Site problems with Chrome W10

I'd previously moved from IE to Chrome under 8.1 (now 10) but recently I've had a load of hangs using the website and crashes under Chrome as well. I googled up some articles about crashing under 64 bit W10, and I'm now running it under Firefox and seems ok so far.
We did recently get a W10 upgrade, so perhaps something to do with that, but SpeyPages is particularly bad under Chrome, but other sites do hang as well.
Anyone else seeing these?
Cheers,
S

First of all Windows 10 bites!! Contana even if you turn it off will use 30% or more of your processor speed.

MicroSoft themselves caused the problem with Chrome when they made the change that contana would ONLY work with their MS Edge Browser and Bing - but it's like you have to give your life story to get a GOOD search request.

Microsoft blocks Google Chrome & other browsers from Cortana in latest Windows 10 release

I sent MicroSoft an email saying okay if you're forcing that allow us to delete Cortana and Edge and block Bing!! Sorry we can't it's integrated into the operation system. I was buying a new laptop and had to get a Win10 and within 2 days reset it to factory condition and took it back.

Finally found and bought a Win 8.1 machine and turned off auto updates so it couldn't go to 10. Anyone whose machine put them to 10, if you have your recovery disk you should be able to go back to 8.0 or 8.1. You can also try System Restore and tell your machine to go back to a previous day when you know a previous OS was there. Trying that on my brother in laws machine to see if 10 is going to block it out.

The folks that were truly hurt were some of the older folks who only had a machine for email and skype and their machines auto updated to win10 - machines unless you upgraded your ram and processors don't have enough to run win10.

The 'old,' and it is old, lap top I use 95% of the time still runs XP. Program was, and remains, Rock Solid. Newer machine has one of the current programs and its a pain in the A$$.

Try clearing away your cookies in Chrome and see if anything improves. Do you have any extensions installed?

I ran the "chrome cleaner" which disabled all extensions, of which I had Norton for security etc.
But this problem has only arisen in the past week or so, previously it had been steady as a rock. Now within seconds the page hangs and has to be killed. The new page also hangs within a few page clicks or even just doing nothing.
Needless to say I'm using Firefox to view/post this.

Which links are crashing under Chrome? Can you post them here? I don't have Win10 but we'll get someone on the team to test this out.

I've recently returned to Chrome to see if it has improved and the experience is much better, though there still have been a few Shockwave crashes, so I assume that it had something to do with it.
Chrome automatically downloads Flash updates, so perhaps one was fixed in the past few days.
As an aside, Firefox was also crashing during Chrome's unstable period, but not as frequently as Chrome, though exiting altogether mid click. Chrome just became unresponsive and a kill/wait popup came up. I assume a Windows or application/plugin update came in in the past few days to rectify the problem.

Working here.

But this old lap top is 15 or more years old. Still works, Still trying to figure out how to get the 'new one' to work. Lady who does my house cleaning ..... "What button did you push on that thing?"

" I don't know."

"What is it with you old men?"

Finger tips flying .... works again.

Crikey Fred a 15 year old laptop would be a slow as all sh*te! I think your smartphone would have more horsepower than that thing.
As much as w10 gets some bad press, it can't be any worse than any of the other Windows os', at least there is development and bug releases coming out.
I'd say pretty much anything before w8 is end of life with no support.
If you were really desperate, you could buy xp off ebay or other and install that on your new machine. Why not bite the bullet and buy a book on Windows 10 from amazon?
