over the past few days, we have been having an issue with google chrome on random pages at completely random times, just coming up with the box asking if we want to kill the page or wait. There has also been times where it says it cant resolve a website and then instantly after loads it fine, this happens to both the PC's on the same network. I have tried a few steps to fix it which i have noted below also both the computers are running windows 7.

Reinstalling Chrome
Run chrome cleanup tool
Updating chrome
updating windows 7 with all optional updates

Even after all these steps still experiencing the same issues.

Can you pull up Task Manager and observe Chrome's usage of memory and CPU?  What is that compared to the specs of the PCs?  How much memory do they have and what is their CPU specifications?

When looking at chrome in task manager its averaging about 350,000 kb to 400,000 kb the total Memory usage on the PC is 3gb. As for CPU usage its averaging to about 30% usage, these are both with 4 tabs open on chrome.

Specs are

Intel Core i5-4460 @ 3.2ghz
4GB ddr3 ram
64 bit windows 7

That is the same for both PCs

I recommend getting more memory for the machine.  Windows 7 OS by itself needs AT LEAST 1-2GB memory.

If you add more memory, then this should alleviate the issue with Chrome using up a lot of your machine's memory and slowing down the machine.  Most computers nowadays need at least 8GB of memory to run without performance issues (In most cases, Windows OS uses at least 2-4 GB itself and any additional larger scale applications need 1-2GBs).  For example, my macbook had 4GB of memory and it was pretty slow and laggy when I used Chrome.  And I use Chrome A LOT, with a lot of tabs and profiles.  So I upped the memory to 16GB and did not see issues with slowness anymore.

If you can, test out adding more memory and let me know if you see improvement or not.
