Restart google chrome to finish updating
I have set no rules for internet access but if somehow it does get to execute I will get a popup asking if I want to grant it internet access.Currently trying to bring myself to move away from chrome and as many google products as possible after realising the effort they have gone to, to thwart the tiny minority of people who actually regedited the old auto update and their desire to have more control over your machines than you do.Easy solution : 1- Go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\ and find the folder "update". I blocked tools.on localhost temporarily so that I could install previous version and prevent updating to the version that is breaking the label printing.
hl=en I followed scrupulously the instructions of that page, the keys in the registry are all correct, but still going to the "About Google Chrome" when the program is opened, I can see the wheel going around and a few seconds later the update is forced and done.
Have spent a long time trying to disable updates (literally hours, reading forums and testing various (some exotic) solutions), and this was driving me crazy.
But there what seems an infallible solution (see further down).
Since you want to disable auto update, you may be installing chrome using the offline installer.
If not, then I recommend that you use that; it makes more sense for To get rid of Chrome 44 and go back to 43 I downloaded a stand-alone version of chrome 43 which is an file and I just double clicked on it and it was installed on my computer WITHOUT updating to Chrome 44, to find the link to Chrome 43 have a look to the bottom of this page Google Chrome 64-bit Offline Installer| 45.7 MB or go to enter link description here.
