    Chrome freeze --- is there finally a fix?

    My new work laptop has the Chrome-freeze problem. That is, when I click/focus on a Chrome window everything freezes for a second or two ... and then resumes. Very annoying

    No such problem with other apps. It even has me using IE just to avoid the problem. Yes ... the freeze is annoying enough for me to use IE for the first time in 15 years! I've sunken that low!

    But enough is too much! Is there a fix?

    Someone online said "I had Chrome 74 ... and I fixed the problem by reverting to an older version." Well ... I have version 84 ... and I'm on a corporate locked-down laptop so I can't install a different version.

    Online folk remedies include resetting the graphics driver with ctrl alt windows pump-iron push-ups jumping-jacks granola B, or some such contortion. Didn't work.

    Reboot. Didn't work either.

    Is there a fix? Or am I condemned to use IE?

    Have you disabled all extensions ?

    Have you cleared all browsing data ?

    Is your Corporate locked down laptop using a VPN or maybe a proxy server ?

    What AV is in use ?

    Any other privacy / security tools loaded on by corporate ?

    Has Corporate enforced any other options is Chrome settings ?
