Discussion in 'ProcessGuard' started by figtrees, Mar 17, 2004.
The PG icon in the systray is sometimes red and sometimes blue. What do these colors mean?
Gray with X means Process Guard is NOT active
Red means Process Guard is active and protecting
Blue means that Process Guard is active, protecting, but has logged an event block. This is when you want to look at the log and see what program is being blocked.
Thank you for your reply. As to my going to the log to look, wouldn't it be better if a window automatically opened to show me the entry which caused the icon to change to blue?
Whilst it does sound like a good idea, the Window would pop up too many times and be an "annoyance" to the user. The icon changing blue doesnt necessarily mean there is something wrong on your system, it just means something has been logged, which could be important, or could be benign.
Jason, maybe there would be a way to (temporarily) highlight the line that was added first after ProcessGuard lost focus. So the window doesn't pop up, but the user doesn't have a hard time finding the right "entry-point" when he/she opens it...?
Hmm. So the new topic in this thread is logs. Alright. The log for IMSecure is an example of how NOT to make a log while the logs for Avast anti-virus are at the other end of the bell curve, yes?
