Viewing the protection status

To show your computer's overall protection status, the system tray icon and the main interface change colors, as follows:

  • Green. Your computer is secure.

  • Yellow. One or more messages require your attention.

  • Red. One or more critical items require your intervention.

To view details about the current status and settings, open the main interface by right-clicking on the Webroot icon TrayClean.jpg from the system tray menu, then View Status. (For Endpoint editions, click Open.)


If your system is secure, the main interface is green and displays a message that you are protected.


If an issue requires your attention, the main interface describes the problem.


SecureAnywhere also opens an alert in the system tray.


SecureAnywhere takes the appropriate action to quarantine the items. It may also prompt you to take action yourself (see Running an immediate scan and Managing quarantined items).
