Get rid of action center window

I've got rid of all the display messages from the action centre options and still the window is in the bottom right corner of my screen all the time saying that i can use it to view recent messages about my computers status etc. How do i get rid of it completely?

Go to taskbar properties, then down to "Notification area" click on "Customize. . ." on the next window go to "Action Center" and click on "Hide Icon and Notifications". Now click "Ok", the "Apply" and your done.

Brute force works just fine for this one.

Get the "Take Ownership" .reg file from here - Take Ownership Shortcut
right click and take ownership of c:\windows\system32\ActionCenter.DLL and c:\windows\system32\ActionCenterCPL.DLL

rename those files .bak and reboot.
