Functions as the users above have described it. Re-enables itself even though you disable it from starting up, persistent program.

Used to keep google chrome automatically up-to-date. It is also installed with many of google's other apps like google earth, picasa etc to keep them up to date also. This process has minimal impact on resources and is useful to auto update your google apps, I would leave it enabled.  More information

You might as well leave it be,Like Daniel said, It Re-enables itself anyway! Plus it certainly won't hurt anything.

Persistant program that installs with ANY google software. Chrome, Earth, Toolbar, Etc. If you've had a google product on your computer than this program was installed along with it. You can disable it 100x over, but it will just keep coming back. Its not really a nuisance, but if you're running a computer that cant spare the 5-6,000 kbytes it needs to run, then use revo uninstaller, or some other software removal tool.

You don't need GoogleUpdate.exe. Not even to keep Chrome up to date. Chrome updates itself everytime you start Chrome. And if you really want to make sure, click the "Tools" icon, then About Chrome". In the bottom left you should see a green square with a tick to indicate your Chrome version is up to date. If it isn't, you should see the "Chrome is being updated" message where the tick should have been. So untick GoogleUpdate.exe in msconfig, or Autoruns or Windows Defender, or whatever program you use to edit your startup programs.

This is evil software, its intent is benign but its methods and access are insidious. It runs whenever it wants and looks at every site you visit, every keystroke you enter and reports to google whatever they want to look at of your activities. Currently, this is reported to be just your general browsing habits for targeted advertising, but could easily include your bank and credit card accounts and passwords...oops, accidently uploaded, unencrypted all over the internet. There is no current way to remove this if you use the google chrome browser. It will reinstall itself and restart itself if you attempt to kill it from the task manager. This is evil software.
