RE: Help baloons

Ted,

In Windows XP Pro SR2, this balloon can be turned off from the Control
Panel. Find Security Center in the list, and press Enter. On my system,
when the Security Center opens, focus is on a Resources button. I Tab
once to a link labelled "get the latest security and virus information
from Microsoft" and can then DownArrow to a link labelled "change the
way Security Center alerts me". Press that link to open a dialogue with
some checkboxes that can be used to specify which alerts you want to
hear, or not.

Turning off all help balloons would probably be overkill, but I can tell
you one I'd love to address.  Are there any other XP users bothered by
constant reminders that your firewall is turned off?  I can verify that
my firewall is on.  I'm told to click the balloon to fix this
problem--lotsa luck.  By the time JFW reads it, the balloon has
disappeared, or is about to.  You'd have to have the fastest mouse in
the west to click this thing,while the clicking's good--and that
presumes you know where to find it.  How can I convince this fool system
that its firewall is indeed on?
 
If you wish, you can reply off list to tlisle@xxxxxxxx, as I realize
this one is marginal, at best.

        If they still pop up, contact me off list and I will send you a
file that will turn off help balloons in the registry.

         

        Regards,

        Dave

                        Hi Stacey,

                        If I have my facts in order here is the
solution.

                         

                        1. Go into control panel.

                         

                        2. Hit F to find folder options and hit enter.

                         

                        3. Go to the view tab.

                         

                        4. Tab down until you are in a tree view. On my
system it is 2 times.

                         

                        5. Go to the last item which should be "show pop
up description for folder and desktop items" and make sure it is set to
off.

                         

                        6. Hit enter on apply and then on ok.

                         

                        HTH
