Updating registry entry
2- There are a couple of options to choose from: Send to Compressed (zip) folder) - A window might ask you to backup/zip and place it on the desktop, click yes. So, in /etc/hosts I added: I have tried all of these options and none seem to work.
(message: Windows cannot create the compressed folders here. ) - Move the newly created zip file to the original location. (message: You need administrator permission to copy this file). Sometimes I actually got a message "Google Update is disabled" when I checked the "About" page, but somehow a week later it was still updated.
(Just deleting it, OR saving a copy, OR renaming it OR even better just in case I one day need to do an update: Zip the content for future potential re-use).
Easy solution : 1- Go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\ and find the folder "update". I blocked tools.on localhost temporarily so that I could install previous version and prevent updating to the version that is breaking the label printing.
I have set no rules for internet access but if somehow it does get to execute I will get a popup asking if I want to grant it internet access.both in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Update AND HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Policies\Google\Update since it is a 64-bit machine.
