Windows 7: Facebook trojan

Windows 8.1 Pro w/Media Center 64bit, Windows 7 HP 64bit

Would it be in the chest if it was blocked? Seems to me it would only be in the chest after it was on the system and then it was found.

Of course you're right, bad.
In the chest you usually find, what was missed in real time and has been discovered through a system scan.
If a threat is discovered real time the whole action simply is blocked. I get those pop ups several times a day.
Basically it's like with all AV programs, as long as you get a response, a potential threat has been detected.
That's why it is important, to read (and understand) those pop ups since they usually contain further information about the actions taken.
A very positive example (in my eyes) was the Commodo Firewall (before it got bundled in with an AV) where the pop up explicitly told you what has been done. Ending with the phrase "No further action necessary"
