I've done the instructions that I found online and Chrome is still automatically updating itself.

I've downloaded and installed the ADM template so I can use Local Policy to disable updates. I've set it to manual updates only. I've also added keys to the registry at HKLM/SOFTWARE/Policies/Google/Update

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


Google Update Services are both disabled. (gupdate and gupdatem)

@VlastimilOvčáčík No, this is not a duplicate. If you look at the accepted solution for that question, and compare with my question, you'll notice that I tried exactly as was suggested to no avail. – agent154 Dec 3 '15 at 13:48

delete the next folder: c:\program files(x86)\google\update\
