To Disable The Notification Area Balloon Tips

1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then press ENTER.

2. Navigate to the following subkey:

3. Right-click the right pane, create a new DWORD value, and then name it EnableBalloonTips.

4. Double-click this new entry, and then give it a hexadecimal value of 0.

5. Quit Registry Editor. Log off Windows, and then log back on.
