Dealing with alerts and errors

If a virus or spyware, a suspicious item, an adware or other potentially unwanted application is detected, alert icons are displayed on the Status tab in the Endpoints view.

For a key to the alert icons, see What do the alert icons mean? The other topics in this section give advice on dealing with alerts.

Note: Warnings are also displayed in the console if software is disabled or out of date. For information on this, see Checking whether your network is protected.

For more details about an alert, for example, the name of the detected item, click the Alert and Error Details tab.

For information about update manager alerts, see Monitoring the update manager.
