    Hi;

    This is my first time posting here but I have read posts on this forum extensively and they have helped me so much. I want to get rid of what I think are called "shadows." Let me try and explain. When you put your mouse pointer over let's say the Favorites, it drops a little box that shows everything it says. Or here, if I move my mouse over one of the icons up above it drops down a little box telling me what it is. I hate those things - they get in my way and I just want to make ALL of them go away. Can anyone help...???

    Well I kinda figured I'd have to hack the registry. If I knew how I would have done it already... Can you be more specific?
