  • You can install the local version of Chrome, which stores the Chrome files in User Data directory.  

    This way the update would happen without Administrator right.

  • Hi,

    Disable UAC and try it again.

    Regarding with the question of googleupdate.adm, I suggest you ask in Google forum for a better assit.
