  1. I've heard alot about how Google Chrome updating its self, but for what ever reason, mine never has. Is there a setting I don't know about or what? I don't use it all the time.TIA

    Looking at this
    I've never seen the horizontal bars any color.

    Look at services and verify Google Update is autostart

    Can you tell me how to get there
    Ok, I found out how to get there, but there is no X or way to close it that I can see of.:confused:
    Ok, I did as you suggested & saw nothing about Google Chrome & also found no way to exit that so I was forced to shut down. So I'm guessing I'll learn to live with it too.:)

    You can disable the services.msc for Googleupdate. Does not need to be running as service. Just allow it to update through your firewall.

    Google Update Service (gupdate) - disable
    Google Update Service (gupdatem) - disable

    There is a start-up one the runs also in the background. I have that disabled also..
    GoogelUpdateTaskMachineCore - removed or disabled (optional but why have it running always)
