I just updated Google Chrome to V.25.X from V.24.X, however Secunia is still flagging the file named old_chrome.exe that Google renames and leaves in the Program Files folder. It does not appear that they run the file and I have no idea why they keep the file after the update. But the result in PSI is that I have a ding against Google Chrome for a file that Google appears to want to keep there.

Maybe Secunia can find out why Google keeps the old file?

Thank you.

Jim

Thank you Maurice - I would never have found that; I read the FAQ a while back and that has apparently been added since.

Well I guess I can either leave things as they are or delete the old file, though I think I prefer to keep what the developer wanted there (Google).

Thanks again!

Jim
