    Context menu

If a virus scan or update task is running at the moment you open the context menu, its name as well as its progress status (percentage complete) is displayed in the context menu. When you select a menu item with the name of a task, you can switch to the main window with a report of current task run results.

To open the context menu,

roll over the application icon in the taskbar notification area with the pointer and right-click it with the mouse.

In the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system by default the application icon is hidden, but you can display it to access the application easier (see the operating system documentation).
