Google Chrome has been sporadically causing my system to freeze. It may work fine for a few days, or for less than twenty-four hours. Without warning, the browser will suddenly begin reading and waiting on its cache, and become unresponsive. When I try to force quit the application, the system locks up and Finder will freeze but imputs are still responsive, causing me to have to do a hard reboot. Once rebooted, Spotlight re-indexes my hard drive [which I believe is a separate issue (mdworker unable to talk to lsboxd)]. This only occurs with Google Chrome and is not replicable with other browsers or applications.


I have cleared all caches and reset my PRAM and SMC controller, but the issue persists. Any thoughts?
