    I use a blank screensaver. I notice that when I come back to the computer and move the mouse to display my desktop, the tray icon is orange and quickly changes back to blue. It is very quick and not noticeable unless you are looking at the tray icons.

    Hi,

    Gamer Mode, which I think is new in ESS 5. Would automatically activate when a program is identified as running in full-screen. If that is the reason for icon changing colour you would still be protected. Just scans and pop-ups would be prevented.
