    Default Removing the help/information pop up 'bubble'

    Can anyone tell me how to remove that annoying information bubble that pops up when your mouse hovers over things?

    Gemini,
    What does the information bubble say and what type of things are you hovering over when it indicates it.

    The link Partie provided will work & below I will give you Microsoft's instructions for disabling the balloon tips.

    Here is another set of instructions from a very trusted source.

    But IMHO, the easiest way by far is to use this little VBS script from Microsoft MVP Doug Knox. This script makes the needed registry changes without any manual registry edits.

    For people that have no knowledge of backing up and restoring the Windows registry this is a lot safer and better alternative.
