I did a bunch of Googling around. Every time I open Google Chorme, My entire taskbar freezes up. I cannot use start menu nor work with anything on the taskbar for about 5 minutes after Google Chrome is completely closed. Google suggests that Internet Download Manager is the culprit. but I never once downloaded IDM or ever heard of it. but my computer has the same symptoms!


any help would be appreciated
