    Odd, but nonetheless, glad you got it sorted. Be sure to mark the thread as solved if your not having any more problems.

    Having a lot of chrome.exe open is not a virus.

    In Fact chrome does that by default and also you will have a chrome.exe per addon you have enabled as well so disable all your addons and u will see quite a few less chrome.exe in task manager.

    It also creates a new process chrome.exe per tab that you have open as well.

    Guys, i gotta reply, so its like so: Extensions. Every extension runs in an own process, if you go ahead and uninstall all extensions you have in chrome, and disable flash/shockwave youll see that you only have 2-3 processes left that are nessesary
