When I click on "SECURE BROWSING" I see a double ( seemingly identical ) entries for Google Chrome.....followed by one entry for IE, and one for FIREFOX. Why the double entry for GOOGLE CHROME.

You probably have 2 file instances for Chrome. For each browser file installed, a box is created in secure browsing. When Chrome updates (sometimes silently), a new file is created, which leaves any previous files, unless manually deleted.

The latest current stable version of Chrome is 6.0.472.63. Look under Patched tab (also Advanced interface) for 2 entries for Google Chrome (also maybe found under Insecure or End-of-life tabs, depending on status).

If a lower version is found, it can be deleted, as follows:

- click [+] on l.h.s. of old Chrome listing; choose Open Folder icon, and click; make sure old file version no. is highlighted; right click and delete. (may require further deletion from Recycle bin).

If PSI tray icon pop-up bubble doesn't recognise change, after a short time, then reboot and rescan PSI.

The above relate to PSI - there may be differences, if using 2.0 beta.
