I have run the PSI scanning and received 9 warnings (in reality only 4 as several was concerning the same program and woulds download the same update).
After having downloaded and updated the 4 updates, I ran the scan again.
This resulted in the same 4 (9) warnings.
I tried the restart the computer and ran PSI again, but again I received the warnings.
I am runnung Win7 Ultimate 64bit, have 3 harddiscs of which one is a SSD disc used for operating system. The PSI program is on a partion of one of the normal harddiscs.
How do I get rid of the (probably) old warnings?

Sorry
When I choose ADVANCED I could see, that the warnings all concerned old back-ups of the programs from my earlier XP system.
I have now deleted these and everything is OK

The PSI always warns you of a specific file, so the first step to determining what the PSI is alerting you to, is to find the "path" of the file. This is the location of the file the PSI is detecting, and can be seen in the "Installation Path" field after expanding the program entry with the "+" button.

Several applications fail to remove older versions of itself, and there is also a high probability that the PSI is detecting files on a backup drive, or in the Windows.Old directory (Since you're on Windows 7).

hope this helps.

EDIT:
You beat me to it. Glad everything worked out. ;)
