    Hi,

    I have installed SP2 and have turned-off the Automatic Updates on my laptop
    because I prefer to do it on my own schedule.

    The "Your Computer May Be At Risk" balloon pops-up constantly and quite
    frankly, it's getting very annoying. (Thankfully, this doesn't happen on my
    other computer, for some reason)

    Any tips on disabling or slowing down this pop-up? Besides the obvious of
    enabling the auto update, of course! ; )

    Thanks!

    Set it for a time that the laptop will be turned off.
    Or, set it to just notify you when an update is available.
