Options section - Background apps - Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed

Well, I'm looking at your avatar, so my answer is "uninstall Chrome." :P ;D

What extensions do you have installed that would cause that to appear there in the first place?

i don't have any extensions on this browser and i also tried disabling all the plugins by going to chrome://plugins/ and uncheck the following:

Chromoting Viewer
Chrome PDF Viewer
Java(TM)
Native Client

for posterity.

1) Browse to: chrome://flags/
2) Find the item named "Enable Rich Notifications Windows, Chrome OS". Change it to "Disabled" and then use the Relaunch button to restart chrome.
