In our organization, we have deployed Google Chrome (googlechromestandaloneenterprise.msi) alongside a bunch of settings in GPO. Among those settings, we control the update process. Since we want to control the update schedule and manage our bandwdth, we chose to disable all automatic updates and push out the MSI on a monthly basis. We have around 60 000 computers in more than 1500 physical locations. What we found out lately is, although the automatic updates are disabled, there is a portion of Chrome that always updates whenever it feels like. I'm referring to the component updater ie: pepperflash, WidevineCdm, CRLSet, etc.. The installation is machine based but those component are getting updated in the userprofile: "%localappdata%\Google\Chrome\User Data". I have looked everywhere but can't find anything as far as controlling this update mechanism from google. You can trigger the update regardless if you are an administrator or not. You just need to type chrome://components in the omnibox and update the components individually. even if you don't explicitly go there, it will update itself whenever it wants. Anyone has ever found a way to control the schedule or the behaviour of this component updater?
Thanks in advance.
