    I don't want it on my computer if the Updater is installed with it.

    It's a piece of software that installs without consent and runs in the background despite any good reason for needing to do so. :rolleyes:

    Amen, there is no reason, even if you were given the option I could live with it.

    It runs with root permissions.
    There's no option to turn it off.
    If you uninstall it, it gets reinstalled.

    Those are all problems for me, so I have no Google software installed on my machines.
