That should bring up a dialog box (that I can't figure out how to get to otherwise).

On the left, there are some options; one of them has something to do with controlling how Windows nag... er ... notifies you. Click that and there's an option there to zip its lip.
I rebooted to get the nag message, clicked on it, and it gave me a screen to choose what to do about Microsoft antivirus, firewall, and automatic updates. I clicked on the automatic updates choice, and guess what, the same window that I posted before was right there for me to make the same choices as before.

Now I must admit that I have changed the power administration settings, and consequently it seems that my WinXP Pro computer never really does a cold boot, it "resumes" with a progress bar across the bottom of the black screen instead. It may be that process doesn't allow some of the choices possible with a cold boot.

Perhaps I could get a cold boot by turning off the power strip, but I haven't tried that yet. Also, I could revert to the never turn anything off power administration settings. Maybe the spirit of adventure will allow me to try those options, but not right away.
