This seems to be a better / easier way. In finder go to /Users/YourUserName/Library/Google
Then right click "get info" or CMD I and change the permissions on the "Google Folder" too read only and lock it.
You can also do this via terminal for advanced users.
This works for Hands Off or Little Snitch in fact you can delete "all the rules" for KsFetch and it hasn't come back for me in a long time.
This may interfere with Google software updates so if your Google stuff breaks just change the permissions back and update. Then change back if necessary.
You can also use the wildcards in Hands Off and Little Snitch they do work as well. If you the recent versions. Google it to learn how to use the wildcards.

I tired going into Finder as you suggested and then rebooted. At first I thought it worked, but a few hours later Little Snitch caught KSFETCH again! Then again!
I haven't made any rules for KsFetch in Little Snitch. I just tell Little Snitch to accept until I quit or else I will be bothered even more if I deny. I did another search in LIttle Snitch and no rules for KsFetch are there.
This is driving me crazy because I have been trying to stop this for over a month now. I must be missing something here. I feel this is so invasive of Google with it's annoying auto updater so many times per day. It's neverending.
I must be missing something here. I'm a little unsure of what to type in Terminal as I don't use it that much. Can someone confirm the code please?

If you don't know the basic command line syntax you would be better of not going there. You can damage your system if your not carefull. Just use finder and look at the pictures.
Hope it helps.
