  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 https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95414?hl=en
    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)
