Automatic Updates turned off etc. It is very irritating to see such message every time, especially when you have intentionally turned off the security features and are already aware of it’s implications.Windows 7, thankfully, has a new feature called Action Center which gives you more control as to what messages and notifications you like to see in the system tray.
