I recently upgraded my laptop from 2000ME to XP. Having an irritating problem. About every 10 min I get a little balloon pop-up that tells me my wireless connection is connected. How can I stop this. I know its something simple...but cant find the answer. Thx in advance!

Here’s a tip from Microsoft. It will disable balloon tips.

1.Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then press ENTER.
2.Navigate to the following subkey:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
3.Right-click the right pane, create a new DWORD value, and then name it EnableBalloonTips.
4.Double-click this new entry, and then give it a hexadecimal value of 0.
5.Quit Registry Editor. Log off Windows, and then log back on.
