That's pretty cool. I would use it but I've already disabled the updater in the registry. And if that doesn't keep it down (has so far tho) I'll delete the exe itself.

Whats so bad about the Google Updater anyway? Resource hungry? Waste of bandwidth? Trojan?

What's bad about it is that it's a damn bastard to shut down and keep it shut down.

Why not just remove all security permissions to that file? Just untick "Simple File Sharing" and remove all ownership of that exe. Then it won't have permission to execute that file no matter what account you logged in as ;)
