Not sure what this is about, everything was fine then Chrome and other programs started locking up. When I rebooted, the boot process was slow, and everything else was too, and kept locking up. I suspected (but may be wrong) that it had something to do with a third party program that I had just installed called ClassicShell on Windows 10. I wasn't too impressed with it so I uninstalled it. When I tried to uninstall Chrome in order to reinstall it, it kept saying I had to close the Chrome window even though Chrome was closed. I went into the Task Manager and saw Chrome listed several times. I closed all those, uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome, and rebooted. Eventually things seemed to return to normal, but when I look at Task Manager, it still shows Chrome is loaded several times over (see the attached snip).

Hi, this is normal, it is by design, chrome loads separate processes for web apps and plugins from the browser process so if a plugin fails or web app the browser is not taken down... much more complicated then this, still you should get the idea.

You can view what these processes are in chrome click on the three bars (far right corner) go to more tools and click on task manager, here you can see the chrome processes detailed. Happens on all machines.

Thanks. After I posted that, I noticed these were processes, not the program. Point is moot now anyway because my computer has crashed and won't boot (using wife's pc). I've had mine in the shop twice in the last couple of months, tired of throwing money at it, time for a new one.
