Immediately after Kaspersky Security is started on the protected virtual machine, the application icon appears in the Microsoft Windows taskbar notification area.

The icon serves the following purposes:

  • It indicates application activity.
  • It acts as a shortcut to the context menu and main window of the application.

The application icon reflects the status of virtual machine protection and shows the operations that the application is currently performing:

  • The protection enabled icon signifies that all protection components of the application are enabled.
  • The restart required icon signifies that important events that require your attention have occurred in the operation of Kaspersky Security. For example, File Anti-Virus is disabled or the databases and application modules are out of date.
  • The error occurred icon signifies that critical events have occurred in the operation of Kaspersky Security. For example, a function failure of one or more components, or corruption of the application databases or modules.

The context menu of the application icon contains the following items:

  • Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.2 Light Agent. Opens the Protection and Control tab in the main application window. The Protection and Control tab lets you adjust the operation of application components and tasks, and view the statistics of processed files and detected threats.
  • Settings. Opens the Settings tab in the main application window. The Settings tab lets you change the default application settings.
  • Pause protection and control / Resume protection and control. Temporarily pauses / resumes the operation of protection and control components. This context menu item does not affect the update task and scan tasks, being only available when the Kaspersky Security Center policy is disabled.
  • Disable policy / Enable policy. Disables / enables the Kaspersky Security Center policy. This item is unavailable when Kaspersky Security operates under a Kaspersky Security Center policy, and a password for disabling the policy has been set in the policy settings.
  • About. This item opens an information window with application details.
  • Exit. This item quits Kaspersky Security. Clicking this context menu item causes the application to be unloaded from the virtual machine RAM.

You can open the context menu of the application icon by resting the pointer on the application icon in the taskbar notification area of Microsoft Windows and right-clicking.
