1) My default PDF Reader is NOT Adobe -- because it is a security nightmare,
2) I do not have Adobe Reader installed as an independent program.
3) Google Chrome 10 browser comes with an Adobe Reader plugin which must be what Secunia PSI is picking up.
4) I have overridden the Adobe Plugin with my choice of a different PDF reader as my default and the Google Chrome Adobe Plugin is therefore disabled.
5) If I were to install PSI's recommenced update, it would cause a conflict with Google, as per my settings.
6) If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Are you saying that the PSI is detecting an "Adobe PDF NPAPI plug-in" via Chrome ; if so where is the PSI finding the problem ?? Click the [+]next to the insecure display and tell us the "installation path" or "detected instance" location .
Also which version of the PSI and Chrome browser are you using on which OS .
If it helps , Chrome has it's own "Chrome PDF Viewer" plug-in installed in the Chrome folder , but usually it detects other NPAPI viewer plug-ins in their location , in my case Zeon Plus PDF located in/for Mozilla Firefox .
The PSI will pick up what it sees but does not differentiate between "enabled" and "disabled" but between "installed" and "un-installed" ; If it was not a clean un-install the PSI may be finding left over files and they may be a risk .
You need to know if it is "broke" and maybe does need fixing .
It always seems impossible until its done.

Is it possible psi could be detecting an old leftover file somewhere ?
Might the following help ?;-
psi versions 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206
Use the Advanced interface...or switch to it ( Simple/ Advanced..top right of psi panel ).
1/. Click on the + sign alongside the programme to expand it.
2/. Click again on Tech Details in the Toolbox to confirm the installation path of the detected file/prog. 3/.Post the Installation Path back to the forum if you are uncertain how best to proceed.
psi version 2.0
Go to Results from the Dashboard
1/. Click on the + sign alongside the file.
2/. This will reveal the file path.
3/. Post the info back to the forum if uncertain how best to proceed.
As happens often at times of Chrome Stable updates....it seems usually to take a day or so for the detection rules to be set in order again. Chrome moves from Beta version and there always seems to be some resultant disarray. Having just had a look thro' Stable updates : and plug ins for my own browsers, I wasn't able to confirm the version in use.....tho' of course they may differ anyrate for Dev and Canary.
