Google Update -- The Process that JUST WON'T DIE

After downloading Google Chrome and trying it for a while... it was back to Firefox for BOAS. But as I uninstalled the beta browser; there was still the menacing process googleupdate.exe always in my task manager. To get rid of it fully I actually had to setup a firewall block on Google Installer and manually `rm -rf` (yes I have that in Windoze...) the entire Google directory from "C:\...\Local Settings\Application Data"--a directory that is hidden but exists! Do yourself a favor, if you plan to dl Google Chrome, please find the offline installer for Google software.
