Windows 7: Disable Action Center notifications

Disable Action Center notifications

I have disabled the Security Center, Windows Defender, and Windows Firewall. Each time I restart, the Action Center pops up and tells me I should correct this. How do I silence the Action Center.

Additionally, every time I start up, I get a message from Windows Defender telling me that it has been turned off. I want it off. How do I silence this message as well?

Thanks.

Open the Action Center, and below each section, there is a link to turn off notifications.

Thanks for the reply. I already did that before posting my question. That doesn't work.

That's strange. Clicking on the link, for my example here, Backup, doesn't stop the Action Center notification for it?

That has always worked for me.

Yes it does, but the Security seems to be an altogether different annoyance

How about un checking it from this option here?

That takes care of the Action Center ;-) thanks. What about silencing Windows Defender? I have it disabled via service.msc

Every time I start up I get this message:

Hmm, If I want to disable Win Defender, I don't change any of the settings for it's Service in Services. I just turn off Automatic scanning, and Real Time Protection from Win Defender options, and it turns it off. I don't get any notification to turn it back on.

Of course, you could un check Spyware and Related Protection as well as the Virus Protection in the Action Center settings as well.

But I have Avast installed, which has a Spyware module built in, so I guess it replaces the missing Win Defender notifications when it's turned off.


Why do you want these turned off anyway?

I would recommend leaving Defender on, too. It doesn't really bother anyone.
