I haven't tried the Dev version but the release and beta versions are plagued with this. This never happened in 9.x and doesn't happen with Iron (based off of 10.x).

I open Chrome, doesn't matter how many tabs I have open, I then close it and one (1) instance of chrome.exe *32 stays active afterwards. Why?

HKCU:Run CC40F7114D0CB8BE8745548C2235C2FD3A68136B._service_run "C:\Users\X\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --type=service

That is what is being listed in the startup. If I delete it, it returns when I reboot. If I disable it, it re-enables itself when I reboot. Don't know what they did but I really don't like it running as a "service". I asked on the Google Chrome forums about 1-2 weeks ago with no answer at all so I'm pretty much sure everyone there is clueless or the community sucks.

Anyways, what do?

Found out the solution, Google Cloud Print was enabled which makes Chrome behave this way. Turning it off solved this problem.
