xp security centre icon

I have disconnected the XP firewall as it interferes with accessing my LAN. I have a hardware firewall in my router and I also run Blackice so security is not my issue. But how can I stop the pop-up box and the icon that appears each time that I boot up that informs me my system might be unsafe unless I re-connect the XP Firewall. Any suggestions appreciated.

Hi, I too have a hardware firewall, but I also have Kerio Free Edition, click here - keeps XP firewall at bay.

Just go to the "Security Center" and click onto the "Change The Way Security Center Alerts Me" and just untick the firewall option...

Doing this, stops that anoying icon and message balloon from the "System Tray" when you log into your machine

Start, Run. Type in


and click OK. Scroll down to Security Center and double click it. Click the Stop button and change the Startup behaviour to Never.

Open up the security centre and click on change the way security centre alerts me.

In the window that opens remove the ticks from the boxes and click ok.
