Google Chrome Helper (Not Responding) on OSX Yosemite

Unsure which version of Chrome you are using? Type chrome://version into your omnibox (where the URL is) and your Chrome version number will be listed on the first line.  
                -- Google Chrome Version 38.0.2125.104 on OSX 10.10 (Yosemite) 

Have you checked our known issues page? If your issue is not there, please provide a detailed description here: 
                -- Searched but did not find an exact match
                -- Google Chrome Helper (Not Responding) appears as frequently as a red line in Activity Manager
                -- Often multiple occurrences at the same time 
                -- Sometimes accompanied by "Aw, Snap"

I captured two Sample reports frorn Activity Manager: see files attached.

This is a nuisance level problem at the moment I would say.

I can get some more samples if you need them.

Thanks,

The problem is worse than I thought. Screen shots attached (4) show each task is taking a lot of CPU time, especially in the second set at 04:31 today.

I ran two extra samples on the first set. PIDs 2164 and 2200 taking over 42 minutes and 2 hours CPU time respectively. 

Two more files attached for these, each including the list of open ports and files.

Looking into what could be causing this here. Not sure what the data will tell me at this stage.

Any suggestions what to look for?

Just upgraded to Yosemite and having similar activity.

I think it may have to do with not-yet-updated extensions. I'm currently disabling them one by one to see if it helps.
