Hi Team,

Since we are migrated to Microsoft email system to Google email system, til that date many google websites keep on downloading updates from website. such as (plus.google,com, feedburner.google.com, etc etc). Because of this my internet speed always remain slow. I required only download mails from internet other all google options need to block..

Have you tried using the msconfig and go to startup and uncheck google, click ok and restart your computer.

What exactly are you talking about? What Google websites download updates to your PC? I think you are misinformed. If you are using Gmail through a web browser then nothing is being downloaded to your PC. If you are using Gmail with an email client like Outlook then only email is being downloaded.

You also posted in the wrong section, I;ll move your thread to the Web & Email section.

What is probably updating and there is no way to stop it is the Google Chrome browser.
If you don't want the updates then remove Google Chrome as a browser choice. Stick with FF and IE and if you want a 3rd choice, add Opera, Safari, Maxthon or Avant.
I had it on one computer and uninstalled it.

Firefox auto updates now by itself doesn't it? IE auto updates. Chrome is not related to Gmail other than they are both developed by Google.

I can't answer that. I've switched to Palemoon and I have FF ESR installed. As you can see, I still can check for updates manually.
