I wish to disable action center notifications (turning its messages off).
I need to do this via a batch script that runs on all our test platforms.
I have not been able to find a way to do this.

Appreciate the help.

You can hide the Action Center icon with the following command:

reg add HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer /v HideSCAHealth /t REG_DWORD /d 0x1

It won't disable messages (to do that you'd have to edit a binary registry value), but they won't be displayed anymore.

Just as a note, it looks like the user must logoff/login before the notifications go away. – Kyle Oct 17 '12 at 18:41
