Windows 7: Unknown Google Chrome Service on Startup

Unknown Google Chrome Service on Startup

I have a strange Startup entry that CCleaner picks up that I can find no information about.

I wondered if anyone could shed any light on it:

HKCU:Run 4CC718B76FDA31A781EEE64B20CC9F318F05D00D._service_run
Google Inc.
"C:\Users\Me\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --type=service

Do I need this service and is it legit...

Thanks in advance (and yes I have Googled it and no info can be found regarding this Chrome service)

Do you have Google cloud Print enabled under chrome settings ??? it looks like you have it enabled..

Disable it if you dont want it to be re enabled in the startup again and again.

[edit] Yeah thanks!! Didn't see your post before quick replying...

I think its this actually now I've looked a bit further into it.

The cloud print service sets up a persistent service process for handling print jobs.
