Windows XP SP2 includes a security center which makes sure that your Windows system is up-to-date and a firewall and an antivirus is running all the time to ensure security. But the annoying things is that when we opt not a run an antivirus or a firewall for sometime or we don’t want Windows update to clog our Internet connection, we turn them off. The security warning comes into play and keeps on annoying us in the middle of our work. Here is how you can turn off those annoying warning balloons.
Go to Start –>
Control Panel –> Security Center.
In the left side menu, click on “Change the way Security Center alerts me”. You have three options there. You can uncheck any of them to stop Windows alerting you about their status. For example, if you are not connected to a network and you want your firewall to be turned off, you can uncheck the Firewall check box to stop Windows alerting about the firewall not being run.
