Several Chrome process uses different memory usage

Separated from this thread.

I often tabs up to 50 or more open in a browser, Chrome usually. When it's too performance slows down. Check in the process of task Mgr tab shows some of the Chrome.exe processes use only bit of RAM, less than 10 MB. A few show more than 100 MB and a 660MB.

When clicking to end a process, he asks that you want to end Chrome.exe? Does this mean that it will close all tabs?

Is there a way to know which particular tab uses a lot of RAM and end only dealing without closing others?


It is a matter of Google rather than Microsoft, but as I understand it, a closing process stop not the whole browser because "Google Chrome creates three types of processes: browser, converters and plug-ins."



I don't use Chrome so I can't experiment to you, but the second section says:

Google Chrome can have its own manager of tasks (see below), you can join by right-clicking on the title bar of the browser.  This Task Manager allows you to monitor the use of resources for each plugin, and web application rather than the whole browser.  It also allows you to kill the web applications or plug-ins that have stopped responding, without restarting the whole browser.

It's a little complex, but you may be able to use this Google Task Manager to get the information you're looking for.

    I googled this question in many different ways and read the post until my eyes crossed. Tried several different

    ideas, checks, analyses, etc.

    This is on a Dell inspirion 3847 running Windows 7 Pro Service pack 1

    a Intel pentium CPU [email protected] Ghz, 4 GB RAM, 1 TB HD (no graphics card or any other card in pci slot)

    a brother MFC7360 n printer connected to the USB port.

    The extent of the installed software is minimal, (only notable is Office 10, digital meal)

    (Digital software dining room is for the POS system), this computer is not the main computer that is running the POS system

    This computer is just linked to the actual POS in bar. (I stop this program and does not affect the)

    problem or situation that we were conducting.)

    (I can give list if necessary other software that is installed).

    And the essentially the only files on the computer (in addition to operating systems, programs, etc.) are Office, "Word files,

    Excel files.

    And a few txt, rtf, pdf, files (very small amount).

    first just noticed recently what happens, but I'm not the primary user on the computer. I checked

    and it seems that no new software or program have been recently installed or changed.  I have a little

    understanding of what the process Explorer exe is and it functions. (NOT a PRO, not a total newbie,)

    If all goes well enough to find help, and not enough to totally screw up.)

    I'll be watching this thread several times per day until solved if need more information, I'll give you...

    Here are the details of the problem:

    random computer freezes, or runs very slowly or get "out of memory" message (during the attempt

    to open any random program) and when...

    I opened the the Task Manager and in "processes" tab, it shows that there is:

    2 examples of "Explorer"exe "running... it uses a small amount of RAM (approx. 10-15 mb)(with nothing)

    Open, other than the Task Manager). Another example of "Explorer"exe "uses (starts on the same amount of)

    RAM use, without having to open anything else) it will start using more and more RAM up to uses almost all

    the available 4 gigabytes of RAM. Also during this process it uses randomly between 0 and 99% of the CPU.

    The CPU usage seems to vary (couldn't see any stable model).  the amount of RAM used begins bass

    then goes very high and the rest standing for this purpose during a random time. (then sometimes descends

    on its own within 1-5 min.). (sometimes does not lower for awhile). More details needed let me

    know, I'll check all speeds or time it takes for the situation to occur, (if necessary)


    I opened the location of two Explorer exe files (both take me C/Windows"... ». (same for both

    not a system 32 file, or any other subfolder, just to 'Windows '.

    The two exe process explore "Descriptions" are listed as Windows Explorer.

    I have "Complete the process" towards the 2nd exe explore (one with high memory usage), just that process and she stops to

    a short period of time (and all works well for the time), but even once, it reappears (no exact time frame on how long until)

    Returns), (can check again and again, if necessary), to see if time is right each time to restart the process.

    If I "End process" to the 1st exe explorer (one with normal memory usage), I lose my office. (which from what

    I understand what needs to happen).

    Also get the same results if the process of "End process Tree" for the 1st and 2nd explore exe.

