This level of transparency sometimes makes you think that working with previous versions of Windows was like working with a Black Box 🙂
However, you might not always want to deal with all the messages that Windows 7 wants to give you. There are a number of ways that Windows 7 can share system and security messages with you, such as tray balloons and tray icons. You might want some applications to give you notifications but not others.
The good news is that you can have it the way you like. Configure the types of notifications you get and what applications give you notifications. Have it your way.
