Details
Public
In Windows 8 and 2012, the entire Desktop works like an application. In this case, visibility of WFBS pop-ups becomes limited.
To make sure that you see important notifications, WFBS uses toast notifications in Windows 8. 
A toast notification is a rectangular message box that appears on the upper-right corner of Windows 8 when specific events are triggered. This message lingers for 7 seconds. When you click a toast notification, the Desktop will open. It serves as prompt when actions are required from the user as shown below:
Toast Notification
WFBS sends toast notifications through the PccNTMon process when it wants to do the following:
  • Client wants to pop up a threat dialog on desktop to show detections:
    • Virus detection
    • Spyware detection
    • Web Reputation detection
    • Behavior Monitoring detection
    • Device Access Control detection
    • Firewall detection
