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

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

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
