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!

sending to Google's servers when it contacts them periodically, you may

bandwidth and CPU use. You might also be annoyed by the constant
reminders from your firewall, if you use a quality firewall like Sygate

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
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.
