Windows 7 Security Center Alerts

I have unchecked everything from security center(like AV, firewall etc.) but I wanted to get rid of the security center icon from system tray altogether so I disabled it in services.msc. Now it gives me alert that security center is disabled. Is there any way to get around this and get rid of the security center from systemtray altogether?

Hello DFS,

Do you mean the Action Center instead? This is the replacement of Security Center from Vista in Windows 7. If so, then unchecking all of the notification messages in the tutorial below should stop it for you.

Action Center - Change Message Settings

You can also turn off the Action Center icon in System Icons.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
