    WSC is an integral - and important - part of Windows XP and cannot be turned
    off. Why would you want to?

    Because you install better software than that which comes with XP.

    Hi

    Try this:

    Go to Control Panel>Security Center and click on 'Change the way Security
    Center alerts me'. Change the appropriate options in there.

    You display a basic misunderstanding of Windows Security Center (WSC).

    WSC - an integral part of Windows which cannot be disabled - monitors the
    status of your security software. For example, if you have chosen to install
    a third party firewall, as I have, WSC will monitor the status of that
    firewall. This is true so long as the firewall is compatible with WSC, as
    all the major firewalls are by now.

    Similarly, WSC monitors the status of your antivirus software and the
    availability of updates from Windows Update. For example, I have WSC setup
    to notify me when a security update is available at Windows Update.

    Since I keep my firewall and antivirus software up to date, the only contact
    I ever have with WSC is when the little yellow icon shows up in my tray to
    let me know that a security update is available. If not for that, I could
    easily forget that WSC even exists.

    OK - how about this. Some people DO NOT want the security center on their
    systems. Period. Remove it!!!

    Remove SP2.

    Note: sooner, or later, you will need to reinstall it as Microsoft will make
    it mandatory to have it installed to get further updates.

    I have a slow dial-up connection so I deactivated the automatic update
    aspect, which also removed that gawdawful icon from the system tray.
    Got an error notification the next time I went to windowsupdate
    (contained three DDDs and ended with 18). The website advice didn't
    work, but everything went fine once I went into the Security Center
    and temporarily reactivated the function.

    I really wouldn't remove Security Center, but it's easy enough to
    render it inoperative. Go into Control Panel \SC and look for "change
    the way Security Center alerts me".
