Can anyone tell me if crashpad_handler.exe is a malicious program? It shows up in my Windows 10 running processes.  Thank you for any help you can give me.

Try this - many hits, this is the first

Of course there is also this - - this reports it as part of Google Earth VR.  But that doesn't mean this is a legit file and not one named to confuse.  But if so it should be digitally signed by google.
