Windows 7: How get rid of the Google Updater?

13 Jul 2011   #11

Windows 7 32 bit
 
 

I was getting google updater thing on my system when I was using chrome browser. Instead of using a "track" such as "development" or whatever, I switched to download Chromium Win32 Snapshot .zip files. Portable. No mumbo jumbo. I save my Chromium folder from User\AppData\Local so if I get a bug I just put the Chromium build I was using before back, and copy my settings folder back. Bug gone.

No need to update and I'm using some of the latest code available. I look in the change log to make sure there's not a passle of issues before downloading a particular build.

You can download snapshot builds for Windows here:
http://build.chromium.org/f/chromium/snapshots/Win/


edit: btw every chrome extension I've tried works with chromium. It's not like Iron where some stuff won't install.

This is a boring issue with google! I tried to remove it by many ways but it returns back after reboot or launch any google program.
Hopefully the asker tell us which solution, if any, has solved this problem as I also wish to get ride of it.

Thanks

Yes, I did but I had GoogleUpdate active after reboot.
I have already entirely deleted the GoogleUpdate folder in AppData and Program Files folders and it seems GoogleUpdater has disappeared!

Good to hear sevener! :)
Google software, in my opinion, is very tenacious and hard to get rid of.
