    What's the standard amount of processes running when idle? i seem to hit over 200-250 processes with just google chrome open.

    haha! well that depends on how many tabs u got open? iirc chrome outsources each tab into a separate process so as not to crash the entire program when one tab misbehaves.

    Ensure that RUn in background in Chrome's advanced settings is disabled or unchecked to gain several GB of RAM and heavy cut down in existing process count.

    Should I take a look via Anydesk if your AV doesn't flag me as a Malware or PUP?

    i'm really trying to figure out if these excessive processes are causing hitching/stutter in games.

    Sometimes they cause hitches. But, main cause is pile up of unused standby memory list bug in Windows 10. Try ISLC from wagnard.

    After reboot, close autostarting NordVPN and Spotify, and waiting 10 minutes just to make some processes settle after boot I get this.

    When opening Opera with 25 tabs it bumps up to 190 processes, so one per tab.
