Stop Google Update


Stop GoogleUpdate Spying and/or Other Unauthorized Activities.

If you are concerned about what GoogleUpdate may be sending periodically to Google's servers, would like to save Internet bandwidth and CPU resources, or simply annoyed by the constant reminders from your firewall, our UpdaterDeNagger III can help you save your sanity by turning this feature off.

Simply download and install UpdaterDeNagger III and your GoogleUpdate won't keep trying to install software without your control. The time and annoyance you'll save by using this easy to use and well tested product is well worth the tiny price!

What is GoogleUpdate and what does UpdaterDeNagger III do?

If you use Google's Chrome, you most likely noticed how fast and light it is. You might have also noticed that a new process, "GoogleUpdate.exe", runs in the background. You can check this using Task Manager. This program is formally used by Google Chrome to check for new updates: if it finds an available update, it downloads and installs it, automatically, without even prompting you!

Aside from the fact that you don't really know what GoogleUpdate may be sending to Google's servers when it contacts them periodically, you may want maximize the efficiency of your system by reducing Internet bandwidth and CPU use. You might also be annoyed by the constant reminders from your firewall, if you use a quality firewall like Sygate's and configured it properly.

Unfortunately, even if you "End Task" this process (using Task Manager), it returns automatically after a few minutes or when you launch Chrome next time. This behavior is typical to spyware, a virus and other types of malware and it is very annoying.

If you would like a simple solution to stop GoogleUpdate in a safe and reliable way, than Software Candy’s UpdaterDeNagger III is the fix for you. Once this user friendly download is installed on your Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 computer you will be able to update Google Chrome only when you decide to do so. Your Chrome browser will keep working like normal but you will be in charge of deciding when to check for updates.

As with all Software Candy products, UpdaterDeNagger III is completely free of any viruses or spyware (digitally signed for authenticity and integrity) and is well tested for its advertised features. If ever needed, you can also uninstall it completely with a single click, performing a total cleanup after itself.

The beauty of this wizard is that you don't have to do dangerous registry editing by hand or remember what you did if you ever want to revert back. Once you download this app (keep it in easy to find folder!), you double-click it, click the Next button on the installation wizard and Voila! Your GoogleUpdate won't keep trying to install software without your control.

Note: It is recommended to check from time to time whether critical security updates were released. Do it manually and decide for yourself whether available updates fit your system.

The Google Chrome browser automatically updates itself, using a background process that inconspicuously accesses the Internet and downloads available updates. This background process is very tenacious because Google Chrome installs it in multiple places, including the registry and the Windows Task Scheduler. Fortunately, Google Chrome Update has not discovered the Startup folder yet. So, even if you are willing to take the risk of editing the registry by hand and invest the time to do so, you may be surprised to find out that  GoogleUpdate.exe is still running numerous times daily.

Recently, some Google Chrome users reported about Chrome displaying a blank page or crashing on Windows 7, preventing them from accessing the Internet via Chrome. It is unclear yet whether these incidents are due to a faulty automatic Google Update or due to some malware that is specifically targeting Chrome. Stay tuned for updates on this matter.

  • Q1. Will I have to run this program periodically to quiet down Google Update?
  • A1. Normally this is not necessary. However, it is possible that if you manually updated Google Chrome, it re-installed Google Update again. In such case, simply re-install UpdaterDeNagger III (keep your download in an accessible folder).
