    Your info is incorrect. The option you suggest to uncheck is already uncheck and I do have the googlecrashhandler.exe in task manager.

    @daniel – you may need to restart your computer for the settings to come into effect.

    I’ve already uninstalled Google Chrome, but GoogleCrashHandler.exe AND GoogleUpdate.exe are still running in my processes. do you know how to remove them in my circumstance? thanks!

    Same as Jordan. I’ll speculate that Google “forgot” to include these in the uninstaller or they’re running spyware and hoping no one will notice. Either way, it’s evil.
