I have set an MS update to Ignore, and now I need to rei-instate the PSI checker but I cannot find "programs that do not receive updates" link at the bottom of the scan results page as noted in the help file.
Anybody help?
Aslo why do both my win XP and win 7 pc's take sooooo loooong for PSI to load (about 4 mins) both machines are 3 gig CPU and 4 Gig ram?

Right click on the programme/file in question & select "Don't ignore updates to this program"

As the program is no longer updated, there is no referance to it in the scan results or anywhare for that matter?
(the prog in question is the MS Blaster prog maliciouse something or other )

If you have that file installed on your XP PC then PSI should find it & report. The file will be at the bottom of the list "greyed out".

It will not appear in Windows 7
