Vista: Hide Windows Security Center Icon from System Tray

Posted August 5, 2007 by MickeyMouse in Microsoft Vista

Call me crazy but I run Vista without all the security stuff it wants. I don’t want that security icon showing up all the time. Here is how to disable the windows security icon.

Firewall? Virus protection? Are you kidding me? If I wanted somebody telling me how to run my bloody vista system, I would have my mother as my admin.

Here is how to hide the stupid security icon on a vista box.

1. Double-click the security icon. You can also right-click and select Open Security Center


2. Click Change the way Security Center alerts me.


3. Select how you want the security icon to be displayed. If you don’t want it displayed at all (yeah!), then selected the one not recommended. 🙂
