Google Chrome Updates

We are running some servers and need to run an older version of Chrome. The problem we are having is that Chrome updates to the latest version after a couple of days. So far I have done the following any other ideas are welcome as this is getting rather frustrating.

1. Disabled updates via chrome://plugins/
2. Removed Chrome Update tasks from task scheduler
3. Removed the C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Updates folder
4. Added the following registry keys.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Update]
"Update{8A69D345-D564-463C-AFF1-A69D9E530F96}"=dword:00000000
"DisableAutoUpdateChecksCheckboxValue"=dword:00000001
"AutoUpdateCheckPeriodMinutes"=dword:00000000
"UpdateDefault"=dword:00000000

5. We also added a GPO policy to disable Chrome updates.

Any other ideas would be great.

In several questions here, no one has found a way to prevent Chrome from updating.  It may be easier to fix the problem that you're seeing.

Just FYI - Our GPO for preventing Chrome updating was working fine (now turned off and clients are free to update).

I believe this was under Computer Config\Policies\Admin templates\Classic Admin templates\Google\Google Update\Preferences.

We had the "Auto-update check period override" set to 0 minutes and the check box for "disable all auto-update checks" ticked.
