Remove Pop-up Virus Alerts On Email - Outlook

Recommended Posts


Is there a way to remove the pop-up alerts when a virus is encountered in an email in Outlook? I see controls to control the handling of the actual email, but see nothing regarding the controlling of the pop-up alert.

I don't see how to turn off displaying threat alerts completely either.

Refer to this Eset on-line help article: https://help.eset.com/eis/13/en-US/idh_config_alert.html . Disabling "Interactive alerts" however is not recommend since Eset will become completely silent in regards to the following:


• Threat found

• Address has been blocked

• Product not activated

• Update is available

• Update information is not consistent

• Troubleshooting for "Modules update failed" message

• 'File corrupt' or 'Failed to rename file'

• Website certificate revoked

• Network threat blocked

Ok - thanks. No, I don't want to turn off all alerts. I did reduce the timeout to 10 seconds (the minimum). I wish it could be set to zero. I usually get one or more alerts every time Outlook pulls email from the 6 email accounts it checks every 3 minutes. Driving me crazy.

Thanks for pointing me to the correct area in the UI.
