Fixed it this way:
I de-installed Chrome
ran CCleaner, then
re-downloaded and re-installed Chrome.
The new Chrome install even kept all of my bookmarks, and in the same order. I had exported them, so I could next import them.

Chrome always leaves behind the previous version when you update...it is that which psi continues to detect. You can remove it by clicking on the + sign alongside the offending item....then click on the Open Folder icon ( right hand of the two...without the dot ). Right click on the old version found and delete and rescan...all should be in order. You need do this each time Chrome updates.
Hope this helps...regards,

Did exactly that and even though the folders are NOT there, Secunia keeps saying that they are. See below. There are no 12.0.742.122 folders. I deleted them. Even rebooted and Secunia still says they're there. Now what? Do I need to uninstall Google, run CCleaner and then reinstall Chrome??


C:\Users\Jerry\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Applica tion\12.0.742.122\chrome.dll, version: 12.0.742.122
C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome Frame\Application\12.0.742.122\chrome.dll, version: 12.0.742.122 (Business)

Hello tenderfoot ,

I use a Dev channel version of chrome browser but the stable channel version of Chrome Frame , so I can only refer to the latter .

Today I ran a full scan of the PSI and I saw displayed :-

1)Chrome frame version 12.x as "End Of Life" and the file path was the same as yours without the (x86) notation :ie: C:\Program Files \Google\Chrome Frame\Application\12.0.742.122\chrome.dll, version: 12.0.742.122 (Business)

2)A new patched version 13.0.482.107 (upgrade since Tuesday 2nd August) .

I clicked the [+] sign to the lhs of the "EOL" entry and then clicked the very small yellowish "open folder" folder icon - without the red blob (to the left of the "detected instance pathway) - and this displayed the folder/files in Explorer with the 12.x version "blue highlighted" . I rightclicked this folder and selected "delete" , after a couple of minutes the PSI tray icon showed the removal of 12.x in a popup without the need to rescan or reboot .

What do you see if you follow the same method of "opening the folder" ?? Can you see hidden files on your system ?? What is your OS ??

Anthony

When you delete, are you deleting at the emboldened point shown below ?



C:\Users\Jerry\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Applica tion\12.0.742.122\chrome.dll, version: 12.0.742.122
C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome Frame\Application\12.0.742.122\chrome.dll, version: 12.0.742.122 (Business)
