Using the System Tray

Hello. You have arrived at an outdated topic. Please click this link to be redirected to the updated PC User Guide.

The Webroot icon in the system tray, which is on the toolbar along the bottom of your screen, provides quick access to some common SecureAnywhere tasks. By right-clicking on the Webroot icon, you can view the system tray menu. This menu displays different selections, depending on the SecureAnywhere edition you purchased.


Note: If the icon does not appear in the system tray, open the main interface, select Advanced Settings > Install Settings, and select the Show a system tray icon checkbox.
If a threat is detected, SecureAnywhere may also open an alert in the system tray. SecureAnywhere takes the appropriate action to quarantine the items. It may also prompt you to take action yourself. 

For more information, see Running Scans and Managing Quarantined Items.
