If this has been discussed somewhere else I apologize. I'm new to this.
Is there some way to undo the Ignore command? When I first installed PSI applied the Ignore command to too many programs that were insecure or outdated.

I uninstalled the program then re-installed it, hoping it would start from scratch, but it didn't. All the old Ignore commands were still in place.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Hi glnncpr;

Welcome to the Secunia forum.

If using PSI version 2.0, open "Configuration" on the left, click on "Settings", click on "Ignore Rule" tab, right click the program to be restored, click "Delete".

My tip for you would be to let you score be low and fix the insecure as time allows. Don't try to fix everything all at once. One at a time avoids confusion. If you have trouble updating a particular program go on to the next. When the easy ones are done go back to the hard ones. If you get stumped, start a thread on this forum under 'Programs', use a descriptive Topic Header such as, "Problem updating Flash Player".

Programs with no updates available may be insecure but you have done all you can do.

End of life programs should be updated to the new version. That usually means buying it from the vendor/manufacturer. If no new version is available or you can't justify the expense, you need to consider the risk. If the program is used off-line, the odd are significantly in favor of keeping it. Also consider another vendor or freeware. If an EOL program is kept as a legacy or seldom used and you are aware of the risk, set an ignore rule for the program.

The ignore rule is best used to 'hide' backups and archives on a 'live' disk. Using ignore rules to make you score look good or to avoid pop-ups kind of defeats the purpose of PSI.

Long winded, but hope this helps.


Regards;

Fred

@ glnncpr

In the PSI interface, under Configuration, click Settings, then ignore rules.

You see the names of the programs you set in ignore rules, right click the
program you want to restore back and there is two choices: Edit & Delete.

Choose delete and voila!

Good luck

@ glnncpr, apologies for pirating your thread!

@ John, thank you, I greet you from the cold barren woodland of Missouri (actually it's not that barren and it got up to 45 F today).

I'm happy to see your score has made you a Contributor, congrats.
