 HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{A92DAB39-4E2C-4304-9AB6-BC44E68B55E2}

 

I have Searched the net only to find it mixed in with many others with no information directly related.

Is there any information in that registry entry? Anything can help further identify this ID.

Appears to be associated with Google Update Helper, see Program Details at http://softuninstall.com/remove-google-update-helper.html .

Like Louis said, this is related to the Google Update Helper. The Registry key you mention here is the key that holds the uninstall information for that program. In order to uninstall it, you can launch the run command (Win Key + R) and enter the command below:

MsiExec.exe /X {A92DAB39-4E2C-4304-9AB6-BC44E68B55E2}

And it'll uninstall it.

You mean, AdwCleaner? Also, that program wasn't malicious and used by Google Chrome if you have it installed (or any other Google programs). I guess it'll now ask you to check manually for updates for these programs.
