Emsisoft is now ready to protect your computer from viruses, trojan, bots, rootkits, worms, spyware and all other sorts of malicious software. Click the Finish installation button and the program will then be loaded.
You can verify that real-time protection is active by looking for the Emsisoft shield icon next to your system clock in the taskbar. A single left click on the shield icon opens the main interface for making configuration changes.
The shield icon changes color to provide a simple indication of your current protection status, at a glance:
- Green – The solid green shield indicates that all protection features are enabled and signatures are up-to-date.
- Orange – The orange shield with an "i" over it indicates that either one or more protection features are disabled or signatures are out-of-date.
- Red – The red shield with a "x" over it indicates that all protection features are disabled.
When an update is in progress, the shield icon flashes with a white overlay over the color of the current protection status.
