Why is Chrome suddenly using 98% of CPU?

https://ibb.co/DYYf1kZ

I have performed a Windows 10, clean install, Google Chrome clean install.
I have a 9 month old Lenovo c940 laptop i7 with 16g of RAM.
I have followed all the instructions i have read on this forum and others, but they all suggest I clean install and clear history, I use 1 extension, BitWarden
Where should I look next?

Thank You
Norm

Thanks for replying!

I have read that chrome normally opens many processes. The Image I posted is just the process tree expanded. For the record, I only have 2 tabs open. The sites are this forum and my school homepage.

Thanks for the help!

Thanks Again,

I used End Task to kill all the processes then I opened chrome again . it opened with 12 processes (occasionally would jump to 13 and then back to 10) I disabled my only extension (BitWarden) and and now it opens as 9 processes. If I turn the extension back on it jumps back up to 12/13

I'll keep an eye on it by leaving task manager open and see if I can find out what is creating all these extra processes

Just looked over and its up to 16 processes. and I haven't opened anything new :(

Thanks for the help.
