I've been working on this for a couple weeks now, off and on. My girlfriend's computer, which I built, has a nasty habit of freezing like a slow motion train wreck when loading or attempting to play a video on youtube.com. Basically, Firefox freezes and if you try to end the process, it has no effect. Shortly after attempting to end the process, the cursor freezes on screen and the computer is essentially completely frozen. I've checked the task manager for unfamiliar processes and I am constantly running Windows Defender. I occasionally run Malwarebytes Anti-malware and I keep the computer occasionally defrag, clean temp files, and other general maintenance. I am not as diligent as it is not my computer.
