I have several chrome windows open at a time and all the google chrome helper processes are using too much memory. How can I disable these from starting? All the instructions I've found seem to be for older versions of chrome.

I'm on Version 74.0.3729.169 (Official Build) (64-bit) which I think is the latest!

I'm still seeing the issue.

Ok. What other browser can I use on my Mac?/ I'm new to this stuff.

I'm experiencing the same thing.  I run version 75.0.3770.100 (Official Build) (64-bit)  and no videos on youtube are discussing how to disable google chrome helper for a mac using this version.

Yep, I'm having the same issue. The 'Google Chrome Helper' is hogging all the CPU processing power and the fan in my recent model Macbook Pro is spinning like crazy. I can't find any information on how to disable the helper on the latest version of Chrome. I guess I'll go back to Firefox until it gets sorted but that is annoying as all my bookmarks and logins are stored in chrome now.

Experiencing the same issue. Want to disable chrome helper as its eating memory on Mac Mini. Online previous posts do refer disabling it via Preferences->Security->Content->Plugins->Choose Click to Play for all plugins. But unable to location this setting in Version 75. 
Does anyone know where i can locate this setting on Ver 75?

Could someone from Google please post directions on how to turn this off!  As the other posters have mentioned, the directions that others have posted on the web don't seem relevant to Google Chrome 75.  My Google Chrome Helper is consuming nearly 100% of my CPU.

Same issue here.  It's gotten so bad I have to type super slow so GMail can keep up.  Ridiculous.
