Hello my name is Chris R and I would be happy to assist you today.

I know what you are talking about with the incognito window in Google Chrome, but I am not sure why it would be causing you to have computer problems. It most certainly should not be freezing your system causing you to have to manually restart the machine. It is just a special browser mode that lets you browse the internet without having the websites you visit stored in the browser history. Do you recall when this started happening? Did it start when you installed any new software or updates? Is there anything you have already done to try and fix the problem?
