Everything was going well until one of the two users installed Grammarly Extension for Word 2010.  THEN - MalwareBytes Anti-Exploit reported a change for the worse in Word, computer got very slow.  Ran Malwarebytes and found PUP and other problems that might not have been related to Grammarly.

Now, being suspicious of everything, they notice that the task manager shows  that there are 8+  processes running for Chrome 32.  Facebook and Gmail are  open.

We removed all the unnecessary Chrome extensions we could find.  Grammarly was uninstalled using the Windows 7 control panel

Are these processes to be expected?  Anything else we should run besides MalWareBytes?
