  • <p>I have tried to disable microsoft narrator. Please send information on how to keep it from popping up everytime I start my computer.</p> <p> &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; jerrshaffer@comcast.net</p>

  • <p>Excellent. Worked exactly as explained and prevented any further of those balloon messages from appearing. I can understand how they may be useful to some but the constant barrage about Wireless, VPN, etc was getting too much ;-)</p> <p>Thank you.</p>

  • <p>is there a way to do this process in reverse so that i can have the tips i need for my calculator renabled? I am using windows vista in case that matters.</p>

  • <p>Is there a way to turn off the annoying info tip that appears when I place the cursor in the search bar or any field on a web form? The toop tip flashes while the cursor is there and interferes with typing in the data. Win XP Pro and IE8</p>

  • <p>Hi Scott,</p> <p>Thanks for posting the positive feedback and I'm glad to hear that the Fix it helped you.</p> <p>Thanks,</p> <p>-Mark</p>

  • <p>This was awesome! The &quot;Fix it for me&quot; downloaded quickly and fixed it for me without much intervention, thus avoiding any anxiety of editing the registry. </p> <p>The entire concept of 'Fix It' is cool and I am very glad to see that Microsoft is acknowledging that not all of it's &quot;cool&quot; features are needed by everybody, thus allowing users to choose for themselves. This is a welcome change and I thank the Microsoft team who are trying to make things easier for their consumers.</p>

  • <p>&quot;Fix it live&quot; an excellent rapid solution, well done.</p> <p>Alain</p>

  • <p>Hopefully this works, if so it is much better than messing with regedit, so thanks!</p>

  • <p>After a few weeks the balloon tips returned. Reinstalled this fix and after a few days the balloon tips were back once again. Using Vista</p>
