    Chrome tabs in startup list?

    I have a clean Windows installation with a new X Hero motherboard and I have found startup to be very slow (25.8 seconds) I have noticed in Task Manager that Chrome is in the Startup list with 19 instances. This surely is the slow boot cause..

    My question is why has Chrome made it's way to startup and what are the 19 instances? I am assuming that this is somehow initiated with a clean Chrome installation. I also have a Chrome icon in the app tray (Let Google Chrome run in the background)

  2. Utorrent and Chrome auto starting

    Using the task manager startup tab, neither Utorrent nor Chrome are listed. Utorrent starts even though I've unchecked the startup tab. Also now Windows 10 keeps removing the Chrome icon on the task bar but continues to auto start Chrome and goes to
    the last page I was working on rather than the home page.

  3. Chrome still in startup after uninstalling Chromium

    what i have uninstalled is the chromium not the google chrome.... but after uninstalling chromium it seems like its name changed from chromium to "chrome" in the startup tab(im referring to the encircled one).... also look at the icon of that chromium
    in the startup tab, after i uninstalled, it turns into a square Tab....

    when i try to right click this, the option for location is grayed out

    Chrome tabs in startup list?

    When you install chrome, it has option to make it run at startup. Apparently you did not uncheck this option. You can change it by:
    Right click on the taskbar->Startup then right click on Chrome->Disable

    Yep, this is normal when you run Chrome.

    There is no Startup option from a right click menu on the taskbar. I take it you meant disable Chrome from the startup tab in Task Manager...

    I know that it's normal to have many instances of Chrome in the Processes tab of Task Manager. I was referring to the 19 instances of Chrome in the Startup tab, like this:

    I had a Chrome icon running in the app tray. When I right clicked on it it said "keep Chrome running in the background". I un-ticked it and now it no longer shows in Task Manager as it did in the screenshot above. The icon has permanently gone from the app tray to it seems.

    I'm guessing that Chrome can be configured during installation to run at startup as I apparently chose. I have no idea exactly what processes it loads with Windows though.
