Have latest version of Chrome installed, but Secunia lists it as insecure. Just checking.

Hi IsabelleVt,

if you update Google Chrome, the files of the previous version are not deleted but kept in the folder c:\users\<your username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\ <old version number>.

Just delete all folders <old version number> except the most recent one (5.0.375.127).

Unfortunately I have had the same problem but the folder in question is unavailable/not a valid folder name/may have been moved and all the ms flannel.
The intersting thing is that OSI gives the whole thing a clean bill of health and can find no insecure or out of date programs.
I shall now go and sit in a darkened room and chant, "Computers are wonderful things".

After a very interesting half hour I went to google's own site and downloaded version 127. The PSI had previously downloaded 126. On that download 125 was left in situ according to Windows Explorer.

On tonights download the previous two versions don't show in Windows Explorer so I assume there are no odd bits hanging around.

Hi All;

Use PSI to your advantage. When Chrome updates (as it just did), and PSI shows the old version as insecure, you can do this to remove the old folder easily.

=======
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 on "Open Folder", simply delete the 'old' folder(s).

This is just one of the helpful utilities available when you have PSI in advanced mode.
