control panel-->security center (not add/remove programs)-->you can turn them off in there-->click the bottom link to the side to 'change the way security center alerts me'-->uncheck each box. That will disable the pop-ups notifying you that they are disabled.

There is no uncheck option. If I click on the green ON button, it only expands. The same happens if I click the down arrow.
