I just updated to version 5.0.375.70 of Google Chrome to address Insecure threats identified by PSI, but it's still detecting only version 5.0.375.55 even after running a complete scan and a program scan. Is this a known issue?

Thanks.

Hi Mysterio

Normally after an update, a re-start of your PC and rescan of PSI is required for the changes to take effect and be recognised.

However, I have just updated to the latest Chrome and the changes were picked up without the need for either of the above (via the bubble from PSI tray icon, when program monitoring is enabled).

Unfortunately, as is normal with Chrome updates, the old insecure file was still left behind - I have copied and pasted my standard response for resolving this, below - use what you require, as I've only edited for version number changes.

It may be that after you've shutdown your PC for the day, and start up again tomorrow, then PSI will pick up the new version of Chrome (it could already be there, but you may not be aware if you're using PSI in Simple mode), but for now I would follow my guidelines below to remove the old, insecure file.

Quote:

"A common problem when updating Chrome, is that the new version creates a new file and still leaves the old insecure file, which PSI reports. This old file needs to be manually removed.

You need to use PSI on the Advanced mode interface - click "Advanced" on top right of PSI window, then "OK". Along the top is a series of tabs.

Firstly, to check if Chrome is correctly updated/patched, go to the tab "Patched" and click - here is a list of all your patched programs.

Scroll down to Google Chrome 5.x, and for the version number, you should see 5.0.375.70 - if you have already updated to the latest up to date version.

Now click the tab "Insecure" (red lettering, when there's a problem). The old Chrome file should be listed here. On its left is "[+]" - click on this to reveal toolbox icons, then find "Open Folder" and click this.

This takes you to the location of the old Chrome file. You should see both the up to date version no. (5.0.375.70) and the old version no. (5.0.375.55). Make sure the old version no. is highlighted, right click, then delete.

This now goes to recycle bin, where you probably need to further delete it (as PSI also reports its contents). Reboot your PC and full re-scan PSI - this should now resolve this problem.

If your require further assistance, then post back here."

EDIT: All the above relate to my using PSI v.1.5.0.2 and NOT the new PSI version, TP2.0, released today.

Thanks for the reply. Your solution was the same one I determined with some experimenting.

I do not have Google Chrome installed but Secunia shows it as a threat.

Hi tvoigt;

As Timow is possibly done for the day, may I help?

Running PSI in "Advanced" mode, click on the "Insecure" tab, click on the [+] to the left of the Chrome listing.

In the "Toolbox" section, click on the "Open Folder" icon, delete the "Chrome" folder, which is a parent to the "5.0.375.55" folder (or possibly lower version #). This will 'remove' what is left of Chrome on your system, which is what PSI is detecting.


Regards;

Fred

Thank you! This worked like a charm even though I was uneasy to say the least to click on the advanced button. (I am very much a novice). Your step by step guidance solved my repeated scans and downloads. Thank you

Hi mlm;

Even though "Advanced" mode sounds scary, do not be intimidated. PSI only show more & tells more when in "Advanced".

As long as you only take actions that you know are safe and/or take the advice of someone on the forum that you trust, you will be safe. Almost all here offer good suggestions, few times will people knowingly lead you down the wrong path. Most likely, someone else will step up & tell you that their advice was wrong.

And, of course, this is how you learn stuff.


Regards;

Fred
