I've looked around online and can't figure out what these files are for. They are huge and constantly growing and seem to log everything I do. I think it may be something by Lenovo but I'm not sure. I don't have a big hard drive on this old laptop and would love to free up some space if I could delete these. 

 

I have a Lenovo x61s laptop running Windows XP professional.

 

Looking forward to finding an explanation for these mysterious files.

 

For antivirus I use Symantic AntiVirus Corporate Edition. I don't have any spyware or malware protection software currently installed.

 

Thanks for any help you can offer!

That is a Google updater.  You can read about it here at BleepingComputer.

 

Click on Start and then type msconfig in the Run box to access System Configuration.  

 

Under System Configuration you will see a tab for Services, click on this.

 

To shorten the list of service you can hide the Microsoft Services by placing a check mark in the box in the lower left corner for Hide all Microsoft services.

 

The service you are looking for is gupdate.  When you find it remove the check mark in its box, click on Apply, the click on OK.

 

* Remember to replace the check mark you removed for Hide all Microsoft services.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks, I'll do that. 

 

Is it okay to delete those files too, to free up space on my hard drive?

It's not using a lot of resources, I would just let it do its job.  Google Chrome is like Windows in that they are always making updates to improve its performance and security issues.
