no it just means you wont get annoyed by the security center, but windows update will still tell you when there are updates.
Thank you! I was concerned that I wouldn't be notified of available updates if I turned that off. I don't understand the point of always having the Action Center saying I have 1 message:
Eliminate Action Center message about Windows Update?-action-center-message.jpg

just because I have my Windows Update set to notify me first:

Eliminate Action Center message about Windows Update?-windows-update-message.jpg

I'm happy to be able to turn that off and still be properly notified when there are new updates to download.

It's too bad the icon isn't hidden when there's no message(s).

Hi,
If you right click o the taskbar, click on propriety and you can choose if you don't want to see the icon, or just see if there is a message.

But that replaces the flag with an arrow for 'Show hidden icons'. It's silly, if I chose to hide an icon why would I want an icon to ask me to show it again...

So you have some access to hidden SysTray controls.

The best setting for Action Center is Hidden unless Notification, then tell it over time not to notify you about things you don't want to be bothered with.

However problem reports should be sent, received gladly and dealt with, as it is pro-active free tech support.

Agreed, but I'd rather see the flag over the arrow though. So I'll leave it as is with just Windows updates (I still get notified) and Back ups (I do my own) off.

Thanks for the support,

Not really fixed.

The original issue was that the systray icon seems to think that setting upgrade to a user decision is in some way inherently problematic.

It seems to be a legitimate option so why does it still flag up the systray icon as an issue, and can this SPECIFIC issue be resolved without resorting to more drastic action?

I`d love to know if anbody can REALLY solve this.

None-the-less, thanks for the other options :-)

Stoo.
