Just from ActivePerl docs:

    use Win32::Registry;
    my $tips;
    $::HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->Open("SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows"
                               ."\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\Tips", $tips)
        or die "Can't open tips: $^E";
    my ($type, $value);
    $tips->QueryValueEx("18", $type, $value) or die "No tip #18: $^E";
    print "Here's a tip: $value\n";
