I am using Google Chrome. I re-installed it today as it was crashing when I start it. I guess may be that this was due to any of my Extensions or Google Update. I disabled my extensions but it was still crashing. Now I installed an old version of chrome from http://www.oldapps.com/google_chrome.php. However, Chrome automaticallyuppdates itself (although Windows asks me before installing and I don't grant it permissions, its still annoying to get Google update asking me permission after a couple of minutes.
I saw the question at Disable auto-update of Google Chrome however, it doesn't seem to hlp me. i disabled the service and I stopped it as well, but the problem still persists. I also tried to look into the registry according to the following link: http://www.sitepoint.com/how-to-disable-google-chrome-updates/ but the "Policies" section of my registry doesn't contain any folder called "Google". I use Windows 7 - 64 bit Home Premium Service pack 1.
Could anybody help? Thanks a ton!
