Hello ,

As a new member of the forum , to help resolve your problem , here are some instructions to help you first of all get the best out of PSI :-

1)use PSI in "advanced" mode ;
2)in the "settings" tab make sure that the box in the first/upper section is NOT ticked in order to have the maximum info available ;
3)tell us in which "tab(s)" your problem programme is located ;
4)in that tab , click on the + in the box at the left end of the programme , the page will expand ;
5)in the expanded page , tell us what is written in the "installation path" ;
6)in the "toolbox" section , lower down , the link "technical details" should confirm the installation path details ;
7)click on the link "open folder" and you will see more details concerning the location of the "problem" .

Posting these details will help the Forum help you , if/when you have a problem .

If you have correctly updated your version of Chrome , then what is PSI reporting and in which tab ??

It may have found another old file or your latest version is out of date.

Anthony

I have a similar problem with PSI showing an old version of Chrome in the "insecure tab" after I downloaded the solution. The old version is showing in the "technical details" and is confirmed in the "open folder" tabs. the insecure version is in:
c:\documents & settings\bob\local settings\application data\Google\Chrome\Application\4.0.249.78\Chrome dll.

I also have the later version 4.0.249.89 installed.

The old version does not show up in Windows "Add/Remove" utility.

Do I just delete the old folder?

@Bobevanusa ,

Yes , all hat you need to do is delete the "4.0.249.78" folder (nothing else) ; PSI may detect it in the garbage until you throw it out .

The same thing is likely to occur at the next update .

Take care
Anthony

@avskpsi ,

PSI has found some files somewhere .

To find the files you need to follow the instructions in my first post on this thread (above) and , that will tell you and us where the files are located by PSI ; they might be in the Recycle bin or on a back-up system , for example .

Let us kow how you get on .

Anthony

Try: re-boot computer and re-scan PSI.

I recommend you just follow Anthony's advice. Uninstalling Chrome will not solve the problem e.g., f there are older versions left somewhere in your folders.
