How do I stop those irritating popups from Windows XP telling me I have got unused icons on my desktop, or that I need to upgrade, etc, when I just want to do some work.

Right-click on the desktop, choose Properties > Desktop tab > Customise Desktop button > untick "Run desktop cleanup wizard every 60 days" box, click OK, Apply and OK to exit.
