OK PEOPLE, I FIGURED IT OUT. YOU NEED TO CLICK "START" TYPE "GOOGLE" RIGHT CLICK "GOOGLE CHROME" AND CLICK "OPEN FILE FOLDER." IT WILL OPEN A FOLDER WHERE GOOGLE CHROME IS INSTALLED. NOW DELETE THE ENTIRE FILE FOLDER 9.0.597.107 NOW RE-SCAN YOUR COMPUTER WITH SECUNIA AND VOILA YOU WILL GET 100% SECUNIA SYSTEM SCORE. GOOGLE CHROME STILL WORKS JUST FINE AFTER YOU DELETE THAT FOLDER.

HI ,

It is one way , another (easier) way is to click the [+] to the lhs of the/any problem program (Google Chrome 9.x in this case) and in :-

PSI version 1.5.x you will get an expanded page and lower down an "open folder" icon in the "Toolbox" :
or
PSI version 2.0.x , you will see "detected instances" in the expanded entry and there are two quite small beige/yellowish folder icons to the left of the/each entry; the one without the red blob is the "open folder" icon .

clicking the icon will open the folder /file in Explorer .

Hope that helps .

Anthony

PS : Posting in capitals is very tiring to read ; turn the cap lock off , please .

What path does PSI give U?

The current stable version of PSI is 2.0.0.3001. If unsure which version U have right click on the Tasktray Icon & select About.

The download link to update is here:
http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal...

FINDING A FILE PATH

From the DASHBOARD page click on SCAN RESULTS.

1. This will list all your programmes with a + to the left of each one.
2. Click the + sign next to the item that U want help with.
3. This will reveal the path under DETECTED INSTANCES.
4. Highlight it then copy (CTRL+C) then paste (CTRL+V)) that path back to the Forum.
OR THIS METHOD WHICH GIVES A HELPER MORE INFORMATION
4a Below DETECTED INSTANCES you will see You can double click this row for additional information & options>double click it>a box will appear>click TROUBLESHOOT REPORT>Now highlight the information revealed from START to END & copy it (CTRL+C) then post it to the Forum (CTRL+V)

I am up to date with Secunia.
I ran REVO uninstaller on google chrome and it would not uninstall everything, but by using Unlocker on google update and then deleting Googles file folder and then rebooting - all instances of Google disappeared.
I reinstalled google chrome and then ran Secunia - I got a clean bill of health.

I have no idea why all of this happened or whythe first two fixes in this thread would not work.

Sorry, there is no file 9.0.597.107 on my system...
The problem as described by others remains: PSI says that 10.0.648.127 has been found - insecure - and that there is a new version, namely 10.0.648.127 which is recommended to install. -
I had decided that this problem must be ignored - but on this very latest version of PSI (updated yesterday) I even do not find a way to ignore as it was possible in the past :-(

Hi ,

You will only have the Chrome 9.x folder/files on your computer if that version was previously nstalled and you have not manually removed the files since installing 10.x .

The 10.x version detection by the PSI was corrected by Secunia yesterday ; in the past some users have seen the PSI "slow to react" .

I would suggest you run a full system scan (with or without reboot).

For the "ignore rule" for an individual programme , you can click the [+] on the lhs next to the "problem programme entry on the "Scan Results" page ; in the expanded display , to the left of the "detected instance" , are two yellowish/beige icons ; the one with the red blob is for the ignore rule whilst the other is to open the folder .

Otherwise go Dashboard -> Configuration -> Settings -> Ignore Rules .

Hope that helps .

Anthony

PS: in some/many cases , with the PSI version 2.0.x , you should see the programme update in realtime , confirmed by a tray icon pop-up bubble without a rescan .

Dear Anthony,

your answer was absolutely convincing, competent and on top of it friendly - I am very thankful and happy with it!!!
The problem has been solved.
And you were right. I had installed Chrome only a few days ago so there was no "old version". Unfortunately I didn't think this through...
Now I ran a short scan just for Chrome - and it was valued as secure!
And I checked the ignore-possibilities and found everything as described by you - great!
So I am very pleased because I have been helped so effectively!
Have a nice weekend

Maurice I have pasted your unsubscribe link that comes in the thread change notification.

see "If you wish to unsubscribe, please go to http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/781...

Stay Secure,

Secunia

This does not work! I have tried it several times and all it does is bring me back to the first entry in the thread.

You said to click "here" to unsubscribe - The "here" in your note is not a link, it's just bold set of letters>
