ran your tool also re permissions. Still the Pete folder shows lock but nothing under that is locked.
Did full uninstall and reinstall with stand alone version.
Went to Pete/Appdata/Local/google/Chrome and now the olny folder in there is a user data folder nothing else. no update exe or folder anywhere

i changed to ssd a month or so ago and I think this started after that. Maybe a profile issue?

Google Update process being 32bit isn't a problem. I'm beginning to suspect security software might be to blame as in Firewall/ Antivirus or Antispwyare with HIPS/ or HOSTS file.

googleupdate.exe is running so it looks like something blocks connection to the update server.

Busy at the moment though.

Okay I have to give up on this one. I installed Chrome 64bit (monitored install) then tried to reproduce the error. Nothing I tried could reproduce it.
