Older Dell Vostro laptop, Vista. Works OK but sound is distorted on youtube and other sound effetcs and Task manager shows very high CPU use (at or near 100 usually). Ran ccCleaner, and malwarebytes (removed about 150 threats) with some improvement but not full functionality. Also running AVG free anti-virus, Google chrome browser. Any suggestions?

This is normal as every tab opened or extension running in Chrome has it's own process. If you had over 100 threats removed you may want to start a thread in the Am I Infected Forum or the Virus Removal Forum. There may be something still on the system.
