Alerts and notifications
The Alerts and notifications section under User interface allows you to configure how threat alerts and system notifications (for example, successful update messages) are handled by ESET Endpoint Antivirus. You can also set the display time and transparency of system tray notifications (this applies only on systems that support system tray notifications).
Disabling Display alerts will cancel all alert windows, and is only suitable for a limited amount of specific situations. For most users, we recommend that this option be left in its default setting (enabled).
Notifications on the Desktop and balloon tips are informative only, and do not require user interaction. They are displayed in the notification area at the bottom right corner of the screen. To activate Desktop notifications, select Display notifications on desktop. Turn the Do not display notifications when running applications in full screen mode switch on to suppress all non-interactive notifications. More detailed options, such as notification display time and window transparency can be modified below.
The Minimum verbosity of events to display drop-down menu allows you to select the severity level of alerts and notifications to be displayed. The following options are available:
The last feature in this section allows you to configure the destination of notifications in a multi-user environment. The On multi-user systems, display notifications on the screen of this user field specifies which user will receive system and other notifications on systems allowing multiple users to connect at the same time. Normally, this would be a system or network administrator. This option is especially useful for terminal servers, provided that all system notifications are sent to the administrator.
To close pop-up windows automatically after a certain period of time, select Close message boxes automatically. If they are not closed manually, alert windows are automatically closed after the specified time period elapses.
Confirmation messages – Shows you a list of confirmation messages that you can select to display or not to display.
