    Computer screen freezes on many websites

    Within the last week or so my computer screen has been freezing a lot.
    I can still move my cursor with my mouse but hovering over a link does nothing (usually it changes from an arrow to a hand).
    Then a window will pop up asking if I want to kill a program or wait. Clicking cancel or kill prompts another window which says "Snap!"
    I open the site in another tab and everything is fine for a while - then it happens again. Any ideas? Thanks!!

    win 10 home

    The symptoms read like a viral infection; or worse, remote PC hijacking.
