Dial-Up Connection



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!

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


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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
