Despite disabling it in Scheduled Tasks, and using Autoruns to do the same, always turns itself back on. Any program that so clearly runs contrary to the users wishes must be classed as "dangerous." But it does not appear to be spyware. jm
Although the Google searching service is outstanding, they also have a bad record of intrusion and collusion. Therefore, anything and everything planted by Google should be suspect, most especially when it is an automatic service instead of being on-call only, and most especially if it was put on my machine without my knowledge.  See also: Link gen-X
My computer was rebooting at odd times and just before the ERROR messages in my event log, there was gusvc as an event. I started deleting all google stuff to see if the problem stopped. XB
