At present I use Windows7 and Google Chrome 7.o517.44.The OSI reveals 7.0517.41 as an insecure program.It marks all other programs secure except Google Chrome.Why?

You need to remove the older file/version which Chrome leaves behind at update. Secunia continues to detect even if still in the Recycle bin.
Hope this helps....regards,

When you updated Chrome to 7.0.517.44 it created a new file.
The old Chrome file (7.0.517.41) still remains and is flagged as insecure.
You need to manually delete this.

Navigate to the file location, using Windows Explorer - I can't give you the location for W7 (it should be given by the OSI scan result), but on my XP it is here (and may be similar for W7):

C:\Documents and Settings\<usename>\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\7.0.517.44\chrome.d ll

Once at the location right click the old file version number (7.0.517.41) and delete.
You should further delete this from recycle bin, to fully clear the insecurity.

You can choose whether to run a new scan or not, to check that the insecurity is gone.
