Pages and tabs stop navigating when I switch between tabs

Over the last three/four weeks I have been experiencing tabs that will stop navigating when I switch to another tab. It started in Chrome, then migrated it’s way into Edge and then to BRAVE.

Initially I thought it was a Chrome upgrade and reverted to an older installation, only to be met with the same stoppage. So I avoided using Chrome and stuck to Edge and BRAVE.
A few days later, Edge started doing the exact same thing, when I switched between tabs and then to BRAVE.
The day after that I was exclusively running only BRAVE and that is when BRAVE stop navigating pages when I switched between tabs,
I have tried running more than one page in separate browsers only with the same result.
Thinking this may be some type of virus, I ran PCMatic, MALwarebytes, CCleaner and each of the Browsers’ internal clean mode.
Again thinking this may be a Windows problem, I wiped my hard drive with a total install of Windows 10. Initially it appeared to rectify the problem, but with an hour I was again having tabs and browsers stop navigating when I switched between them.

I would like to be able to browse and game at the same time.
