Question

All my browsers hang after 5-10 minutes

I'm using Windows 10. I usually use Chrome, but recently it's been hanging after using it for a bit, from 5 to 30 minutes or so. When it happens, I can't get onto Firefox or Edge either. But I can email, use Google Earth, Calendar, and anything else that doesn't require a browser. I have to reboot to get the browsers going again. I updated all my drivers, and ran the only diagnostics that I've gotten to work on Windows 10 - AdAware and Spybot (can't get MalwareBytes or Microsoft Fix-It to run on Windows 10). The internet troubleshooter says everything is ok. Any ideas?

Please check if your browser is up to date? And also avoid opening too many tabs at same time, if you are doing so.
