Chrome seems to be continually receiving data even though I'm not downloading anything. This is making a noticeable impact on my browsing speed.
The first screenshot shows Chrome receiving data even though I'm not downloading anything (nor buffering a YouTube video etc.)
Even after I completely close Google Chrome, the "chrome.exe" remains in the Resource Monitor list and the "Received bytes" column continually increases in the screenshot below. However, "chrome.exe" does not show up in the Processes tab of Task Manager.
This only occurs sometimes, but I don't know why. I have tried running a malware/virus scans to ensure that there is nothing malicious behind this, but those scans have shown nothing.
Any ideas on what's causing this?
