Windows 7: Dual SpeedFan +5 Readings

Now it is getting serious. I just ran a system restore, taking it back to yesterday, before this was installed, yet when I go to services, Google Updater is still there and won't let itself be disabled. I now consider it to be malware at the least, and spyware at the worst.

I finally got the service disabled. Somehow it had my firewall protecting it, and I had to suspend protection long enough to disable the service. The same was true with a number of files and folders in App Data. Hopefully, it will not find a way to resurrect itself again.

The voltage is not a run voltage, that is, it isn't sent to CPU or other chipsets to maintain operation. It is just there to keep the PC ready for the press of the power button, and possibly for USB port power as mentioned. There is likely a 5v voltage regulator specifically tasked to provide this 5v standby, and the voltage could likely range from approx. 3.9v to 7.5V. I wouldn't be concerned. A Guy
Thank you for clarifying this I wasn't too sure about the voltage threshold

This would really annoy me as well. Strange tho as It has never done this to me

Well I've never had this happen and I've been using AIDA64 since they kicked Everest to the curve. Guess it pays to pay attention to what's being installed by a program.

Anyway AIDA does most everything any other program out there does, it's accurate and it provides a ton of info about your system. Yeah it isn't free, but it's well worth it. My opinion.

And if FinalWire (AIDA64) did include Google, they aren't the first, last, and only software manufacture to include browser stuff with their installs - which is why you should always pay attention to what's being asked to install.

My two cents.

Don't know where you got your copy from because the latest version (1.70.1400) that I just installed (again), just to see, doesn't install anything but AIDA64

Just downloaded it from the AIDA64 site to doublecheck - Release Package | AIDA64 Extreme Edition 1.70.1400

Only thing installed is AIDA64. Where'd you get your file from?

No thanks, I'm not interested enough to mess with it. However, the link that I gave seems like an official link to me. I got it from here:

Release Package | AIDA64 Extreme Edition 1.70.1400

And I used the AIDA64.com mirror. It may be that this only effects the trial version...I don't know. I do know that I thought that it was odd that the .exe that I downloaded, went back online to download more during the installation. In fact the download progress bar appeared twice.

Yeah that was odd that it went back on the internet to download more files. And 1.70.1400 is official, which is what I used from the link below to test the issues you describe, but I didn't get them.

That wouldn't make any difference. Also the official supported version is 1.70.1400 which is what you linked to. The Beta version is 1.70.1431.

Anyway I don't know why or how you got Google Chrome when it shouldn't have been included with the program

Perhaps you should send an e-mail to FinalWire about it.
