    If you happen to have your firewall or windows update turned off you get a nice little annoying red shield in your toolbar courtesy of M$ . Any options to get rid of this thing other then the hide inactive icons option. I guess its kind of cool to see since SP2 is so new, but really- if I want to turn those things off I'll go into my control panel. I'm looking for that magical registry edit to say goodbye to the little red shield with the x on it.

    It's pretty easy, actually. [​IMG]
    Just open up Security Center, and select the "Change the way Security Center alerts me" option under "Resources" on the left. Uncheck what you don't want to bothered about, and that's it.
