Is there a folder named "Update" with a google update.exe file in there?

Try this:

open a command prompt, and type in the following (after replacing <your username> with your username):

cd "C:\Documents and Settings\your username\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Update\"

then type:

GoogleUpdate.exe /RegServer

no update exe and I have tried that before with no success.
So why doesn't the update exe install...maybe that's the question.
Maybe do full install once more after permissions fix and reboot

Yes. If there's no update process it can't update. That's why I suggested the offline installer as it would hopefully overwrite that folder and install the correct files.

Anyway that's me finished for today. If anyone else has ideas please post. Will check back tomorrow.

If you don't have any luck the utility I prefer for resetting permissions to default is a script built into UVK.

You might look into that. The option is in the system repair section.

Just back for one more quick post:

C:\Users\your username\Local Settings\Application Data\ - you are not supposed to get access to that. It should be locked.

C:\Users\your username\AppData\ - this should not be locked.

More info on paths here:
