Hi, I'm not sure if this is a help balloon or not, but each time I boot up my laptop (I haven't done so today) the net waiting dialogue comes up. Howdo I disable net waiting. I'm using wireless so I don't think I need it.

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.

   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.
