Question

Locked

Notifications

By dogknees ·
I'm trying to find out how to stop Windows 7 notifying me of an unknown USB device. I've gone into Notification Area Icons and set them to hide both icon and notifications, but it just keeps turning it back on.

Does anyone know how to tell it to cease and desist? Permanently?

Thanks

try turning off UAC

by PurpleSkys In reply to Notifications

in control panel. I have all my notifications turned off that way. Some folks aren't necessarily comfortable doing that, but you may be.http://windows.microsoft.com/en-CA/windows-vista/Turn-User-Account-Control-on-or-off

Does that affect the notification area icons? I thought it only disabled the UAC warnings about making changes.

I'll try it tonight anyway, and see how it goes.

Thanks

That Did It

by dogknees In reply to Notifications

Turning off the warnings on the hub has stopped it bugging me. At least for a few days.

Thanks
