This might help. Take a look.

Start Orb and type msconfig.
Look in Start Up for the services and then while there go to Services. Put a check mark in the box (Lower left corner) Hide all Microsoft's Services and see if you can find them there.

Also look at the scheduled task by going to Start menu -> All Programs -> Accesories -> System Tools -> Task Scheduler.

On the task scheduler navigation pane, select "Task Scheduler Library." Delete any Google Update stuff if there is one on the list.

Yeah you can either disable or delete them. I'd try disabling them and see if they still load when Windows boots.
