    Annoying yellow balloon (xp)

    How can I disable the little yellow prompts that pop-up on the task bar, saying 'You should update..', 'Do you want to contact us..', 'Unused icons..', etc., etc.?
    Can this be done without going into the Registry? Thanks, Andy.

    You can use Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP, which essentially does the registry tweak for you.
