1. Start Regedit
2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\
3. Change the value of EnableBalloonTips from 1 to 0

I haven't tried this personally, so I don't know if it will disable all bubble messages or not. Try it and let us know how it works.

There's another way to enable/disable the bubble messages.
Is has to do with personalized preferences, for each user account on the system. I don;t have the instructions in fron of me, I need to look it up in PCmagazine.
(Non-registry edit I think)

I have an H-P with Windows XP home addition.
To change those settings I just go to Start--Connect To--Right Click on your provider click properties click options. You can make the changes there.
My provider is nraonline so that might make a difference I don't know I don't have anything else to compare it to.
