Thread: http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/430... has been closed, but I have to make an addition to it, as a similar problem surfaced this morning. I noticed a "threat" in Open Office3.2, which is the latest version, and had been fine for months. I did not look at which file was being considered a threat, not expecting that PSI, all in a sudden finds something odd which was not there yesterday. I downloaded, and selected to repair the same file which I had before. It took me a good 90 min. to do that, but after rebooting the computer, the threat was still present. This time I right clicked on the name of the program, and it showed a "bad" file in my external drive, also in drive F.
I copied the repaired executable, and pasted into the F drive folder, and PSI was happy. This is something new being done by PSI detecting threats which are present now, and not a few hours earlier. Since PSI does not show which file is bad, it places the user in a situation to waste a lot of time. But, since it is easy to see which file is bad (right click), I will not waste any more time, and definitely will not be so worried. This is absurd!

Hi Fulvio,

You can create "Ignore Rules" for your computer's other data drives. Coincidentally, I too have an external drive to which I assigned the drive letter "F:". I also have other hard drives, D through E. So I simply created ignore rules for each drive other than my drive C which has Windows installed on it. To tell PSI to ignore your drive F, for example, create an Ingore Rule with a Rule Name parameter of "F" and a Rule parameter of "F:\" which tells PSI to ignore everything on your drive F.

Hope this helps!

Thanks. It should help.
But, I may leave things as they are, as I understand what's going on.
