Google Chrome Freezes Up Entire System

    Google Chrome Freezes Up Entire System

    I upgraded my laptop to Windows 8 around the new year, and until about June everything worked just fine. Then, Google Chrome all of a sudden started freezing up the entire system and required a restart. I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it multiple times and every time the same thing happened. Every time I launched Chrome everything froze up. A month later I tried reinstalling it once again and the same thing happened. Is there anything that may be causing this, as it seems very strange for one single browser to have such an effect and I would very much like to switch back to Chrome.

    There is a setting to tell Chrome to run as a Tile App, but it is inside of the Chrome Settings. it can only be set when you have Chrome as default. Try changing your default back to IE, then try opening Chrome again: See if that setting had been checked. It shows up on the button on the right upper side with the three horizontal lines, it says "Open Chrome in Windows 8 Mode" - If that is checked, it may be trying to load Chrome into the Start Screen and choking in the process.
