Questions regarding extensions for Google Chrome

Hi guys!

I am running the current stable version of Google Chrome on both my laptop and work computer.  At work my OS is Windows XP and recently Chrome has been sucking up my memory and CPU. While monitoring task manager,  I noticed that several Chrome processes are continuing to run after I have closed my browser. I've tried finding more information on this but have been unsuccessful.
Have others reported extensions continuing to run after closing the browser on Windows XP? How can I determine which extensions are running after closing my browser?

Thanks.

Hello!

If it's still running on background, why not try killing it using the Task Manager?

Follow these steps:

  • Open Task Manager Ctrl+Alt+Del
  • In the Processes tab, select the Desired Process
  • Right Click and select End Process

I hope this solves your problem. Also, you can uninstall a certain extension on Chrome if you're suspicious of it. A Google Chrome extensions is just beside the wrench Icon. Try right clicking the extension icon then select uninstall.

I hope this solves your problem.

Regards

In order to stop Google Chrome from running in the background of your PC, you should stop the processes of Google Chrome. If your using Windows XP in your PC or laptop, press CTRL+ALT+DEL.

The task manager will appear. Click on the Processes tab and on the Processes tab, you will find all the applications that are running in your computer. Look for anything that is related to Google Chrome like Google update, Google Chrome extensions. Click on the specific running process and press on “end process”. This will stop the program from running in the background of your PC. Also, if you want to remove a certain extension in your Google Chrome, just open Google Chrome and look for a wrench at the upper right portion of the browser.

Click it and a tab will open. Go to tool and there you will see the extension.

Just click on the desired extension to uninstall.

Hello Dear,

This is due to some viruses. Sometimes, we open files but when we close them, usually these files close, but they stack up in Chrome. We can see this in the task manager.

Some viruses keep files and applications busy to reduce the performance of your PC. As you said, these are not extensions that are running behind Chrome.

Just press CTRL + ALT + DELETE keys. They will open the task manager.

Click on “process” and right click on Chrome and click on “End Process Tree”. It will ask you to confirm by pressing YES.

It will close these files, and the computer will perform better. Thanks.
