I'm not on Windows at the moment, but I recall the google updater being in the top level folder of scheduled tasks, not sorted into one of the lower folders. Or the easier way to access tasks is via the utility CCleaner, at Tools / Startup
I saw the OK Google stuff a few weeks/months ago and you're right, it appeared out of nowhere but tbh I don't really like using voice search so I haven't ever used it on my laptop and only once used it on my phone!

I had a look and couldn't find the google updater - and I don't really want to install any more software, I've already installed two new browsers (Pale Moon & Slim Jet) as alt's to solve this Chrome thing! And anyway I can't do anything about it now as Chrome auto updated itself (despite me instructing it not to!) to v45.0.x.

Is there any way of rolling back to an earlier version of Chrome? Is there anywhere I can download an older version from? Or am I totally stuffed? (I am using SJ but seeing if I can recover my Chrome.)

Not that I'm aware. But I don't follow chrome very closely.
