I installed Google Chrome for flash capability. When I try to close it, it appears to close correctly, but two of the three processes in System Monitor remain open. This should not happen. And if Chrome is sending information back to Google while the browser is closed, I should know about it.

Could you add a list of plugins/extensions you have installed? –  Braiam Feb 21 at 0:57

You have to set in the settings

'Settings' > 'Advanced' > Under 'System' untick "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed"

I think there is something else you may have to disable, search for "Background" in settings to see if there is anything.
