PSI is picking up Norton AV 2006 from a D:\ Recovery file and identifying it as a problem. I haven't had Norton AV installed since I uninstalled it in 2006. When I try to access the file, I find that it doesn't exist. Secunia has a method for reporting programs that should be picked up & are not. Is there some mechanism for reporting programs that should not be picked up because they don't exist? i tried to set up an Ignore Rule for the file but that didn't work.

Hello.
Although a new forum user, you sound as tho' you may already be using the Advanced interface. So you've clicked on the + sign alongside the insecurity; found the file path; followed it, and nothing there ?
It may be worth mentioning at this point, that Secunia will detect old files/ versions, even if in the Recycle Bin....but that can't be the problem....such a long time has lapsed, as you say.
Do you use Revouninstaller and the Junk File Cleaner included in Tools therein ? That too may detect an old file left over after uninstall...it may be worth a go ?
Regards

The D drive is a OEM recovery drive issued with your PC.

The programme is perfectly safe & should be left alone. Just create an ignore rule for the whole drive which is not exposed but is scanned by PSI.

CREATING A GLOBAL IGNORE RULE
=============================

1.Click on the SETTINGS tab>scroll to the bottom & click on CREATE IGNORE RULE

2.In the RULE NAME BOX insert something like MY BACKUP DRIVE

3.In the RULE BOX type D:\

4.Click SAVE IGNORE RULE>CLOSE


All drives will continue to be scanned by default but the result from the drives ignored will not be published.

If this post has solved your problem could you please select the ACCEPT option. This will lock the thread and stop you & I from receiving unnecessary update emails.

I tried Revouninstaller's Junk File finder for D:\ and found 4 files but not the Symantec file that Secunia declares a problem.

Thanks to Mogs & Maurice. Good thinking - setting the Rule for the entire D:\ worked out well.
