We had this issue too – tried manually starting and the service would stop automatically. Explanation of issues above was clear, so we removed the service from scope/view and are green.

Maybe I’m just a bit thick, but it took me a little while to find out how to filter the services, so I’ll just add a few steps in hopes of clarify solution to others:

  1. Click the red Services link located in the Local Server group on the Server Manager Dashboard.
  2. Click the Services drop down on the Services Detail View. This will say “All” if you are not currently filtering services, it will say “Multiple” if you are already filtering
  3. Scroll down to “Google update Service (gupdate)” and un-check the box to filter it from this view.
  4. Click OK

You may have to repeat this in the “All Servers”, also located on the Server Manager Dashboard.

Thank you again – this cleared our warning
