Why is Run as a Dll Rundill32.exe connecting to GOOGLE

My firewall keeps catching "Run as a Dll.Rundll32.exe" and advises that it wants to connect to (not the real numbers because I can't remember them now.) I do not let it proceed, however if I manually key that address (whatever the numbers are), in my browser it takes me to Google. I have a thing about Google and want nothing to do with it. Every 5 minutes or so, my firewall is catching this thing trying to connect to Google.
I know XP needs this runDLL32, but why is it trying to connect to Google in the background? More importantly, how do I get rid of it?

Thanks for your help.

Look in Programs and Features, see if there is anything Google related. If so, uninstall it.

Sounds like Google Updater to me.
