    If you dont like them you can disable them using

    Using Local Group Policy Editor, or gpedit for short.

    To invoke this editor, select Start and then Run, then type the following: gpedit.msc After you hit ENTER, you'll be greeted by gpedit, which lets you modify virtually every feature in Windows XP.

    Go to "User Configuration" >> Administrative Templates >>> Start Menu and Taskbar... Scroll Down in the right Pane ..... and you will see "Remove Ballon Tips on Start Menu" Just doubleclick on that. Choose Enable or Disable


    or just download this regfile , right click on it and choose merge = goodbye To0l tips :)

    Alans post is the best way to do it, but if you don't have the utility, and this link has it, download it
