Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

For example it says the space on my D drive is running out. Its annoying since I knew about it even before the system did and I'm ok with it. Other hint is saying that it can't show all recently used shortcuts in start menu - I really don't care.

How to turn it all off?

@Moab The question is different, but the answer applies, since it didn't actually answer the question. Not a duplicate though. –  Daniel Beck Feb 26 '11 at 15:51
    
That is why it says "possible duplicate" –  Moab Feb 26 '11 at 16:04

@Moab It says "possible duplicate" because you didn't edit the comment after it was automatically created when you clicked next to "This question covers exactly the same ground as earlier questions on this topic". Mine was both fyi and for others who might do the same after only skimming over the other question, which is a lot less useful without the accompanying screenshots. –  Daniel Beck Feb 26 '11 at 20:27
    
I know how it works, thanks. –  Moab Feb 27 '11 at 1:01

According to Microsoft's Description of the Low Disk Space Notification in Windows XP you can turn it off by manually editing the registry.

Alternatively you can put the following 4 lines of text in a .reg file, right-click on it, and select "Merge".

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoLowDiskSpaceChecks"=dword:00000001

It looks to me like @TheNewbie has one value too many...which probably doesn't hurt anything.

Just like the "duplicate" answer said

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"ShowInfoTip"=dword:00000000

Just save this to a .REG file, and import it.

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoLowDiskSpaceChecks"=dword:00000001
