Pop-up on boot up.

Every time I boot up I get an info bubble from the notification tray that "Your computer is at risk ...etc " and all because I`ve switched off Automatic updates. Is there a way of getting rid of this without switching on Auto updates? Thanks in advance

There must be a good reason to switch off Automatic Updates....:-)

Best way to get rid of the "bubble" is to enable Auto Updates again, but this time on the basis of Notify Me Of Updates but Don't Install Them.

You can then choose via Custom, which updates you might require and others you don't.

Closing the panel will give you the option not to be notified again of declined updates until the next updates release (usually the second Tuesday of each month).

Control Panel > Security Centre, click "Change the way Security Centre alerts me" and untick all three Alert options "Firewall", "Automatic Updates" and "Virus Protection" and Click OK.

But as Stuartli has hinted at....... turn ON automatic updates.

My PC has only 800MHz CPU, 512 MBs RAM and 80 GB HDD and I cannot increase any of these as the mobo is old, probably about 8 years old, so rather than use up my resources unnecessarily I chose to switch off Auto updates. I do remember to check at least once a week.
Thanks for the help, I`ve used your suggestion MAJ
