PSI is scanning external devices such as usb devices looking for targets. Is there any way to limit this to the extent that I wish to scan only the hard drive of the local machine.

I have checked the settings of PSI with C: defaulted and non-changeable.

The target matches are being found on devices not appearing in the settings dialogue

No version of PSI is capable of searching anything except hard drives installed internally or by hard wiring.

If you are adamant that PSI is checking USB drives then you have found A MAJOR error not reported or noted before.

I would assemble your evidence & send it to Secunia as advised here:

EDIT:
This is a screen shot of a test scan I have just completed. You will note that all type 2 drives (USB) are skipped by default.

D Drive is my back up & I have excluded it.
E Drive is my DVD.
