Turn off the Solve PC Issues notification in Windows 7

Change visibility of actions

Instead of completely disabling this service, you can simply change the visibility of
the notifications. This will mean the service is still available, only it's not made
visible to users. To make this change, follow these steps:

1. Click on the Flag icon from your notification area in the right corner. (Figure A).

2. Click the Open Action Center.

3. From within the Action Center click Change User Account Control Settings.

4. From the User Account Control Settings pull the toggle all the way down to Never
Notify.

5. Click OK.

Now the user will receive no notifications of warnings or issues.

Figure A

If you click on the Flag you will see all of the current issues that are occurring on
your machine. This behavior can clue users into taking steps to "fix" the problem.

Disable some action notifications

But what if you want your users to be notified of certain issues? Say, for example,
you want to make sure you user gets warnings related to Virus protection (such as
out of date signatures). In order to do this you need to follow these steps:

1. Click on the Flag icon from your notification area.

2. Click the Open Action Center.

3. From within the Action Center click Change Action Center settings.

4. Leave checked only the options you want your users to be informed of (Figure B).

5. Click OK.

That's it. Now your users will only be made aware of those issues you want them to
know about. This can come in very handy when you don't want to have to baby sit
an end-user PC for EVERY issue. Good candidates are virus protection (as
mentioned) and the User Account Control.

Figure B
Use caution when disabling the User Account Control. Although an annoying
feature, it does do a good job of warning new users when they might be doing
something they shouldn't.

Disable the feature all together

The final choice is the most difficult as it involves editing the registry. This option
will completely disable the feature all together. I will warn you, as any other time
you are dealing with the registry, make sure you back up your registry (in case
something goes very wrong). Here are the steps to disable this feature in the
registry:

1. Click the start button.

2. In the run dialog enter regedit.

3. If the UAC window opens (warning you that the program is going to start), allow
the application to run.

4. Navigate to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error


Reporting entry.

5. Double-click on the disable parameter.

6. Change the disable parameter from 0 to 1.

7. If the disable key is not present right-click in the window and select New Dword.

8. Name the new Dword disable and set it to 1.

9. Close the Registry Editor.

That's it.
