There are two questions:

1. Why does that "service" keep coming back even if I explicitly delete it? 
Could this be KDE's flag of Chromium as default-browser?

2. Why the 100% CPU and memory. Since problems with KDE 4.7.4 with Nvidia have 
been cited, I can boot up to nouveau and see if such problems reoccur.
