I’ve had this exe running in my processes for the past couple of days. I never registered or downloaded anything from google. I don’t use their browser/googleEarth/mail apps.

It’s really wierd and unnerving when companies install stuff on your computer behind your back. Anyone else got this without premission?

That’s the thing. I never installed any google apps, not even a toolbar.

@tpncorp: I may sound paranoid :), but I don’t trust google.

I followed your link and removed it. Thanks!
