I have been getting a Google Chrome "crashed" or "Aw Shucks" message but I do not have Chrome installed. When I CTRL-ALT-DEL and bring up my Windows Task Manager I see multiple of processes with variable CPU and Memory (Private Working Set) readings, example shown below.

vzssqsmwxk.exe *32 <username> 01 114,560 K Google Chrome

I did a complete scan with Norton Antivirus and It didn't trigger a virus/malware response. I checked with the Google Chrome support site, but they only reference issues with installing Chrome and I don't want to install Chrome and it has never been installed on this system.

This started today and to be sure I de-installed the only software that I have installed on this system in the last week (CoffeeCup HTML Writer) and rebooted the system, but that did not resolve the issue.

My OS is Windows 7 Professional SP1.
