- Required computer restarts – When this box is checked a notification is displayed when a computer restart is required (e.g. after certain program version updates). When unchecked, restarts are performed automatically. Default is enabled.
- Don't show notifications in Silent Mode – Prevents interruptions in resource intensive games by ensuring that notifications are not displayed if Silent Mode is active. Default is enabled.

You configure email notifications at any time by clicking the Email notifications 'Edit' button.
- Send an email on selected events – Select this option to enable email notifications to be automatically sent on the selected events in the events list. If you select a top level node only, like 'Surf Protection', you will only receive Disabled/Enabled notifications for that specific guard.

If authentication is required, select the option SMTP Authentication, choose your desired setting ([Without TLS], [Implicit TLS), [Require TLS], or [Explicit TLS]) from the adjacent drop down menu and then enter your username and password into the appropriate fields.
