Is there any way to remove Notification Center from OS X Mountain Lion?

Launch the Terminal app on your Mac (it's located inside Utilities in the Applications folder) and paste in the following command:

launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchAgents/

Hit enter and Notification Center should be disabled. You might need it kill the process for it to go away immediately. Do that with this command:

killall NotificationCenter

If you ever want to get Notification Center back, just enter this command into the Terminal:

launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchAgents/
