Here is the sequence of events: Run (latest version) of Google Chrome. Exit the program. Run Ccleaner. A message pops up saying that Google Chrome needs to be closed. Open a copy of Task Manager. This shows two tasks still running: chrome.exe and google chrome portable.

Why would these tasks still be running after Chrome is shut down?
