Even though I update the applications that are listed as threats, after I update the application and then rescan the same warnings are still present. Even though I have now installed version 10.10 it still shows version 9 as being a threat. Should I just ignore the threat? The same situation is true for Divx, Apple I-Tunes, and Firefox - I hope you can help.

Afterthought

Could the scan be picking up older versions of the applications on my backup drive??

Thanks Cal (Twogreen)

Hi twogreen;

You have most likely answered your own question. First be sure your runnig PSI in "Advanced" mode. The top right corner of the window, is "SIMPLE" blue in color and "ADVANCED" black? If not, click on "ADVANCED".

Now click on the "Insecure" tab, then click on the [+] to the left of the program you wish to start with. Click on the "Technical details" icon in the toolbox. Is the Version Detected the old version? Is the Installation Path showing the file in your back-up drive? If so you may create an ignore rule for the drive to make it go away (as far as PSI is concerned). This is perfectly safe as long as the file is a back-up only.

You can create an ignore rule by clicking the "Settings" tab, then click on "Create Ignore Rule" at the bottom.


regards;

Fred

Fred, Thanks for your reply and assistance. I have done as you suggested and now seem to be almost there. I have a couple of programs that are still showing up as security risks (Divx and Apple I-Tunes) These are not applications that I regularly use so I will probably just remove them. Perhaps that will do the trick. Again thanks for your help.

Cal

Hi Cal;

The iTunes sounds pretty safe. You probably downloaded it unknowingly, with another Apple product you actually wanted like QuickTime.

The DivX you might very well need. It's a common video codec. If you want to uninstall anyway, here is a link to download the latest version if you need it back, http://www.divx.com/en/win .

Post back with info on file path & version # if more help is needed.
