Vista Security Centre

  tonyjon 20:39 20 Aug 2007


Can not get rid of the Security Centre 'Shield' on the notification bar, when selected, security centre is shown as turned off with on option to 'turn on now', when selected message pops up 'The Security Centre Service cannot be started'.

I am running the BTYahoo Online protection package (Norton) so I assume that i am fairly well protected, but the ever present messages re the Widows Security Centre niggle a bit.

Can it be turned off?

You can tell it to not notify you , Open Security Centre and on the right hand side you'll see tesxt saying " Change the way Security Centre alerts me " , in there you will find the option to turn off alerts .
