the problem persists, since you said it only pertains to the browser and internet. What happens if you check for Updates?

    Feel free to ask back any questions and let us know how it goes.

    My browsers are freezing

    Alright here we go,

    The problem:

    Any time i attempt to access the internet on my computer the program i am using freezes. This is not limited to internet browsers ANYTHING that needs the internet to work freezes but i can do anything system wise that i want.

    Here are the facts:

    My computer is wirelessly connected to the router

    The router is connected to the internet

    The internet is working or i would not be able to post this from my phone

    Not likely the result of a virus. I have run scans from avast McAfee and windows defender

    I have tried running a clean startup no help

    What ya got fer me
