    :rolleyes: I can't believe that I can't remember how to get rid of these things... must be old age creeping in.

    The pop up balloons that tell me when my dial up connection
    has connected, and say "Click here to begin" when you move
    the mouse over the start button.

    I got rid of them instantly when I first installed XP, but
    damned if I can remember how to do it now.

    Again... :rolleyes:

    Thanks

    Tweak UI has the option to disable them

    Tried TweakUI, but it didn't work... glitch probably.

    That reg setting was what I used initially.

    TweakXP really did a number on my when I installed it.
    Instead of leaving my settings alone, it changed everything
    to what I assume were the default TweakXP settings.
    I was not amused, and immediately uninstalled it.
