Web pages freezing on Chrome

by thequeenofcurdsandcream / January 19, 2013 10:38 PM PST

I've been using Chrome for a few months now. A couple of months ago I noticed that web pages were freezing when I was on Facebook, but now I get frozen web pages everwhere, and extremely frequently, especially with my email account. I keep a few open tabs, receive a notification of a new email (or new messages in FB) but when I go to that tab the page has frozen and I need to reload. In addition I've started to have issues with uploading pictures to a website I write for. When I try to upload an image and go back to my article there is no HTML, just a blank area. I've been overcoming this by uploading using IE, but it's not my browser of choice and it's a nuisance running two browsers. Do you think it's just a simple issue, such as uninstalling and then reinstalling Chrome, or is there something else I could do?
I'm running Windows 7 on a Dell Vostro.

As scripts on web pages can loop forever there is no real cure for this one. This is why I have no less than 3 web browsers on my PC.

PS. Some use a Script Stopper.
