Microsoft Office Publisher 2007 is listed as an insecure program, but this is a backup on another hard drive. Clicking PSI's Solution button brings up Windows Update which finds nothing out of date on my C drive. Should I just delete the backup?

If you don't think you will ever need the backup copy you can delete it. Otherwise, set up an ignore rule:

If the other disk is only used for backup you could consider setting up an ignore rule for the entire disk.

It is a backup only disk, & I had considered the ignore rule, but am concerned about having a potential threat on my PC. I guess I can delete the current backup & just create a new one.

I think that would be the best solution.
