I would like to put in a feature request to allow the symantec admins to insert our own company logo or the symantec altiris logo in the notification restart box. When I install patches and the altiris box appears on our end users machines the box just has text. I would like to insert out company or symantec logo in the notification box. Our end users sometimes think its a virus or spam that got installed and is asking for a restart.  Can this please PLEASE be added to the notification box? 

Thank you!

I second this. A messagebox always should have the following options:

  1. A descriptive text that it is trying to convey
  2. A valid caption (mostly it would be the application name)
  3. Appropriate messagebox buttons (OK/Cancel can be cryptic at times and Yes/No may be more friendly)
  4. A valid message type indication (like exclamation symbol, error etc)

I am quoting these points with respect to MessageBox displays in application which can be construed as a common guideline for any information that is being conveyed by the application. Besides the instiled confidence to the user it also helps in accessibility of the the application. When you have a correct set of parameters the user also gets the appropriately configured audio/visual effects on his system to be triggered off.
