Every time I tab out an application or just when I'm watching something. The software and driver update checker keeps popping up. It gets annoying sometimes and I can't seem to find a solution. It started happening after a windows update.

Click More settings

Switch notifications to OFF

Personally, I leave notifications OFF - If I want to know something, I check it.
