Once VirusScan Enterprise is installed, the shield
icon appears in the Windows system tray if you configured this
feature during the installation process.
Note the following:
The icon changes when the on-access scanner detects access
protection violations. A red frame surrounds the icon for 30
minutes unless you reset it. For more information, see Access
violations and how VirusScan Enterprise responds
