Is there an easy way to clean up old software that was previously inventoried but no longer exists - besides manually one at at time? I'm mostly interested in deleting software that had an installer file attached to it. Perhaps there's an easy way to target those specifically.
Answer Summary:
Green check marks in the second column of the Software Inventory list indicate that a file has been attached to that software item. These software items appear at the top of the list by default, but clicking on that column header twice will sort them with attachments on top. KACE is apparently working on improving this process, per this uservoice post which has been labeled as 'Started': http://kace.uservoice.com/forums/82699-k1000/suggestions/1571015-software-inventory-aging

Software Inventory items can be deleted 150 at a time, but there is no better way to remove them at this time.
