Remove Security Center Icon
There's just no other word for it. And if you're confident that your security settings are in order, you really don't need the nagging. To make Security Center disappear into the background, open its icon in Control Panel and click Change the way Security Center alerts me in the Tasks pane on the left. In the resulting dialog box, choose Don't notify me and don't display the icon (not recommended).

    If you just don't want this security center to run on your machine at all then you can disable it from Services. Following steps may help you to achieve this: 1. Open Control Panel. 2. Go to "Administrative Tools". 3. Double click "Services". This should open a new window on your screen. 4. Find the item "Security Center" in the first column of the list. 5. Double click this item it should open another small window on your screen. 6. Change the "Startup Type" to "Manual". 7. Click "OK" button. 8. Restart (don't just log off) your computer. This will completely disable the Security Center feature of XP. Please note that if you do so you won't receive any Automatic Updates of OS and any notifications for your Antivirus Software database status. You will need to maintain it manually. -- Ruturaaj.
