    Reading through all the numerous web postings on how to stop Chrome and Google updating, the Group Policy method appears to be the best method: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/18483087/how-to-disable-google-chrome-auto-update . However, one needs a Win Pro+ version to use Group Policy.
    In the same above linked thread was posted:
    Therefore I recommend you create a new Eset HIPS user rule to do the equivalent. The screen shots given  below show how to do this. After mouse clicking on the Finish tab shown in the last screen shot, mouse click on any subsequent OK tab shown to save the HIPS rule.

    It's better described here : https://support.eset.com/en/kb2843-create-a-firewall-rule-to-allowdisallow-use-of-a-certain-application-in-my-windows-eset-home-product
    Just put a BLOCK instead of Allow , and for the exe path put C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Update\GoogleUpdate.exe  and then manually check for update in Chrome , it should fail.
    Disabling the services can help you also stop the update , but if it got enabled , it will update automatically , but you can disable them and only manually they can be started.
