How-To: Get Rid of the Annoying Security Notifications in Windows

This can be done both in Windows XP and Vista without to much work. It’s very simple and easy to do, just follow this few, quick steps.

Windows XP:
1. Go to Control Panel from the Start Menu.
2. Click on the Security Center Icon.
3. In the new window you will see the ‘Resource Section’ on the right.
4. Select “Change the way Security Center Alerts Me.”
5. Choose from the choices that best fits you.


If you don’t want to be notified that’s fine, but I would at least keep the icon because you can forget about having your firewall disabled, which leaves your computer a target to hackers. It’s the same process for Vista, you just have to go to the Security Center and it will say it at the bottom “Change the way Security Center Alerts Me.”
