Show VulnDetect Icon in the System Tray
When I installed the VulnDetect Agent on my computer I did not see anything about the agent (no visual indicator that the VulnDetect Agent is installed and running like a desktop icon or a icon in the system tray).
So please show a VulnDetect icon in the System Tray of Windows.
This icon is required for several other suggestions, like:
Was any progress made on this feature?
Yes, and with changes of colour depending on status.
One thing I liked about PSI, was the system score. A nice big green 100% when all patched. This was a great feature for the non-techies that I help, prompting them to take action when a program had a update required...

Have a colored ICON in the taskbar that reflects status, ie green is 100% secure, yellow/red security needs attention, grey scan is needed
Suggested by @Alex-Connolly
tray icon that has different states such as "scan not performed in xx days", "programs with zero-day vulnerability detected", "programs with feature updates / bug fixes available"
Suggested by @CTaylor
Please show the scan status in the VulnDetect system tray icon:
- If a scan is currently in progress animate the icon
- If I move the mouse over the icon a tooltip text shows me either "Scan in progress" or "Next scan in …"
- In an error occurred while scanning (like no internet connection) show a red "x" over the VulnDetect icon and show a balloon text with the error message
This way the user gets information about the scan status and this is important for a good usability.
