How to Stop Security Alert Pop Ups

Windows XP Service Pack 2 includes a firewall, automatic updates and antivirus notification pop-ups that display frequently when there is a problem with your computer. These security alert pop-ups display when anti-virus programs are uninstalled or disabled on your computer, when your system is not updated and when the firewall is disabled. Sometimes they can be a great nuisance because they display too frequently. If you donโ€™t want these frequent notifications, you can stop them easily from the Security Center.

Step

Double-click the "Security Center" icon and click "Change the way security center alerts me" on the left panel.
