    Just wondering how I can stop the little "speech bubbly" box thing coming up next to the 2 little computer icons in the system tray, everytime I connect to the Internet. It says something like 'Connected to (ISP) at (Speed)'. Its starting to get on my nerves. :mad:
    Thanks for any help you can offer!

    XP PowerToys... use TweakUI to disable balloon tips.

    This does work but what if you only want to get rid of this one balloon? :)

    These steps disable all Notification Area balloon tips for this user. There is no way to disable balloon tips for specific programs only.

    Guess this anwsers my question. Thanks! :)

    Thanks for the replies! I actually figured it out for myself in the end ;) I went to the registry and added EnableBalloonTips and put the value at zero....it worked :) I still have the little balloon things, eg. hovering over the Start menu and it says 'Click here to begin' and where I want them. But no more balloon tips on my dial-up connect and when I go to shut down.
    Thanks again for replying
