The auto update of chrome is an ongoing battle, one I must admit that I am willing to accept myself as it has not caused me any issues.

I also understand that others may not be in this situation, due to various reasons, often due to 3rd party add ons etc not being able to keep up with the accelerated update cycle of chrome and other browsers, there used to be an addon that controlled the updates for chrome and disabling this would give you full control.

That is now no longer available (or accessible) so to stop the auto update you will need to look to more basic controls, the latest I know is to disable the start of the update services from Google. hopefully this will still work ...

you have to be aware of course that some updates are not related to just cosmetic or functional changes, but they address security concerns, I would suggest that if you choose to prevent updates you also monitor closely the reasons for the update and update as often as your needs allow, and as soon as your reason for not updating "catches UP"

I use it for only a few safe sites where I work online, so I'm not overly concerned about security. I remembered the Goohell Updater in Services, but it was too late. Now I know how to go back if I want.

Thanks again.
