Does anyone have info about Chrome's software_reporter_tool.exe?
I keep hearing bad things like it's constantly scanning your computer software and reporting to Google. Also why older computers can't run Chrome without the CPU being pinned at 100% severely hampering performance.
I found info about disabling it here: ghacks.net/2018/01/20/how-to-block-the-chrome-software-reporter-tool-software_reporter_tool-exe
But I'm wondering if this is really just a case of the public being alarmist about it.
