Is there a way to get Live map to exclude the caches I have found that now are archived? Together with 161m circles it would be a great tool...

If I am not mistake the same question about archived was asked in another post and the answer was that the feature was removed on request from groundspeek.

In this one?
https://project-gc.com/qa/?qa=14602/how-do-i-display-archived-caches-on-livemap

What I am trying to figure out is if all my finds are included in Live-Map or if those archived are excluded. In this case I would like them to be excluded.

No. Live map does not show archived caches. Not found nor not found. If you want to plot all the caches (or these you have found), use Map Compare tool, which is more versatile for this task:

The problems I encounter with Map Compare vs Live Map is that you need to know where the caches area you are interested in are located. If the cache is near a border of a region, or when a series of caches spread over two regions, it is not easy to view those caches in the series together with nearby caches.
By clicking on the icon next to the "Cache location" filter, you can expand the selectors and select multiple countries, states or counties at once. This should solve your problem, if it is the only one you have.
