I know I've read somewhere in a recent PCad about how to get rid of these horrible, repeating messages at bottom right of screen in XP! Can't find the article now......anyone help?

right click the desktop and choose properties/desktop/customize desktop remove the check next to Run Desktop Cleanup Wizard every 60 days to stop the balloon poping up.

to disable all the balloon tips click here

or do it manually,click start/run and type regedit and click ok.back up your registry by clicking mycomputer/file/export and saving the reg to the desktop the file to restore if you need to.

navigate to:H_KeyCurrentUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

once here right click in the right pane and click new/Dword,Create a new Dword value called EnableBalloonTips.Give it a decimal value of 0 and click ok.restart the computer.
