I use Win XP Pro on a standalone desktop PC. I like Secunia PSI and have readily recommend it to others. My internal hard drive is partitioned C:\ ,D:\,and E:\ and I have an external hard drive G:\ which is used only for backing up all the PC programs and data on the internal hard drive.

When Secunia PSI scans my PC it selects the programs from the back up drive G:\, which are necessarily earlier versions of programs installed on C:\, D:\, and E:\ drives. How do I set up Secunia PSI to scan only the current versions of programs on my C:\, D:\, and E:\ drives?

Thank you,

If you are sure it is safe to ignore drive G you can create an Ignore Rule. Go to the Settings page and fill in the details....then click on Create Ignore Rule.
psi will stll continue to scan the drive but the Results won't be shown.
Hope this helps......regards,

The following may be of use for future reference: copy of recent official reply to another.

Ignoring individual programs.

For 1.5:
Switch to Advanced Mode
Click the + next to the Program Name
Click the Ignore button
In 2 Beta , for an individual programme :-

1)on the results page either click the [+] and then double click the expanded entry displayed or double click the original entry :

2)in the opened window , look in the bottom module "detected installation" and right click the programme entry as suggested and you have the choices of "open folder" and "ignore rule" .

The latter sets/you confirm the rule for the individual programme .

"Settings" in both 2 Beta and 1.5x have a facility to create your own ignore rules .

If you follow the instructions posted above, you will be able to ignore the PSI's results from a specific program. Keep in mind, though, that simply ignoring a problem will not deal with the threat it faces.

Please also note that in PSI 1.x versions, an "ignored" directory will still be scanned, though the results will be disregarded, while in the PSI 2.0 Beta, ignoring a drive or folder will truly omit it from scanning.
