I have run into similar problems and it was malware twice. A trojan just 2-3 days ago.

The poster was chasing registry errors for 6 hours or so before I finally got them to run Malwarebytes.

So the next guy may be malware as the last was.

We now know yours isn't.

windows 7 64bit

Hello everyone, I use Windows7 64bit, 6Gb Ram, 2 Hard drivers etc.., and Nvidea Vid Card, I had the same problem as most of you, tried all methods posted on this and other sites, and the solution turned out, I had infected cookies, which were causing the problem, best solution, remove your c:\ driver, from computer, conect to a computer running Panda 2010 or 2011 antivirus, and scan it. Panda scans cookies and will find any that contain malware, by the way Malwarebytes did not detect these cookies, nor did MSE antivirus,.... only Panda 2011 did. either that or if you don't have a second computer, then boot up in safemode using F8 key, and go into your users settings and remove all cookies. this should solve the problem for those who "like me" tried, the copy past for windows explorer. exe into the windows\system32 folder, and opening commandprompt in administrator mode, and running "sfc /scannow". where these options did not work.
Good Luck,

Ok, seems to me the problem was indeed google updater. Since uninstalling no profile problems whatsoever. Thanks agaiin.

You should let Google know about this and they may provide an update for Google Updater.
