Is there a way to remove the bubble that pops up each time Windows XP connects to a network? I often use my laptop in a cafe where the network seems to come and go, and each time Windows (re)connects, it notifies me with a dialog box / bubble. It's distracting and largely useless. Is there a way to remove it?
If you want to keep the tray icon, you can follow these instructions to knock off balloon tips in the notification area:
Tweak UI (MS Powertoys) can do that as well.
Or use the VBS script provided at Kelly's Korner to disable/enable balloon tips (11/L).
