Question Your computer may be at risk!

On windows xp is there anyway to prevent the warning bubble from popping up in the lower right hand corner of the screen that tells you "your computer may be at risk"? Turning on the virus protection, firewall, etc is not an option in this situation.

Sorry... that's what I get for reading too fast and not paying attention.

I thought it was one of those pop-up scams that tell you that you are infected with 13 bajillion viruses etc....
