Yikes back of to do list
if you like Windows defender so much please download Microsoft security essentials as said it's the same thing,
Now days no matter what you use for a antivirus program you really do need a specialized malware utility,

I would also recommend this cookies monster both are free along with MSE

This could be a case of hardware acceleration in Chrome,

Hmm I don't even have the GPU hardware acceleration option in my experiments list. The closest thing I found when I did a CTRL+F for 'gpu' was GPU rasterization which isn't even available for my platform apparently.

It's not that I enjoyed windows defender, it just was there. I used malware bytes a ton at my IT job, and it worked well usually, but the free version is more of a malware deletion tool than a prevention one. I watched for two years how users would constantly get viruses, so I'm pretty confident in my ability to avoid them. The only ones that I'm probably decently vulnerable to are those nasty backdoors that you hear exploited from popular software, but then again those are usually discreet enough to get past even the most expensive antivirus programs.

Okay games/ gaming is the easiest way to pick up a bunch of crap,
It could just be Chrome's new 64 bit version not quite compatible it is still beta to the public,
test with Internet explorer and possibly another browser of your choosing/ Firefox.....

interestingly, I found the hardware acceleration option while actually looking at a totally different issue with chrome. Oddly a couple of videos on youtube would play sound but the video was just a black screen. I wanted to see if maybe it was HTML5, but I didn't know how to turn it off. I naturally went into the regular Chrome settings to look for it and instead of finding HTML5, I found the settings for hardware acceleration. I turned it off and funny enough it actually fixed my youtube issue. I guess it stopped being an experimental option and put it as a normal option in some update. That would make the page you linked me out of date, so I'd suggest having someone update it. As for the chrome cut off issue, I will try to go to 1080p and increase my DPI I guess.

Here's a screenshot of the option because why not. It's under "show advance settings" and at the very bottom.

I believe the setting has always been under advanced settings :/
I messaged the tutorial creator to test it with the new version thanks for the heads up

The new version of Chrome has only been out a couple weeks now and has been self updating for users so there's no telling when you got the new version but do you think that's when the issue started ?
Not the youtube issue the original issue

welp, I tried with both 125% and 150% DPI, and I'm unable to recreate the issue. I'm going to say it's an issue with Hardware Acceleration in their new update then. I have been having issues with chrome lately, I hope things get better. I love Google, and I love chrome, so I don't really want to have to switch to Firefox or something. I'll report back if the issue ends up reoccurs
