What Is Intego Task Manager and What Does It Do?

Intego Task Manager is a part of the Intego software that helps keep users informed of the status for scheduled processes that are running on their Mac.

The Intego Task Manager window will appear and provide progress for any scheduled task, such as a malware scan with VirusBarrier or system backup with Personal Backup.

It is normal and expected behavior to see this window appear during any task that is set to run at a predetermined time or condition.
