Disable balloon tips in Windows XP

One thing that really bothers me is a balloon tip that appears every time I reconnect to my home WiFi. Simplest solution is to disable balloon tips by using RegEdit. Open up this branch:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

Add this DWORD value: “EnableBalloonTips” and set it’s value to “0” (zero).

Balloon tips will be disabled after your next logon.
