Hi Lee,

These are provided by notify-osd, which you can uninstall. You might also
want to check the autostarted applications for e.g. the update notifier
which you can then disable to speed up Xubuntu.

Note that if you uninstall notify-osd, you will get no notifications at all,
from any application that uses libnotify.
