Freezes on new tabs

Version 24.0.1312.52 m
 
1) Chrome does not always start. When it does start, I always get the message that Chrome did not shut down properly.
 
2) I cannot open more than 2 or 3 tabs. When I try to open additional tabs, the page starts to load but then freezes.
 
3) After I close Chrome, there are still several chrome*.exe processes shown in Task Manager.
 
4) I have run a full system virus scan (Norton) with no problems found.
 
5) I uninstalled Chrome and reinstalled it. This fixed the problem, but the next day the problem was back.

I uninstalled Java and the problem I was having with Chrome disappeared. I do not know whether this is related to the recent wave of hacker attacks on Java-enabled browsers.

OK, so after many uninstalls/reinstalls of chrome/adobe flash/java (I even did a complete windows image reload!) - I finally solved my problem. Turns out it was a chrome extension called TooManyTabs that was causing my particular issues. It had been working fine for months, but obviously clashes with the latest version of chrome.... anyway, disabled the extension and everything is now running fine.
Hope this might help one or two of you....

ah no sadly i don't have that extension to remove, and removing the new java thing didn't stop it either... if i click off the blank tab, onto another tab, and then back to the frozen blank one, then it seems to wake it up and it works again. very frustrating tho :(

ok, well actually, my wifes computer also started showing your symptoms yesterday...
 
The way we fixed it was as follows - go into chrome://flags and disable the following;
 
"Threaded compositing Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS
Uses a secondary thread to perform web page compositing. This allows smooth scrolling, even when the main thread is unresponsive."
 
Let me know if this helps? I know how frustrating these issues can be. It took me a day and a half to "fix" my problem, but luckily in only took 10 minutes to fix my wifes pc.
