There are many people who see the Windows 7 Action Center as a mere nuisance. However, the Windows 7 Action Center is a very beneficial tool at times. The best thing about the Windows 7 Action Center is that acts as a precursor to a potentially bigger problem since it simply delivers messages that would otherwise spam your screen.
The Windows 7 Action Center can tell you if your Antivirus is not working, been disable by some other program, or even if it is not up to date. It can also do the same things for your Firewall and anti-spyware software that may be installed on your Windows 7 computer. It also has the ability to keep you updated with messages from Windows 7 Update. In most cases, people will simply ignore these messages. This will leave your computer open to viruses that can be hard or impossible to remove without wiping your computer clean. For the basic Windows 7 PC user, this is a computer savior.
However, the advanced Windows 7 PC user may not want to use the Windows 7 Action Center at all. If that is the case then there are ways to disable Windows 7 Action Center icon at the bottom of the screen. You can do this by right clicking on the Windows 7 taskbar to choose properties. In the properties box, you would simply click on the “customize” button that is located in the Windows 7 notification area. This will allow you to turn icons on or off such as the Windows 7 Action Center or the Windows 7 Power Options if you have a laptop or if you are using a UPS battery on your Windows 7 desktop.
You should remember that the Windows 7 Action Center is merely a messaging tunnel for the errors on your Windows 7 PC. Therefore, if you disable Windows 7 Action Center then problems may be able to sneak up on you in a condition where they can no longer be easily removed.
In any event, you can enable Windows 7 Action Center anytime you want to by following the same steps.
