    Google Tasks Unnecessary?


    When I examined the startup programs under Task Manager right after I did a cold boot, I noticed several instances of Google Chrome and Google Installer already running.

    Is that supposed to happen? Are those all necessary?

    Those are auto-updates for Google to automatically update Chrome without user intervention.

    I don't like Google Chrome because of this bloat and excessive RAM use. That's why I use IE.

    Then again, your specs are well capable of this so you can leave those alone.
