I have some programs (such as MS Office 2000) that are uout of date but I keep them for some compatbility reasons. Isn't there a way to tell PSI to ignore these programs so they do not appear in the report?

I have the same problem with Office 2000 on my old XP machine. And the same goes for Adobe Photoshop Elements 8. Although there is a minial chance of having virus in very, very seldom cases. I do not need to buy the newest version of Photoshop Elements. Claus Leopold.

Do this: select scan results, select software to be ignored, press on box with a + at the left
side of the program. You see under detectes instances two small yellow boxes, the left
with a red dot. select the one with the red dot and you create an ignore rule.'

Hi

On the Scan Results tab, you can expand the entry for any program by clicking the "+" to the left of the program entry. To the left of each detected entry of the program in question there will be 2 buttons.
The leftmost of the 2 buttons (the one with a red 'dot' over the folder icon) next to each instance will add an ignore rule for the selected program, which will prevent it from being included in future scans or statistics, and it will immediately remove it from the scan results.
