To disable Balloon Tips,

Method 1. Download and install XP Power Toys. Once you have it installed, go to Taskbar and uncheck "Enable Balloon Tips."

Method 2. You can perform a registry tweak.

The Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

Create a new DWORD value, name it EnableBalloonTips, and set it equal to 0. If EnableBalloonTips is already there and equal to 1, set it equal to 0. Quit the registry editor, log off, and log back on. Voila! Your computer will stop talking down to you.

Bonus:

You want to know the coolest new thing about the Windows XP registry? It's the ultimate convenience for power users. Windows XP registry comes with a favorites menu. Now you can tweak and nudge and bump without having to keep a list of keys stashed around.

That's the one! Thanks for the help!
