Task Bar Icon

Recommended Posts

I am not very pleased with the look of Immunet Protect task bar icon, one thing I really like about Microsoft security Essentials is that it actually looks like a security icon.

Immunet Protect just looks like a paper cut out of your logo just like any other security programs.

For example Panda cloud is a panda head, what does that has to do with security?

 

I thought possibly you guys could have a shield, a wall, or maybe a little net icon to represent your network community innovation, and when updating or scanning you have a little activity indicator in the corner, rather then a laggy animation.

 

I don't know, but what ever you choose, I'll be happy with it.

Icon snap shots of Microsoft Security Essentials and Immunet Protect's icons for easy comparing.

This subject has been touched on in previous posts in this section of the forum. I understand what your saying though. It would be nice if the icon changed somehow when a scheduled scan is taking place for instance or when IMP is connecting to and/or pulling down new definitions from the cloud . As far as the appearance of the icon itself, I could think of worse designs they could have chosen for it. Personally I think it's kind of cool looking.

I know the subject of Immunet's task bar icon has been brought up, but not about it's appearance.

 

Haha, someone likes it, I just feel it should be more security themed. I have no icons on my task bar but Immunet Protect's and Windows Security Essential's icons and they don't really look nice sitting next to each other. Not that it is Immunet's problem, just thought I should bring it up.

I too think the icon could be a little bit more intuitive. I don't mind the look, but it would be nice if it swapped colour to signify an issue or status. Like it went amber if it was disconnected from the cloud. Purple if it was out of date, Green if it was scanning etc.

Also, I would be most impressed if the right click task bar icon featured an 'Update' option, rather than having to bring up the full console to check for updates.

Although this is a cloud based application, so we shouldn't really be getting 'periodic' updates to the virus database in this way anyway as they should be streamed. But more for checking product updates I suppose.

 

I dunno, thinking aloud, or rather quietly with a keyboard.... Been a long day.
