filter directory paths out of search results in MOSS 2007

I am finishing up adding a custom scope to our MOSS 2007 intranet installation and have a couple more things to address - one of them being the presence of directory paths in the search results.

For instance, if I run a search for 'annual', the first set of results are lists of directory paths.  For example:


Then I get file results:

Is there a way to filter the results to prevent the directory paths from showing up as a search result?

Not sure what pertinent info you need for this, but we are using MOSS 2007 as an intranet, two default scopes (people, all sites) and one custom scope to search our shared network drive.

Thanks in advance for your help!

You can always go to central admin -> Shared service provider -> Search admin and then to content source and modify it to remove this filter and exclude the folders. Let me know if that works, I dont have a 2007 server currently as been on 2010 however if you still need help then i will look up for 2007 items in office tomorrow
