Hi, PaoloR

You've posted on the CSI forum - I don't know if you're a CSI user, but I've already offered advice to another user under Programs - so I hope it also applies to you.

In the absence of you including exact version numbers for Chrome, I have copied the reply I have already given, as follows:

"Chrome check for updates gives as latest, whereas in fact is now available.

In this instance, you need to click the download solution icon from the insecurity (Chrome) on the PSI window (not from Google).

I did this for both ...1042 (which was already out of date) and ...1045; and unusually for Chrome the old file was removed 2x and left just one correct file.

Alternatively it may be necessary to manually remove an old file.

Advanced mode interface > click on [+] (under insecure or patched tab) to expand > toolbox icons > Open Folder > highlight old version file > right click > delete > may require further deletion from recycle bin.

May have to reboot and rescan PSI - although I think the changes are instantly picked up by PSI."

Hope this helps, and dare I say - relevant.


Computing is not yet a perfect science - it still requires humans.
Was this reply relevant?
