I don't want Google Update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. I disabled the GoogleUpdate service but if I look at the processes running, it is always there. How can I truly disable it?

    I run msconfig, go to Services tab, check the Hide Microsoft services box and GoogleUpdate is disabled. If I run regedit, there is no GogleUpdate in localmachine or currentuser branches (software\...\run)

  • that's why I prefer the portable Chome with an updater which I can run when I want it. Check AutoRuns if you can find the Updater. Now disable it.

  • Of course, but I hate google and I don't believe in them.

    I installed google earth because of my job.

  • What I want to ask when I start the thread was: how can the googleupdate.exe start with windows if I quit it from all of the start places.

    I mean: it isn't at the Run branches in the registry, i isn't at the start menu, and it is disabled in the services.

  • Run AutoRuns [1] and check if it is started somewhere else.

  • Wow! A lot of stuff start with Windows... And there are a few "googles" starting. I thought all this stuff were included in the run branches at the registry, the start menu or the services listed on msconfig.

    Thanks.

  • AutoRuns is much more powerful compard to msconfig.exe.
