    I am running Windows 10 home on a laptop. When I boot the system it is very slow. I go into task manager and it shows 97% cpu usage. It also shows that Chrome has at least 6 open browser folders open...How can I stop this?
    Thank you

    When you start Chrome, does it open multiple tabs?

    Chrome does use a few processes so it's not something you can stop. Hopefully plodr's suggestions will work.
