Is there a way to stop Windows 7 complaining about the fact that ive turned the default firewall off. Whilst i am on my home network i dont want to run the windows firewall as im behind a router, but windows periodically complains that i have it switched off even though it isnt necessary?

is there anyway to prevent this?

If you actually launch Action Center (the tray application that fusses at you), you can disable the alerts from inside the main interface.
