Enabling or disabling
Symantec Endpoint Protection
pop-up notifications that appear on Windows 8 clients

By default, pop-up notifications appear on the Windows 8 style user interface and the Windows 8 desktop for malware detections and other critical
Symantec Endpoint Protection
events.
The user can view the Windows desktop to see details about the event that produced the notification. The user might need to take an action such as re-download an app. In some cases, however, you might want to hide these pop-up notifications from users. You can enable or disable this type of notification in the
Symantec Endpoint Protection
configuration.
The Windows 8 configuration also includes settings to show or hide notifications.
Symantec Endpoint Protection
notifications only appear if Windows 8 is configured to show them. On the Windows 8 style user interface, the
Settings
pane or the
Change PC Settings
option let you show or hide app notifications. See the Windows 8 user documentation for more information.
