Permanently remove updater from Google Earth 5
Authored by: momerath on Apr 24, '09 05:04:59AM

I also am strongly averse to an invisible, uncontrollable updater. However, it should be noted that the Google EULA you agree to when you install the package says that you must allow the updater service and are not allowed to try to modify it or prevent it from running if you use other Google software. I doubt they have the capacity to enforce this provision, but if you're concerned about these sort of "contracts," it's important to know what you may be violating.

I don't give a damn if this violates the EULA. Let them sue me. Maybe Google has forgotten what platform they're developing for. Crapware like this belongs on Windows. How dare you sully my platform by bringing this garbage to it. With regards to Little Snitch, I found that it causes more problems than it solves. It is basically impossible to remove from the system without reinstalling the OS.

Well EULAs usually contain everything but the kitchen sink these days. But realistically, why does Google implant updaters like this into their software? Just because they can?
