Windows Security Alert

  bluto1 19:35 13 Sep 2007

As the notification area fills on boot up I now find the small Windows security shield and a message that 'Your Computer is at risk etc' all because I've not got Automatic Updates switched on. Is there any way of stopping this message appearing. All help appreciated.
