A scan said Chrome 17.0.963.65 is outdated so I downloaded and installed v18.0.1025.142 (which had Dutch or German titles in the dialogue boxes).

V18 is on the list of OK programs but 17 was still shown as end of life so I deleted the file in the folder using the icon in the scan results.

A rescan showed V17 is in

C:\Users\Tim (Administrator)\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Applic ation\chrome.exe, version 17.0.963.65

but it's not actually there - HELP

Hello Tim ,

You say "rescan" ; normally you need to run a full system scan and not an "individual programme rescan" .

Which did you use ??

Is this V 17 location :-

C:\Users\Tim (Administrator)\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Applic ation\chrome.exe, version 17.0.963.65

the Chrome browser "default" location where you also find V 18 ??

EDIT:were/are the "Germanic (probably Norwegian)" languages in the PSI installer dialogue or in the your now installed V 18 ??

Yes, I've done several full scans after closing Chrome and also after restarting my PC.

The folder does contain v18, and also contained v17 before deletion so I assume it's the default folder.

It was just the Chrome Installer which had the foreign language; Chrome runs fine.

Hello Tim ,

Some points worth bearing in mind :-

1)When you get an Insecure/EOL display for Chrome in the PSI , first off , open Chrome and go to/click the Spanner Icon (top rhs) and select "About Google Chrome" ; this will auto check for updates and either tell you you are up to date or IF the auto silent update has not yet done it's job , will update you straightaway .

2)The old version is "technically" not available to the bad guys and the "silent updater" always leaves the "old" version behind . When the PSI picks it up an "Insecure/EOL" then you can clean up as you did ; some people clean up after every update .

3)if you feel you want to "reinstall" then go to the Google website and download from there . This "should" remove the "old" version when installing the new and will usually pick pick the default installation folder . I , personally , would leave the PSI "solution" or a third party site installer :eg: FileHippo , as a very last resort when updating any Browser software . I do not know why your install of V 18 did not remove V 17 for you .

4)The "Norwegian Blue" installer from Secunia was a known "version" bug (confusing but not dangerous) and was supposed to have been fixed a while ago . You might wish to email support@secunia.com and tell them it is still alive :)) They will not be back on the PSI until Monday next (CET) .

I use XP 32 bit and do not know if your location is default or whether it should be in something like a ..\ProgramFiles(x86)\.. folder on a 64 bit system (which some people report) .

Not to worry , as long as your browser is working , I would leave it as it is for now .

Don't know why you cannot find V 17 (that you already removed) in the folder that the PSI is pointing to nor why it is still pointing , esÍcially if V 18 is there. This could be a PSI "bug" , one simple thing to do would be to do a reinstall of the PSI and run another full scan .

It's getting late for me , so why not reinstall the PSI when you have time and I will check back tomorrow .

Anthony

I hadn't thought of reinstalling PSI but v17 still showed afterwards.

After what you said about it not being available to anyone I'm going to leave it but I'll let secunia know.

Thanks

Tim
