mcafee says I need to update chrome 36.0.1985.143

For about a year about once a week or so I get from mcafee total protection that I need to update chrome 36.0.1985.143..  It is also listed as a critical update that I should download and install.    But that is, as far as I can tell a very old version of chrome and I have a much newer version on my machine which, when I check is very much up to date.  Now the update my app feature at times provides very useful information so I do not want to turn it off.  But why does it keep asking me to install this old version of chrome?

Re: mcafee says I need to update chrome 36.0.1985.143

hello @forum 

i had a similar problem in the past when i was using Chrome. i could resolve it by doing a reinstall of Chrome. it was probably caused by an earlier update of Chrome itself

have you tried a reinstall of Chrome itself ?......

if yes, than better to wait when the mod respons.

Thanks for the response.  Yes, have done so, so will have to see what the mods think.  Actually in the past I have had this happen with other apps (e.g. adobe acrobat XI) and it eventually goes away if I cancel a few times, at least I think this is what does it.  But this one appears to be lasting longer.  Plus it is for an old version of chrome not the current version.  I checked my program list and there is no such version on it.  As you say is probably caused by some update.  Mine is now 76.0.3809.100

Yes, that updater has made a few mistakes in the past but they quickly remedied it.
