AppGuard Solo contains several types of protection:
AppGuard Solo’s User Interface consists of the main user interface, log viewer and tray icon/menu. These interfaces are described in the sections to follow.
The install places an icon on the system tray at the bottom right of the screen. If the icon is not visible, click on the up arrow to Show hidden icons. You can also then click the Customize button to make the AppGuard Solo icon always visible.
The AppGuard Solo user interface provides the current status of the AppGuard Solo protection level. AppGuard Solo allows you to change the protection level for installations, updates and other functions as required. The image below is the main AppGuard Solo user interface which describes the basic Protection Levels. Click on the AppGuard Solo icon to open the window.
Protected: All trusted applications are protected. If AppGuard Solo interferes with an application or if you want to access a private folder with an application, you can add protection for the application according to the instructions below while leaving the protection level at the Protected setting. Setting the protection level to Protected introduces minimal risk while providing the most protection.
Allow Installs: Use this level only when installing or updating software. Note that there is a default time of 20 minutes for this level of protection. This period can be changed in the Customize sections described below.
Off: Chose this option to temporarily turn AppGuard Solo protection completely off. Note: There is a default time of 20 minutes for this level of protection. This period can be changed in the “Customize” sections described below.
