@OLLI_S Lots of good ideas.
The first one, that about excluding drives or folders, is getting a lot closer. I don't have a date yet, but we will soon make the final decision about how it should be implemented in the backend and then it shouldn't be long before there will be a UI component for it too.
@Tom Thanks. It worked now.

I am surprised (and very disappointed) that the feature "Additional Status for Update Available" (https://vulndetect.org/topic/492/additional-status-for-update-available) is not yet implemented or has at least the status "Work in progress".
Seems like the guys at VulnDetect are busy with other stuff that has not such a great benefit than that feature. This is very very sad!
@Tom It is very annoying, that keeping the system updated requires many manual steps.
I know, that VulnDetect informs me about available updates, but it still requires, that I install them manually (for most apps).
So I have to perform these steps manually:
Check for Microsoft Windows Updates
Check for Microsoft 365 Updates
Check for Microsoft Edge Updates
Check for Updates in the Microsoft Store (here I need some manual clicks)
Check for Norton 360 Updates
These updates are installed via the app directly, so there is no installer file available that I can download and istall.
So, after VulnDetect tells me, that updates are available, I have to perform multiple manual steps and update the app, like:
Go to the Windows Settings, click on "Windows Update" and then "Check for updates"
Start Microsoft Excel, click on "Account" and then on the button "Office Updates"
Start Microsoft Edge, go to the Settings, go to "Information about Edge" and wait for the result
For all other apps I have to download the installer of the new version manually and update the app.
It would be useful if the VulnDetect Agent
Shows me a list of available updates (only apps, which have updates, not all apps)
Shows also the available version number (recommended version)
Shows a button "Update" behind each available update
This button "Update" does the following:
Opens the Windows Updates with one click (or installs them with one click)
Executes the Microsoft Office Updater (I can send the command)
Starts Microsoft Edge and tells him to install updates
Opens the Microsoft Store with one click (or installs Updates with one click)
Downloads and executes the installer of all apps, that have an installer available
This way updating my system can be done with less mouse clicks.
