Norton Security 22.5.4.24 -- gray taskbar icon?

I'm sure this isn't an issue; but what's up with the "gray taskbar icon" in Norton Security 22.5.4.24?  I'm abso-posi-lutely sure it was a *yellow* icon before the last update.  (The answer to this may lie elsewhere on this Forum; but I couldn't find that answer.)  Does anyone know how and/or why that happened??  Or has my Norton Security gone and went HAL-9000 on me??    Thanks!

Hello Saganized

You can try  changing Boot Time Protection to Aggressive to see if having it load up earlier will alter the color of the icon. Trying another restart can probably fix the problem also.

Thanks.

Yeah it's just silent mode, it turns on whenever you have a fullscreen application or 3d application running, for example a game.

It does this so it doesn't do updates or intensive scans in the background when you play applications like games so it doesnt effect the performance of the application you're running.

But don't worry the firewall is still active and will still be actively protecting your computer against threats.
