If you can get to the settings, change your home page and see if the problem persists. If so, look elsewhere for problems, such as a graphics driver update. If the change of home page fixes things, then blame the page you were on before. They might have added a bad advertisement which was taking too long to download which then freezes the page.
Once you are sure, in a couple of weeks, change your home page back and see if the error is still there.
