I ran a scan and software detected 3 issues that were corrected and put my computer at 100%.
But, it indicated that therewere 7 programs that need attention I wanted to know what to do besides running the advance tab becase one needs more technical experience.
How can I fine what those programs are and how to correct them.

Hello.
If you are at 100% using the Simple interface and don't intend moving to the Advanced; there's not the information or help available that you'd find by making the shift.
It's not really as difficult as it may seem.....and on the forum you'll always find someone to help/guide and advise.
I won't go into any more detail at present until you make the decision. 7 problems may seem a bit daunting....they could all be sorted in a week ? Best wishes,

@fasteddie717 - Go for it. Here is a starter for U - it is easy & U will get more benefits.

SETTING UP PSI IN THE ADVANCED MODE
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1. Open PSI by clicking the System tray icon or right click the icon & select Reload Interface.

2.Select the OVERVIEW tab.

3. In the top right corner U will see INTERFACE MODE - SIMPLE/ADVANCED. To be in the advanced mode the word SIMPLE should be blue and advanced black.

4. If advanced is blue click it. A message about advanced users may appear - ignore it - using the advanced mode is easy.

SETTING UP PSI FOR MAXIMUM ASSISTANCE
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1. Click on the SETTINGS tab.

2. The top box should be empty & the two remaining boxes ticked.

3. Right at the bottom is a facility to create Global Ignore Rules. By default PSI scans & publishes the results on all the hard drives of a PC. OEM partition (reinstallation) drives (normally drive D),second internal or external drives SOLELY used to backup your work & C:\Windows\i386 which can be ignored as they have no exposure. To save confusion in the future (by way of "false positives") U may consider it a good idea to create some Global rules now.

4. A separate Ignore Rule is required for each drive which can be set up as follows:

a.Click on CREATE IGNORE RULE

b.In the RULE NAME BOX insert something like MY BACKUP DRIVE (MY PARTITION DRIVE)

c.In the RULE BOX type D:\(or the drive letter U wish to ignore) - For folder i386 use C:\Windows\i386.

d.Click SAVE IGNORE RULE>CLOSE

All drives will continue to be scanned by default but the result from the ignored list will not be published.

This thread has an article by @Anthony Wells that may also be of help in understanding the advanced mode:
