    Out of the blue, when I click on the Chrome icon to open Google, it does bring up the home web page but if I look in Task Manager, there can be any number of home pages from 10 to 20 all being 0% CPU usage and with the expected memory usage.

    Going to "Details" in Task manager it shows them as all "running" and just by watching, the number of the Chrome pages jumps all over the place e.g. inc/dec

    Priority is set to "Normal"

    If I "end task" on each of them, they simply pop back up again ......................?

    I've run Malware, antivirus and even Trend Home Visit but nothing shows!

    A Google search for this problem brings up many other users all with the same issue but their suggested responses don't do anything to help me fix this annoying issue!

    Any help or advice appreciated!

    Chrome does have a few processes that starts up, which is normal.

    I noticed when I was switching between tabs, the processes were changing (add/remove, depending on the tab) so it could be the content of the 'webpage' that you are viewing... the tab that I was showing an extra process is the New Tab ...

    Those are processes not web pages, and it's totally normal. That's how Chrome works.

    Chrome with no extensions, no logins, and just one open tab will still show several chrome.exe processes.

    Yeah I opened Chrome fresh and had about 10 of them opened. When I was on youtube a few more showed up.

    If you are not being slowed down at all, there is nothing to be worried about.
