SecureAPlus makes it easy to locate a file that has either been blocked by Application Whitelisting or detected by any of the engines from Universal AV.

Knowing the location of the file will help users make an informed decision on whether the file is trustworthy or a threat on top of the diagnosis provided by the Universal AV engines.

This feature is also useful when consulting 2nd opinion scanners that need the file to be uploaded for scanning.

From the Application Whitelisting Notification

The filename of the file that is trying to launch and is currently blocked by SecureAPlus can be found in the first section of the notification.

Hovering the mouse on the filename will briefly show the location of the file. Clicking on it will open a Windows Explorer window of where the file is located.

Click on More Info to navigate directly to the location of the process.

Right-clicking the process name will display an option to either open the file location or open the taskbar to check the process in the task manager.

1. Open the file location

2. Or open Task Manager

From the SecureAPlus AntiVirus Notification

When a threat is detected by any of the engines, there are two ways to locate the file.

The most obvious method is immediately visible under the File Location section. If the file path is too long to display fully, hovering the mouse will reveal the full file path. While clicking on the file path will open a Windows Explorer window where the file is located.

Similar to the Application Whitelisting Notification, the filename of the threat detected is also displayed in the first section of the notification. Hovering the mouse on the filename will briefly show the location of the file. Clicking on it will also open a Windows Explorer window of where the file is located.

Universal AV & On-Demand Virus Scanner Windows

When an on-demand scan or an automatic full system scan detects one or multiple files, the file path is immediately visible on each entry on the list. Clicking on this will open a Windows Explorer window where the file is located.

Furthermore, when each entry is expanded it will show the detailed diagnosis of the engines which detected the file as a threat. Clicking on any area of this box will also open a Windows Explorer window where the file is located.
