Raam,

I have not discovered how to uninstall this shit.

BUT …

I have discovered an easy way to STOP THE POPUPS and basically solve MY problem which is the irritation. I like Picassa and Google Earth and don’t want to lose them.

The Solution:

Get “Little Snitch” and set all of the Google Updater entries to “Deny Any Connection”

Ok … it costs about 30 dollars but I had bought it anyway a long time ago because it is a TERRIFIC firewall program that not only acts like a firewall should, but it also has a really cool internet connection monitoring interface. Imho it’s well worth the buy and everyone should get it.

AND it solved this Irrrrrrrrritating problem.
