Definitely sounds like malware to me, especially if Chrome is opening instances all on its own/even when closed. I have seen malware behave in this manner many times.

No, it's not addware. There is a setting in chrome that allows those popups about tech news, and my son knows which one it is, but I personally haven't been able to find it in my copy of chrome, so I need to ask him again which setting it is to turn it off. The news titles pop up in the system notifications area on the pc. The setting in chrome turns those pop ups off, so they won't do that anymore. I've looked through my settings, and couldn't find which setting was causing it, but I'll ask him again and repost here after I get it turned off.
Those don't bother me as much as the flippin' login to my apple drive that keeps popping up every half hour or so, which seems also to be triggered by my first opening of chrome after a reboot. I'd really like to turn those off. I'll log in to the silly thing when I want to use it, not until then, so stop asking me already.
