MANAGING APPLICATION NOTIFICATIONS
Notifications that appear in the taskbar notification area inform you of application events that require your attention.
Depending on how critical the event is, you may receive the following types of notifications:
Critical notifications inform you of events that have critical importance for the computer's security, such as
detection of a malicious object or dangerous activity in the operating system. Windows used for critical
notifications and pop-up messages are red.
Important notifications inform you of events that are potentially important for the computer's security, such as
detection of a probably infected object or suspicious activity in the operating system. Windows used for
important notifications and pop-up messages are yellow.
Information notifications inform you of events that do not have critical importance for the computer's security.
Windows used for information notifications and pop-up messages are green.
If a notification is displayed on the screen, you should select one of the options that are suggested in the notification. The
optimal option is the one recommended as the default by Kaspersky Lab experts. A notification can be closed
automatically when the computer is restarted, when Kaspersky Internet Security is quit, or in Connected Standby mode
in Windows 8. Application Control notifications are closed automatically after 500 seconds. Notifications about the startup
of applications are closed after 1 hour. When a notification is closed automatically, Kaspersky Internet Security performs
the default recommended action.
Notifications are not displayed during the first hour of application operation if you have purchased a computer with
Kaspersky Internet Security preinstalled (OEM distribution). The application processes detected objects in accordance
with the recommended actions. The results of this processing are saved in a report.
