Security Reports

Here you can see what threats have been found on your computer. Select a Period to focus on the threats found during the past week, month, 3 months, 6 months or year.

  • Threat Types
    This pie chart compares the computer viruses, suspected spyware, and Web threats discovered during the selected period. Seeing which type appears the most can help you take steps to reduce your risk. If you see a lot of Web threats, for example, you might want to try visiting different websites in the future.

  • Threat History
    This line graph shows you the threats found over the selected period of time. Knowing when you ran into the most threats can help you identify risky habits. If you see a spike on a Friday, for example, you can check your browser history to see which websites you visited that day. To investigate further, click View detailed logs in the bottom right corner of the window to see lists of threats found.
     
    Marked Checkbox Mark or clear the checkboxes at the bottom of the chart to display or hide different types of threats.

Marked Checkbox Mark the Show this report monthly checkbox if you want to get a reminder at the beginning of each month to check the security report.

If your version of the security software includes Parental Controls, then you will find a Parental Controls tab on the left side of the window. Clicking this tab displays lists of the website categories and specific websites blocked most often, as well as the total number of websites blocked during the last month. If you have customized the Parental Controls for different Microsoft Windows User Accounts, then you can check the results for each one by selecting a name from the Account dropdown list in the top right corner of the window.

If your version of the security software includes the System Tuner, then you will find a System Tuner tab on the left side of the window. Clicking this tab displays when you last tuned up the computer, as well as a summary of the changes made at that time.

You must activate the Parental Controls and System Tuner before seeing any results on the related tabs.
