Cannot load webpages when logged in to Google account

This just started today and I cannot work out why or how to fix it. When logged into my Google account in Chrome (on a laptop), no websites will load. There is no error message, just the spinning circle to indicate it is doing something.

I tried using Microsoft Edge and that worked fine, could browse websites and login to Gmail. But then Edge prompted me to import settings from Chrome (including google account) and I clicked yes. Then Edge wouldn't load any websites either! If I choose to browse as a guest in Edge or incognito in Chrome then I can load websites.

Something must be wrong in my Google account but I have no idea what. I don't want to go resetting things at random.

Works fine for me.

Sign out of the website and back in? Sign out/in Google? Clear google's cookies?

Do you have Adblock plus extension? If so try and disable it.

I would remove any chrome extensions
Uninstall/Re-install Chrome
Set the start page to something like bbc.co.uk
if nothing else works see what firefox does.
If you really wanted to screw me up. You should have got to me earlier.