    Checking "properties" of two everything seems the same info. On the 'details' tab shows all of Microsoft, not

    of course, what happens if an info is important. (any info where necessary, I get and publish as needed).

    I know more and different information is no "resource monitor". but was not sure what would happen if, any info of

  • How to extract the same song, several times using different bit rates or formats and store all the digital music files in WMP 12 default on the same HDD music library

    Using Windows Media Player 12 (w/under Windows 7), "can I ripping the same song, several times, using different bitrates & and/or formats and store all the digital music files in the music library by default WMP - 12, on the same hard drive?

    1.) #1 goal: tear up the same song repeatedly, w / "different rates" as a WMA file.

    2.) #2 goal: tear up the same song repeatedly, w / "different rates" as an mp3 file.

    3.) #3 objective: NOT to each subsequent copy (version) of the song, deleted & and/or replaced by the previous version of the song [even].

    4.) question Bottom Line Up Front--> is Windows Media Player 12 (included with the Windows 7 operating system) are able to achieve '#1 objectives; #2; & #3 above?

    5.) details/example: I want to tear the piece "Maria Maria by Carlos Santana" to my laptop as a Windows Media Audio [WMA] file.  In addition, I would like to rip the song 'Maria Maria' three several times with 3 different bitrates in format WMA; and, as an MP3 file.  Therefore, my final result wished (after the extraction process), will take place the four 4 audio files split up as follows: (a) 'Maria Maria by Carlos Santana'--> Format: file WMA; Ripped @128 Kbps bitrate.  (b) ' Maria Maria by Carlos Santana'--> Format: file WMA; Ripped to the "Variable bit rate; (c) ' Maria Maria by Carlos Santana'--> Format: file WMA; Ripped commissioning "Lossless." and (d). 'Maria Maria by Carlos Santana'--> Format: MP3 file. Ripped @256 Kbps bitrate.

    6.) my preference: I do NOT want to rename the file (s). {for example, 'Maria Maria by Carlos Santana' renamed/changed for--> "Maria_Maria_by_Carlos_Santana_128kbps.wma",...} 'Maria_Maria_by_Carlos_Santana_256kbps.mp3 '; etc.}.  In addition, I am not concerned about the additional disk space that will be consumed after multiple copies of the same song with different speeds of transmission and different formats.

    7.) my experience w / Windows Media Player 10 (w / the operating system of Windows XP): using WMP - 10, my goal (s) described above is not a problem at all.  Simply insert the CD purchased by Carlos Santana, containing the song "Maria Maria"... Select the desired Format (WMA; WMA VBR; WMA Lossless; or mp3)... Select the desired flow rate (WMA... 128/160/192kbps_mp3: 128/192/256/320 kbit / s; etc.) ; and click on the "RIP" button to start the copy process on the hard disk of of Carlos Santana's "Maria Maria".  This process (w / WMP-10) would result in having the same song, copied on the hard disk, with levels of quality different "audio" (via the different bit rate settings); regardless of the format (MP3/WMA) which was chosen.

    8.) my experience w / Windows Media Player 11 (w / the operating system of Windows XP): using WMP 11, to described above of my objective (s) could not be reached e-a-s-i-l-y.  The problem with WMP - 11 - in short - which was after the desired selection "Rip settings" tab 'Options' of WMP - 11 (i.e., Format & Bit Rate) and heart-wrenching piece wanted to {'Maria Maria by Carlos Santana'} a moment later/second, WMP11 remove / would crush the previous version of the song [even].  Therefore, the program would NOT allow the user to have multiple copies of the same song on the hard drive of the PC; which obviously restricts a user to have the freedom to choose what level of quality digital audio, they prefer to listen to.

    9.) the ability to have multiple copies [at my descretion] of the same song (on my hard drive) with different bitrates and formats in my music library, is important for me because it has a direct impact on "how I enjoy MY music ', and in what form (audio quality), I choose to listen to my music.  {For example, when I exercise and listening to my camera, digital audio player (Zune), a song ('Maria Maria by Carlos Santana'), will usually be torn off at a lower rate due to the unit of capacity reduction of storage - compared to the storage capacity of notebook PCs/desktop/external hard drives PC.}  However, when I listen to my music through my home cinema or entertainment system (which contains a hard disk dedicated with a large storage capacity), I prefer to load the entertainment system with digital music files that have been ripped to WMA... with the bit being rate-setting is for the: settings "WMA Variable Bit Rate" or "WMA Lossless.

