How do make those shadows GO AWAY?

Hi;

This is my first time posting here but I have read posts on this forum extensively and they have helped me so much. I want to get rid of what I think are called "shadows." Let me try and explain. When you put your mouse pointer over let's say the Favorites, it drops a little box that shows everything it says. Or here, if I move my mouse over one of the icons up above it drops down a little box telling me what it is. I hate those things - they get in my way and I just want to make ALL of them go away. Can anyone help...???

Well I kinda figured I'd have to hack the registry. If I knew how I would have done it already... Can you be more specific?

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
