I am running Windows 7 64 bit using chrome browser. I have uninstall from the program options, removed all traces of the software and when I try downloading it indicates I need to uninstall manually cause there is a older version on my computer as I said I have remove all traces of the software.

I'm not exactly sure that I understand you......are you trying to uninstall psi; or has psi found an older version/file of Chrome which you need to uninstall ?

Is the following from the FAQ of any help ?
http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal...

I have updated one of my programs, but an older version is still detected by the Secunia PSI. What can I do?
Some programs leave behind the older version when updating to a new one. Some vendors do this deliberatively by policy, and some vendors by mistake. An example of a vendor deliberatively leaving behind the old version is Google, who do not remove old versions when installing updates for Google Chrome. This is an intentional policy on Google's behalf, and is done to prevent developers using Chrome from losing any of their work.

I uninstalled secunia psi to reinstall, but I am getting a error message that I have a older version which I uninstalled it from the program files and all traces of the software including the folder.
It's the secunia older version that's still on but I don't see any thing indicating that it's on there.

It....Secunia....must be picking up something.....possibly entries still in the registry ?
Is it actually preventing you from re-installing ?
What version are you trying to get from/to ?
Have you got Revounstaller ? Does psi show as an entry in it ?
