    On xp and vista you have the icons in the tray that pop up little messages telling you that you are wirelessly connected, have a new update, battery is low .. ad infinitum. I was wondering if there was a way to turn these things off. Completely. ALL of them.

    1.Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then press ENTER.

    2.Navigate to the following subkey: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

    3.Right-click the right pane, create a new DWORD value, and then name it EnableBalloonTips.

    4.Double-click this new entry, and then give it a hexadecimal value of 0.

    5.Quit Registry Editor. Log off Windows, and then log back on.
