Now open regedit:
naviagate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify
and delete the entire folder called WgaLogon
and restart your computer.

You will be prompted to re-install these services which have been deleted, simply write down the services it says are missing, and de-select them from msconfig -> services tab, and they will be gone forever.
If you get the odd pop-up or returning screen you may also disable the System Event Notification under this same menu.
