Google introduces updateware

I don't understand google's maniacal need to update. Yes, I understand that quick updates are a good but, the last time I searched for googleupd* in my hard drive look at how many places it showed up
%PROGRAM_FILES%\Google\Common\Google Updater\GoogeUpdaterService.exe
And google is still not satisfied :O..there are 2 scheduled tasks as well
GoogleUpdateTaskMachine - to run at startup
GoogleUpdateTaskUserS-X-X-XX-XXXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXX-XXXX - to run when idle
If you thought google was satisfied with that you're wrong they have the one last trick up in the registry
After software, adware, nagware, annoyware, bloatware google has introduced updateware :/ ps. follow this excellent link on instruction to get rid of it all
