Windows XP - unnecessary warning pop-ups

  Bubbi 11:36 29 Sep 2005

I have XP on a recently purchased Toshiba laptop. When I startup I get warning "speech balloons" appearing from the botttom taskbar saying "Automatic update is disabled" & then "No wireless network detected". These are both true & how I want them - is there any way to stop these messages coming up because I have to manually close them each time I use the computer before I can do anything else.
This is getting frustrating & I would be grateful for any help - Thanks

1. Goto Control Panel
2. Click Folder Options (in the classic view)
3. Click the View tab
4. Unselect the Show pop-up description for folder and desktop items option
5. Click OK
