Windows 7: Multiple Chrome.exe processes

19 Jul 2015   #51

Windows 7 Home Premium


Let's find out what is starting in Google, if anything...

Please download to the Desktop the Free version of CCleaner:
Download > CCleaner - Download

Once downloaded, run the installer, and do not accept to install any other suggested software.

When the main CCleaner program opens, click on: Tools > Startup > Google tab
Use the Save to Text file button (lower right) to obtain the information listed on the Google tab, and save the Startup.txt file to the Desktop.

Please post the Startup report in your reply.

I have been continuing my evaluation of the re-installed Chrome v 43 and find things about the same as always...going fine for a while and then I get the slow loading tabs, unresponsive tabs as I described before. I have now run the CCleaner per your instructions and am attaching the file. Hope this helps. And, again, you are being so very helpful...and patient!

If cottonball doesn't mind me asking weybrew in CCleaner > Tools > take a look at Duplicate Finder and see what is in there - I find it quite surprising sometimes how certain files tend to duplicate.

Hi again, ICIT2LOL. I ran CCleaner and the duplicate file finder listed only some torrent files that I have positioned deliberately. Thanks for your thoughts.

Wee can give this a shot...
Too many entries at Startup can make the browser slow and often decrease stability.

Using CCleaner again, would Disable a few extensions at a time, open Chrome and see if it starts and runs fine.

If no luck, disable a few more, and do the same.
See if you can pin-point the culprit.

You can later select any disabled entries in CCleaner and click Enable to turn back on.
Do not use the Delete button.

I have now tried Chrome with NO extensions/addon enabled. All symptoms continue...start up usually OK, but it will hang up occasionally...on start up I would hang up on one tab (starting Firefox for comparison had no problems with that same tab URL). In general, performance is spotty, again, with NO addons active.

After all your hard work...and time...and that of others who have offered suggestions, I am resigned to me being forced to abandon Chrome. I had gotten used to the sluggishness and "unresponsive" web pages as a normal operating situation, but now that I have returned to Firefox (I switched to Chrome because Firefox loaded pages erratically) and find it to be much faster and not so temperamental, I'll stick with it until something makes me switch again.

So, unless you have another magic arrow, I'll thank all Windows SevenForums contributors again for helping me, and accept the inevitable.

Ah well these little mysteries pop up from time to time mate and me I have always IE I really don't see any advantage in using other browsers even though other reckon they are faster. I just hit a query and in the blink of an eye the options for what I ant are there but there again I am just a general user.

Like cottonball suggested I also think it is worth disabling everything in the start up tab - I do mine through msconfig but each to his own.
While I am thinking of it I did get a tip by A Guy or Layback Bear a long time ago to uncheck everything in the Boot tad in msconfig because I was starting with four core etc etc thinking it would be faster when in fact it made it slower. so worth a look in there too see pics.
msconfig > Start > type msconfig > Run as admin (right click) > set and close > restart if you want to although the settings will take place next time you power up. (Sorry if I am telling your grandmother how to suck eggs)

A good tutorial if you would like to follow some of the tips Optimize Windows 7
