Secunia reports Google chrome 3x as a threat. I do not find google chrome on my computer with a search or in the remove programs. Why is this?

Hi bobmiller;

Most likely Chrome had been installed at some time and then removed. PSI has found some 'leftover' files. To find them, please do the following:

=======
If not already, please run PSI in Advanced Mode.

To do this click on the PSI icon, in the system tray, to open the interface. In the top right corner, is "SIMPLE" blue in color and "ADVANCED" black? If not, click on "ADVANCED".

Click on the "Insecure" tab, Click on the [+] to the left of the program in question.

In the "Toolbox" click on the "Technical details" icon. Listed under "Version Detected:" it shows the old version PSI is reporting. The "Installation Path" is where PSI is finding the old stuff.

To go there, click on the "Open Folder" icon. This will open the folder where the old file(s) is(are).
=======

After clicking the "Open Folder" icon, delete the Chrome folder and it's contents.


Regards;

Fred
