How to Turn Off System and Security Messages in Windows 7

image Windows 7 is your new friend and she’s a very chatty friend. By that I mean that Windows 7 wants to talk to you a lot and let you know what’s going on.

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.
