Why am I seeing continuous repeats of the same patches on, at least, a daily basis? Additions and Deletions both. I realize that these notices generate from the provider but can't it be filtered to preclude the same entry repeating over and over?

I'm running W7, 64bit.

Which programs are you specifically getting warnings for several times?

Please try comparing the "Installation path" field of each detection with the other. Any chance the other detections are backups or something similar? (Post the paths here if in doubt).

Have you tried rebooting and rescanning?

hope this helps.

Same repeats. Checked and appears to be reading the backup files on satellite hard drive. OK - now understood - but still redundant. Is there a way to block the reading of the backup files?

Now - subscribed to thread but no Email notice of your response.

See Running and Scanning note 1 here :- An Ignore rule won't prevent the files being scanned.....but they won't be continually explained in the note; you should consider carefully.
Hope this helps...regards,
