Windows 7: certificate security error

06 Jul 2012   #1

Windows Seven, Home Premium, x64 certificate security error

Hello, I went to install Google Chrome and the following appeared on IE9 "Do you want to run this application?" It then says it is from, "". I clicked on publisher -> details -> basic constraints and it had a yellow error symbol. The following were in the box, "Subject Type=End Entity
Path Length Constraint=None". Then go to Certification Path and it says, "The issuer of this certificate could not be found". Can I ask what's going on here? Is it OK to continue the installation or has the .exe being altered with?

P.S. I went onto the Google Forums for some support, but I have had no response in 14 hours. So thought I'd post it here since I always get a helpful reply.

Are you saying you were downloading Chrome with IE, and IE asked if you want to continue? Where did you initiate the download? redirects to, which is the legitimate Chrome download site. If in doubt, this download is safe:

Download Google Chrome 20.0.1132.47 -

But I'd say the 1st download was also ok, why the certificate error I am unsure, perhaps because of the source. safe ? View website safety report with Review
