I have my system set up with the windows fire wall on, automatic updates turned of and Norton antivirus running. Yet every time I turn on the system I get that annoying "you system may be at risk" balloon in the taskbar, how can I stop it?
How to disable balloon pop up for XPSP2 security http://www.worldstart.com/tips/tips... Click the balloon (Security Center) and go to the area where the Firewall set up is. That means open Security Center. Now look at the List under "Resources" on the Left hand side of the Security Center Window. Do you see the one option that says "Change the way Security Center alerts me" ? It's the last one in the list Now click it! You can uncheck the Balloon pop ups not only for your Firewall being off, But also if you have Automatic Updates turned off and Virus Protection alert having been set to off, too! If you uncheck all three boxes, no more "Balloon Thingy" each time you boot up.
