    How to turn off security "shield" icon?

    My new computer is not hooked up to the internet, I just want all the
    security stuff off. I've turned off the repeated questions but that
    shield in the start up at the bottom keeps coming on every two minutes
    telling me I need to check stuff. How can get it completely off the
    computer? Thanks for any help.

    Hi,

    Go to the control panel/security center, click on the line to "change the
    way security center alerts me" and disable notifications.
