    Control Panel>Security Center>Change the way security center alerts me. There you can disable Windows security alerts.

    If you want to disable all ballon popups, download Tweak UI. Once installed open and go Taskbar and start menu, then deselect "enable balloon tips".

    Looks like Speedy bet me too it. I'd still get Tweak UI anyway, its got lots of good tweaks for XP, and it's made by Micorsoft so its trustworthy.
