i have the latest version of Google Chrome installed, as per proposed solution, but PSI continues saying 7.0.517.41 is installed and therefore unsecure.
what is the problem here?

Tho' you update a program, the previous version isn't always automatically removed; and psi will continue to detect even if residing in the Recycle bin.That is the case with Chrome....the previous version needs be manually removed.
You should have the up to date version showing in the Patched tab/Secure Browsing; and the older file in the Insecure tab. If you click on the +sign alongside the entry it will expand to reveal the file path to it. If uncertain how to proceed, post that info back to the forum; together with version of psi and Operating System.
Hope this helps......regards,

Chrome creates a new folder with each update - now you have 2 Chrome folders -- the latest 8.x and the old insecure 7.x -- the latter needs manually deleting.

Use PSI Open Folder or navigate using Windows Explorer to the file location and right click and delete folder 7.0.517.41 (further deletion from Recycle bin may be required).

On XP, Chrome is found here (as you haven't stated your OP, it may not be the same, if not running XP):

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\

Re-scan PSI.

N.B. You will probably find that latest Chrome 8.x is listed under Patched/Scan Results (again no mention of which PSI version you are using), but no browser box in Secure Browsing.

Computing is not yet a perfect science - it still requires humans.
