Google Chrome automatically updates when new versions of Flash Player are available. The integrated Google Chrome Flash plug-in cannot be uninstalled using the Flash Player uninstaller. You can only enable or disable the integrated plug-in. You may have to relaunch the browser in order to activate the latest version. Please go to Customize and control Google Chrome > About Google Chrome and check if the latest version installed.

If you you are unable to update Google Chrome Browser, run Google Software Removal Tool, which corrects the auto-update issue. Alternatively, you can check for update by visiting chrome://components page.
