    Every time I shut down my computer (Windows XP) I get a box that pops up to end called chrome.exe.
    How do I stop this from popping up every time I shut down the computer.

    chrome.exe is the process for Google Chrome.

    This may be due to Background Apps in Google Chrome.


    1. Click the Chrome menu [​IMG] in the browser toolbar.
    2. Select Settings.
    3. Click Show advanced settings.
    4. In "Background Apps" section, deselect "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed" checkbox.

    I have the latest version of Google Chrome. I thin it was the Google Cloud Print. It works fine now. Thanks again!
