    Pop up baloons! (XP SP2)

    Does anyone know how to stop the ANNOYING pop up balloons for things like available wireless connections? I have disabled the pop-up balloons using another tip from this forum but that failed to stop them. I am getting sick of seeing a pop up every few minutes about some connection available nearby me.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    I don't have SP2 yet, so I'm fairly certain I don't know what configuration options have been added, changed, moved, or deleted. That said, do you see any options for telling windows that you want to manage wireless networking manually (i.e., by you starting up something from the Network Connections folder)?

    Have you looked at Start | Help and Support? There is an extensive section on wireless networking.

    There has been NO display changes on our two lap tops. I you were to check the Properties of the connection, you should have 2 check boxes for the display of the icon in the systray and pop up as far as if there is a change in the connection, i.e. limited or no connectivity.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    I can't tell from your post what the other tip you found here was, but have you disabled pop-up descriptions in your Windows Explorer folder options?
