When I start my computer, Google chrome have a high cpu usage (around 60%), but it does nothing when I press end task on the task manager, chrome still work fine, when i press go to file location, it brings me to chrome.exe.

This is on Windows 10.

Any help?

When Chrome is opened, press Shift + ESC keys to open Chrome task manager (Not Windows Task Manager) to see what processes/tabs chrome is busy with.

You can try:
  • Doing a malware scan
  • Running Chrome in disabled extensions mode
  • Removing suspicious Chrome apps or extensions
  • Running Chrome Clean-up tool

It says the gpu process is taking my cpu, but it's back and forth, sometimes the browser is taking the cpu also (around 5% -6%). And it still taking 80% of my cpu

Try disabling "hardware acceleration" on the settings and see if it has any impacts, in which case maybe you should update the graphics driver.
