Using PSI v2.0.0.3001
Recently I have installed several programs that have not been detected either by the tray monitor or in the scans in the main program.
Is there a reason for this?
Do I have to submit unidentified programs somewhere to enable their detection?
How does PSI identify a program?
I know in the past it has detected programs that were not even installed(had the install file on my system but hadn't installed the actual program).

How does PSI identify a program: http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal...

To report a missing program use the link at the top right of the Scan Results page.
Secunia do not normally monitor Beta or pre-release versions.

Check in Configuration > Settings > Drives that you are scanning all the drives you need to.
