I just installed Secunia PSI on my main desktop computer, however, it scans and tells me DivX is not secure, but when I install it, it still comes back as it being not secure. Also, if I uninstall DivX Secunia still lists it as being not secure. In advance mode it list all of Microsoft Office 2000 as being at end of life, however, I don't have Office 2000 installed on my computer. There are other programs not installed that are indicated as being not secure. I don't think Secunia PSI is ready for Windows 7.

Hi ldlacyguam;

Is this a clean install of Win7 or did you install as a dual boot/over the top of an older version of Windows? It's possible PSI is finding files from your previous Windows.

In PSI click on the Insecure (later the End-of-Life) tab, click on the [+] to the left of the insecure (EOL) program, click on the Technical details icon. Please post the Installation Path for each file here and you should be able to fix this.

This was a clean install of Windows 7 as it would not install over my Vista. Likewise the old system left by Windows 7 has been deleted.

The end of life programs it is scanning and most of the unsecure ones are are not installed they are stored on an external drive. Is there anyway to tell Secunia PSI not to scan external storage drives?

Hi,

Just had the same problem! In the Advanced Interface Mode, click the Settings tab. Click Create Ignore Rules. Enter the external drive to ignore. For my USB drive, I entered F:\ and the drive is ignored.

Cheers,
Mike
