Disable Action Center Completely in Windows 7

Completely remove the annoying security center in windows 7 
(For those who do not know what it really is please be careful on what you're doing, because this is about your system securities unless you know what you're doing.)

Cons : In my opinion.. the program itself really notify you warning but if it's about basic update and severe security alert, I though that my Antivirus is enough to do such work in blink of eye. Basically, it eat memory to real-time monitoring and I suggest shut it down.

1. Open up Start Menu then type in action center [ENTER]

2. Click Change Action Center settings at the left sidebar option.

3. Untick all options.

4. Open up Start Menu, type in notification [ENTER]
Locate turn system icons on or off at the bottom left corner [Click it]
Change the option Action Center  from "ON" to "OFF"
5. Lastly, open Start Menu, key in services.msc [ENTER]
Locate Security Center then right click for properties, set it to Disable (Stop it first if it still running) You're Done.

Trouble? Watch video

  1. Save the line below to a text file and then rename it with a .bat extension "Disable Action Center Permanently.bat":

    REM Clear memory by disabling the real-time monitoring
    REM Get rid of basic update and severe security alerts, notifications and warnings

    REM Stop "Security Center" service and disable it
    sc stop wscsvc
    sc config wscsvc start= disabled

    REM Hide the Action Center icon (Turn off system icon)
    reg add HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer /v HideSCAHealth /t REG_DWORD /d 0x1 /f

    REM Restart Explorer so that the new settings will take effect
    taskkill /F /IM explorer.exe
    ping -n 1 -w 500 >nul
    start explorer.exe