    10.) there you have it.  This is my first post in this forum.  I hope that [detailed] explanations, will be sufficient to encourage these "with knowledge & the hands on experience" using Windows Media Player 12 (as well as with WMP-10/WMP-11 respectively), by providing a [step] "How-to"... "solution to my situation.  It would be highly appreciated.  I'm looking forward-'the solution' - and relevant suggestions & and/or community feedback regarding my request for assistance.

    * Thank 'All' (that would) in advance... For your time & Assistance *.

    Certainly, you can, but I would say that they be in different folders, for your convenience as well as Windows.  You can create one for each debit/format, then you will know who is who.

    In Windows Media Player, on the toolbar, select Tools, Options, Rip, and then select the flow you want first, rip music, then change the folder (higher on the same tab) and rip again... and so on and so forth.

    When you are at home on your home theater, you can use the 320 bitrate folder, when you transfer to the Zune, you can use one of the lower bitrate files (although I personally tear it up to 320 and let the Zune reduce as he wants, even with the iPhone via iTunes, hard drive space is not really a problem here) my server has several hard drives, and I can always add more if and when space is low!

  • Too much process and use of memory Windows 8.1


    I am currently using Windows Enterprise 8.1.

    I'm not running the applications, games or software but I notice about 2.3 GB of RAM memory usage and 88 of running processes.

    Someone told me it is too and its Windows 8.1 it is only 40 of the running processes and about 1.5 GB of RAM.

    Now can you please check which runs under the process?





    When Windows is installed but nothing added is around 40 process but once you start adding things the number goes up.  ~ 80 process is not uncommon.

    Tell your friend that there is nothing wrong.  You use about 25% of ram so much you and it is simply not a problem.

    I have seen systems with 150 used process and 3 GB of ram and it is bad because it could cause a delay.

    In short if you do not have a problem, you like it, tell us your firend to explain here and I bet that he cannot or will not.

    Hi, I write output digital (4 outputs line, on request, 10 updates per second) in a loop using the DAQ assistant. When I use a NOR-9477 as the device output application use memory increases about 10 MB for 15 minutes and will eventually run out of memory.

    If I use a USB6009 as the output device, the memory usage is stable. Same code is used, the only difference is the physical channel.

  • Svchost.exe several process taking high CPU usage

    * Original title: svchost.exe bleeding memory of multiple processes

    I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Service Pack 1 on decent office equipment.  Intel i7 - 2600 k, 16 GB of memory Corsair, 2 TB HD.  Recently, I noticed that sometimes the Web pages would much to slow while my 5.0 GHz network turned to 15.0 Mbs.  Also online MechWarrior gave me games much more than before lag to the point where I wouldn't be able to play.  This began about five to seven days from 29/09/14 and was regularly do worse.

    So I took a look at my resource monitor and the Task Manager and discovered fifteen process svchost.exe running and a svchost.exe * 32 running.  They were dispersed users (System, Local Service, Network Service), and we were shooting at 150 000 + K.  Sometimes there would be two consuming the same amount of memory, but I have yet to see more on the list do so.

    I'm certainly not an expert, but I take care of my computer.  My network is password protected, I ran a complete virus scan of the system that was detected (and if it is dangerous, I'm not at all more risky than Facebook sites on my PC.  I am saying that it is highly unlikely that I have no virus.)  I also checked the forums for others who have had the same problem and there were few.

    The only change I made is my network hardware, upgrade my modem and router/switch.  My router is a dual band and my computer is the only one on the frequency 5.0 but check on my computers to families that run on the 2.4, they have what seems like unusually high memory usage svchost.exe as well.  I went back two restore points, but that made no difference.

    Syschk control function run as administrator has not resolved the issue as well.  So what else am I missing?
