Recently switched browsers to Google Chrome as IE was having severe issues. Worked great at first, now i am experiencing something weird. Athlon 2GHZ with 1.43 Gig Ram and XP service pack 3. Click on chrome one chrome shows up under the "applications" tab of task manager, but 4 copies of it are shown running on the "processes" tab. CPU usage spikes to 100%, divided among a couple of the Chrome.exe processes. Page file jumps up to 1.3 Gig from 294 meg. Chrome just sits there for 2-3 minutes, cpu steady at 100%. Then it fluctuates between 50-100%, for a minute, then drops down to 0-10% fluctuation. At that point Chrome starts working and will load a page, if you click on a bookmark or enter a URL before the CPU drops to 10% it just waits and no network activity. Ran several spyware/malware/antivirus scans and nothing. Any ideas what's going on?
