Have you tried using System Restore to roll back Windows to a point in time when everything when your computer was functioning correctly? It allows you to undo system changes without affecting your personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos.

Can you submit a copy of the C:\Google\googleupdate.a3x file to http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/submit-malware.php?channel=3

This file does not look right to me. You should not have autoit files starting on bootup

I tried already system restore but useless as the problem still exists.

Then restore an earlier system image or backup.

 

No suitable restore point, backup, or image available? Kick yourself -- you missed the easy solution, and you're left with digging through Windows' many settings.

As already stated, you should not have autoit programs starting automatically when windows starts. As far as I know, Google does not use them either.

I suggest you follow these steps:
