    windows secruity alerts

    i just got my new computer and me and my dad been installing all the drviers and stuff. when i had to go work he installed somethings. and one of them was that stupid microsoft anti spyware thing which i dont want.

    i think its why this windows secruity alert thing likes to bug me to. it never came up or anything until i installed service pack2.

    how do i uninstall it? i cant find anything of how to do it

    Like most bad Microsoft software, you can't uninstall these additional "features", unless they've been ruled against by the European Commission and you're prepared to pay full price for it.

    If you go to the Security Center in Control Panel you should be able to disable alerts.

    i figured out how to disable it. but i just hate that it exists. i try to take everything microsoft off my computer that i can and resort to 3rd party program versions of the same thing. becuase theyre usauly safer, more stable, and dont make your computer run like a slug

    thanks

    It's a windows service so you might try disabling it there.
