  • Hi Avi Habaza,

    What is the exact notification you have got(A screenshot will be useful to understand the exact symptom)? Is this a domain environment? Have you deployed any Windows Update gpo if this is a domain environment?

    "i dont mind to disable the action center feature for that but nothing  helps so far. "
    Do you mean you have unticked the option here(Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Security and Maintenance\Change Security and Maintenance settings\Windows Update)?

    As far as I know, we won`t be notified if we haven`t configured any Windows Update gpo.

    Best regards

  • Hi  Avi Habza,

    What is the exact gpo you have configured?
    Usually we shouldn`t get notifications. If it is possible, please remove the Windows Update gpo then check the symptom again.

    According to my research, that notification should be related to the files "musnotification.exe " and "musnotificationux.exe".
    As a workaround, we could try to change the permissions to those files or rename them to block the notification.
    Here is the case for reference:
