If you've installed certain programs on your PC or left specific settings enabled, you might find yourself getting unwanted notifications. Fortunately, it doesn't take much time to block an application from cluttering your display with annoying alerts.
It's not only notification-happy apps like Facebook or Twitter that fill your screen with alerts, as pre-loaded bloatware programs also spam displays with pleas for attention and offers for anti-virus subscriptions. Here's how to stop any app from posting notifications. And, if you're wondering how to stop a Windows update from automatically restarting your PC, we've got you covered.
