The Windows 7 Action Center is responsible for letting you know what’s going on behind the scenes, but it can get a little invasive at times. I mean, how much work is one expected to get done if there are little windows constantly popping up in the corner to let you know about various security and maintenance happenings?
So let’s turn ‘em off!
Hit Start, and in the Search Box type Action Center. Hit Enter or click on the result that appears at the top of your Start Menu.
From here, click Change Action Center Settings.
In the windows shown below you can choose which security and maintenance message appear. Just un-check anything you don’t deem necessary and click OK.
If you ever want to turn them back on, just repeat the steps and re-check the items!
