Chrome seems to have been a dud from day 1. I tried it briefly, and it bogged down my 'puter like only Microsoft could have done previously. It's definitely a blemish on Google's brand as far as I'm concerned. Very disappointing.

The processes is the main reason I don't like chrome.Don't understand what these processes is used for? I just open chrome with a blank tab, it has seven chrome.exe in the task manager. It also crash very often in a period of time. Now, I mainly use Avant browser with Firefox engine, only one process and use less momery. Still use chrome occasionally.

I am having the same problem on my Laptop and probably these background processes are eating into my broadband traffic so much so that my month's quota has gotten over in just about a week Still investigating!

I guess, the cloud print feature will have to run in background else, your printers wont be accesible from anywhere else. Try disabling this feature in settings
