Reading Time: < 1minuteveryone knows, how M$ Windows updates the PC at stake. Besides that you know if updates are Disabled, the annoying picture showing a red like X under bottom left (Start menu panel) corner.

Thanksfully there is work around. To remove notification use:


Start (Menu) -> Control Panel -> Security Center -> Change the way Security center alerts me

Microsoft Windows XP SP3 Security Center - Change the way Security Center alerts me

No more update notifications. Enjoy 🙂
