When multiple access attempts are blocked the process that's been blocked will be shown in the popup. together with the number blocked attempts.

Why aren't you using the built-in Windows 10 toast notifications?

We decided to not use the built-in Windows 10 toast notifications because:

  1. MIG blocking notifications should remain permanently on the screen until closed.
  2. We need to support earlier Windows Operating systems. 
  3. Most importantly, we can add additional functionality to the notification Window such as menus and buttons for directly interacting with MIG settings.
