I am running Chrome version 10.0.648.205 with Windows XP. Regularly (about every two hours if I am using the computer) and almost every time if I leave the computer with Chrome running, the Internet will grind to a halt. Pages will barely load and typically I will get Chrome "not responding"

If I close Chrome and run CCleaner, it will tell me that I have to close the Chrome Cache if I want it to be cleaned - I will have to run CCleaner 5 or 6 times before this message goes away and the cache is cleaned.

If I close Chrome and open the Task manager, there is always one or two "chrome.exe" left running in the processes list. If I close them from Task manager, then CCleaner runs fine.

After I have done this, typically everything runs fine until the next time. Occasionally (like this morning) Chrome starts slow and doesn't get any faster so I have to repeat the steps above over and over again until it finally runs correctly.

Right now, it is working fine and I have one screen open (this one) in Chrome and four "chrome.exe" entries in the task manager processes list.

Can anyone help me?

I had this same issue, and never found a resolution. I went back to Firefox and removed Chrome.
