IE9 nagging system pop-up

I have just got IE9 and it has an annoying feature I would like to disable if possible.

At regular (and frequent) intervals I get a yellow-ish pop-up box at the bottom of the screen asking if I want to disable add-ons to make my browser faster.

I don't have any add-ons installed because I'm carefull what I install simply because I don't want a screen full of search toolbars and 2 inches of internet content.

(A similar box now pops-up when I download a file - I'm OK with this as it's just an alternative to the standard grey Open Save Cancel box in previous versions.)

Back to the annoying pop-up; does anybody know how to disable this please? It's starting to become annoying.

Many thanks

The more I hear about IE9 the less I like the sound of it. I shall continue to resist MS's efforts to install it !
