This problem started a few days ago on my four year old Toshiba laptop. Windows 7 and Google Chrome. When I click on, for example, NYTimes.com icon on my desktop, an all white unresponsive desktop appears. I can only close it by right-clicking on the Times icon in the task bar.
Also, just now when accessing Bleeping Computer, the login page froze.
Does anyone know how to fix this?
