Norton keeps detecting high CPU usage by Google Chrome and high memory handles usage by Google Chrome. Running Windows 10 home, update version 1703 edition 64bit . Laptop is running slower then normal.All drivers are up to date. How can I fix this ?

Re: High CPU usage

It is normal for browsers to occasionally need more system resources, depending on such things as how many tabs are open and how much active content is running on open pages.  Norton is simply letting you know when this happens.  This isn't anything that needs fixing in most cases.

If your machine is slowing to a crawl, open up task manager to find out what program is causing the problem.  If the program isn't doing anything demanding at the time that would explain the drain on resources, there may be an issue with the involved program, that would warrant troubleshooting the program itself.

Re: High CPU usage

I downloaded the chrome- cleanup -tool but in order for the cleanup they want you to reset the  google settings and I rather not have to do that.
