I get a message that says GoogleUpdate.exe could not be recognized and it is about to access the Service Control Manager. I could not access the Service Control Manager. What should I do?

The Service Control Manager (services.exe) is responsible for starting, stopping and interacting with Windows service processes. You can try to get to your services by clicking on Start, Run and typing services.msc in the box and clicking Ok. Then look for the Google Updater and see if it is there and if it’s set to automatic to start with your computer. There may be a problem with the service and you can disable it to prevent getting the error message.

The Google Updater checks for updates for various Google programs and is not essential for the operation of your computer. Reinstalling a program such as Google Earth or the Google Toolbar may reinstall the updater as well and fix the problem.

You can also use the Windows System Configuration Utility (MSconfig) to disable the Google Updater as another option. It may be under the Startup or Services tab.
