    XP pop-ups (XP-professional)

    Is there a way to shut down those irritating pop-ups in XP?
    they manage to pop-up right in front of what I'm trying to read! These are from XP, not outsiders. Another of those brilliant ideas of Microsoft. And, the help files aren't much help.......gee, what a surprise, eh?
    Thanks for past help.

    If you are talking about the balloons that pop up in the taskbar, use Microsoft's Tweak UI and in the Taskbar and Start Menu section, uncheck Enable Balloon Tips. You can also disable them with this registry edit .
