  2. Chrome keeps freezing on Windows 10

    Hi Pat,



    There may be a few reasons why your Google Chrome keeps on freezing. One reason is the browser that you're using. For us to further isolate your concern, we need you to answer the following:



    • Is this happening on other browsers as well (e.g. Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox)?
    • Does the issue persist only on a specific website or it occurs on all websites?


    Let us know if you're still getting the same error after performing our suggested troubleshooting step so we can assist further.

    Hi Sunny,

    Windows Explorer freezes may be due to third-party programs or virus infection. As an initial troubleshooting step, temporarily disable your antivirus programs. After that, replicate the issue if it will freeze. You can enable your antivirus program after
    we troubleshoot.

    If the issue persists, you can try refreshing/restarting Windows Explorer by following these steps:

    • Open Task Manager by typing it in the Cortana search bar, then press Enter.
    • Look for Windows Explorer, then right-click it and select End task.
    • The taskbar will disappear at the bottom of your screen.
    • On the Task Manager, look for any installed application like your browser.
    • Right-click it and select the Open file location. A new window will appear.
    • Click the File tab and select Open Windows Powershell, then select Open Windows Powershell as administrator.
    • Type in explorer.exe and press Enter.

    It should put the taskbar back at the bottom of your screen. Check if it will freeze again.

    Keep us posted after performing the troubleshooting steps.
