Getting rid of GoogleUpdater

Google Updater is installed when you install any Google product. It then sits in the background and checks for updates. I don’t want it to on my server. I wanted a browser that wasn’t IE 6.0 and I didn’t want the bloat ware of IE 8.0. So I installed Google Chrome as a light weight browser, that would not constantly require Microsoft Updates.

So how do you get rid of the Google Updater?

1) Go to Scheduled Tasks.

  • Either by Control Panel –> Scheduled Tasks
  • Explorer –> Windows –> Tasks

2) You will see the Google Updater sat there. It will start a process when the processor is Idle for 10 mins. Just delete this task and Google wont update anymore.
