12. Turn Off Security Center Alerts
The Security Center alerts you when a security
problem occurs. This can be anything from an anti
virus application that doesn't have updated
definitions to the disabling of UAC.
Either way these alerts are important and are not to
be dismissed lightly.
Sometimes, however, having a security center flag
popping up every now and again can become a
nuisance, particularly if the problem isn't serious.
In this instance you can, if you wish, set the
security alerts so that they don't notify you when a
problem occurs (not recommended).
To change the way Security Center notifies you
of a problem proceed as follows:
1/ Click the Start Button.
2/ From the Start Menu click
3/ In Control panel click the
Security Center Icon.
4/ On the Left hand side of the
Security Center window you will see
a list of options.
5/ Click on the Change the way Security
Center alerts me option.
6/ Another box will now appear marked 'Do
you want to be notified of Security issues?'
7/ Look down the list of options and click on
Don't notify me and don't display the icon
(not recommended) option.
8/ The box will now close and Security center
will no longer notify you of any Security issues.
9/ To re-enable notification
click on the 'Yes notify me and display the
icon (recommended) option.
