I found this:

With this setting, some of this pop-up text is not displayed. The pop-up text affected by this setting includes "Click here to begin" on the Start button, "Where have all my programs gone" on the Start menu, and "Where have my icons gone" in the notification area.

START > RUN > GPEDIT.MSC > USER CONFIGURATION > ADMINISTRATIVE TEMPLATES > START MENU AND TASKBAR > FIND REMOVE BALLOON TIPS ON START MENU ITEMS > CHECK ENABLED > OK



Ok now that works for PRO edition. I HAVE HOME edition. Is there a reg tweak or what?

Open Help and Support and search for "Balloon Tips." If you have zonealarm, let help access the internet. Click the "Microsoft Knowledge Base" bar at the bottom of the left pane. I have XP Pro and the very first item on the list took me to the M'soft article on how to perform the registry edit. Good luck.
