I have tried everything. I have disabled all of my plug-ins (chrome://plugins/) and extensions (chrome://extensions), I've cleared all of my browsing data (chrome://settings/clearBrowserData). I've disabled my antivirus software (Kaspersky 2013), I've reinstalled Chrome, I've rebooted, I've connected to a different wireless network. But, it just won't load any pages. In fact, it is struggling to connect to the Internet at all because even if I try to enable Google Cloud Print in settings, it doesn't complete.
All other connections (Internet Explorer, Outlook, etc.) are fine. Chrome is the only one having a problem and it started when I opened a session and chose to 'Restore' previous session which included about 15 tabs. It seemed to load the page titles for most of them correctly (indicating it got some connection) and then didn't load the body of the page and stalled. It has failed to load anything since then.
Something has really messed up, and nothing I do seems to fix it. Is there any way of ripping Chrome's heart out and starting again, or are there any logs I can check to see where exactly it is stalling perhaps?
I'm a computer programmer by profession, so don't be afraid to suggest anything technically involved.
