    i just installed SP2 and now i have a small red "shield" icon in my task bar that monitors my security alerts. Is there any way to hide this or get rid of it?

    Configure the firewall, virus protection, and automatic updates. To make it go away, select any of those mentioned, click recommendations, and check off "I already have a/v, firewall and will monitor it myself.

    you're better off letting windows monitor it. Windows updates are free. The windows firewall is free. If you need a free antivirus package, check out AVG Free (www.grisoft.com).
