Google Update Uninstaller helps solve the problem of Google Chrome automatically updating without the user's input.Google Chrome is a great product in many ways. However, like many other Google products, it is using a very rogue mechanism for keeping itself up to date. Unlike other browsers, such as Safari and Firefox, it doesn't prompt you for updates. Instead it is running a sneaky background tool called Google Update. What makes matters worse is that Google Update is really hard to get rid off.Basically, Google Update is randomly trying to update itself without your consent. This is annoying to say the least.

When running the installer, I received a notice stating: "The package was signed with a certificate that has expired. If you acquired this package recently, it may not be authentic." Due to this, I cancelled the installer as it expired in 2011. I found that strange since it was just released within the last few days. I downloaded directly from MU.

Also, like Sanchai, I'm curious if you can still manually update with this installed. Dougster said to keep your eye on MU but did not specify if he tried to manually update.

Can you still manually update Google Chrome by clicking About Google Chrome after uninstall Google Updater using this software?

Sanchai,I guess you could your eye on Chrome updates in MacUpdate and install them from the fresh download. I just wanted to get rid of Google from my Mac,including any updaters. I used Google Update Uninstaller along with some terminal commands,which can be found on the internet.

'keep your eye on' is what I intended to type!

Thanks for this. Seems to work quickly and neatly to get rid of the updater (which installed itself here apparently with Google Earth since I don't use Chrome) using 10.6.8. Updater used to make constant attempts to contact server, but was blocked using Little Snitch. No sign of the updater in Activity Monitor -- now if only it stays gone!

Can you use Check for Zupdate from menu of Google Earth to manually check for update after remove Google Updater using this software?

I'm using an old version of Google Earth (7.0.3.8542) which works for me and I don't see "check for update" in the menus or prefs. I would do the same thing as Dougster above, and manually find and install an update if I need one. And no sign of Google updater after a day without it (shutdown last night, and a restart today after using Toast to create some disc images).
