For the past two days I have had issues with Chrome which freezes on start up and does not load homepage or any website. This happened at work and at home, I was fretting that I might have a virus on the computers. I scanned the drives and found no problem, everything worked fine with Firefox so I tried Googling and found someone with a similar problem.

I tried the solution offered by someone on the forum and it seems to do the trick:

  • Open Chrome and click on the Menu key (3 horizontal lines icon)
  • At the bottom of the screen you will find Show Advanced option, click on it and scroll down
  • At the bottom you will find Hardware Acceleration uncheck this option.
  • Exit Chrome and then restart Chrome

I hope this helps you.
