My request is simple:
Of course I want to know if a virus is detected. I certainly want to be warned if my virus database is out of date. But I couldn’t care less if it just updated when I’m in the middle of working on an important document.
Please remove the balloon when it successfully updates.
IMHO, the alerts should be for when something is going wrong. I don’t want to deal with other applications wanting my attention if all they’re gonna say is that everything is going well.
