Specs: windows 8, 2.793 GHz / 4 gig
I just noticed in my taskbar processes a new processes. Its GoogleUpdateCore.exe . My windows 8 never warned me that this was going to secretly install itself. I do not like when programs secretly install themselves.
1 - how do I get rid of it if all the anti-virus can not find it ? they say this is not a virus

2 - would WinPatrol have noticed this secret Installation ? should I get winpatrol ?
3 - there is a sinilar program to WinPatrol - its called Autoruns , which out of these 2 is better ?
which one of these 2 uses more cpu resource ?

1. GoogleUpdateCore.exe is part of Google Chrome. It's not a virus nor is it a secret. Do you use the Chrome browser?

2. See 2nd sentence above. Also, Winpatrol is not highly rated. I wouldn't use it & I certainly wouldn't pay for it. There are too many decent freebies available out there. Hopefully you have a good AV program?

3. They're not that similar. WinPatrol automatically monitors & watches for changes caused by malware; Autoruns is a tool for showing what apps load at startup plus it provides detailed info about each startup app (& more). You can then decide what you want to disable.

Try doing a Google search on both programs. There's tons of info available about each one.
