    To remove XP balloon tips, in the Registry editor (regedit) navigate to:

    \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr
    entVersion\Explorer\Advanced...set enablebaloontips to 0

    entVersion\Explorer\Advanced But i cannot find the listing for the balloon facility , I am running XP pro does this make any difference

    look on the right, it should be there, if it's not,


    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MicrosoftWindows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

    and create a new DWORD value named "EnableBalloonTips" and give a hex value of 0.
