Probably because googleupdate.exe causes so much discussion about how to get rid of it. It's installed when you put on Chrome. Not sure if there's an option to NOT install it when you install Chrome.

I'm sure if you search the forums here you can find out how to get rid of it. If you want Chrome and want to get rid of googleupdate you can always disable your antivirus while installing. I'm sure others will come along with even better advice.

Good luck,
Bill

algkais,

If you are worried about the Google learning to much about you try SRWare Iron. An opened sourced browser based on the same Chromium code as Google's Chrome. It has no reporting features like Chrome giving some company information about what you are doing on line at all times. I play around with it a little every day, I have no plug-ins installed but I understand that most that are made for Chrome install and run. I prefer Opera myself.

GoogleUpdate.exe is not trojan. Your antivirus is making a false detection.

Maybe so, but a company like Kaspersky are quite clued up. I sent Kaspersky a mail about this, the 1st thing they said was do not turn off the anti virus. :flowers:
Anyway thanks for the replies, i've given up with chrome & downloaded safari, which seems to have solved my slow down problems :thumbsup:

Should you still want to use Chrome, you can do this to remove google update after installing Chrome.
