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 experts. A notification can be closed automatically when the computer is restarted, when Kaspersky Small Office Security is quit, or in Connected Standby mode in Windows 8. Intrusion Prevention notifications are closed automatically after 500 seconds. Notifications about the startup of the application are closed after 1 hour. When a notification is closed automatically, Kaspersky Small Office Security performs the default recommended action.
