I got my Daughter a new computer running XP. How do you turn off those annoying pop up balloons? Ex. "your network is connected" " you have unused desktop icons" etc...

Thanks

type gpedit.msc and find it in there and disable it or, download tweakui for winxp and use it.

I don't show my desktop icons, therefore they are all unused. Thanks, Mark. that did the trick.
