Windows question

I got a Compaq notebook about 3 months ago. I have recently started using it regularly and something is annoying me. Little bubbles keep popping up for the icons in the bottom toolbar to tell me about wireless connection status, etc. Does anyone know how to disable these? They stay up forever and I'm tired of closing them. I like when you put the cursor over the icon and it shows info but this is horrible. Any help would be great.

I hate those things. I have one for MSN messenger that I can't get rid of, and I've never used it once.

Be careful in that registry, or you'll really start hating Windows, because it won't work anymore if you screw something up in there.

Of course, if you go down this road, and you use the windows auto update feature, you will lose the baloon to tell you that you have new updates ready to install.

ok so if I might say so casually and carefully, DONT FRACK WITH THE REGISTRY UNLESS YOU REALLY KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING !!!
Now, if you absolutely must, in Regedit, make sure you go to File and then Export and make a copy of your registry before they do anything. Almost all instructions that mess with the registry will tell you to do that.
