Stop Chrome running tasks even after it has shut down

Chrome has an extremely annoying feature that literally freezes the computer upon start up. It has a number of tasks that it keeps performing on its own, without permission, even AFTER it has been shut down.


Go to settings >advanced settings (at the bottom)
Uncheck “Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed”

Doing this has woken up my computer and made it super-fast once again.
