Hi,

If you do NOT open Chrome, does Windows still freeze?

OK. Does it still freeze if you boot in Safe Mode?

In Safe Mode, please try the following:

1. Click Start
2. In the search box, type cmd
3. In the list that appears, right-click on cmd.exe and choose Run as administrator
4. In the command window that opens, type sfc /scannow and hit enter.

Report the output from the command window once it finishes.

More detail: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I ran the scannow and the message was:

windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations

Thats good. Back in Safe Mode:

Examine your services and startups in MSCONFIG. Disable everything except the Microsoft services and your antivirus software. Now reboot in Normal Mode - do not open Chrome. Do you still get freezes?

See METHOD 3, Steps 4 and 5 here:
Startup Programs - Change

What antivirus software and firewall do you currently use?

I followed your steps. I can find AVG Internet Security startup item but I cannot find Microsoft service startup item.

Look in the services tab - disable everything that is not related to Microsoft Corporation and AVG
