Are you trying to display a tooltip ??

if you are trying to do something other than this, just set a flag within the code indicating that the mouse has already 'moved' within the area, then when it happens again, just ignore it.

If it's just a tool-tip you're trying to display, set the .Text property to a string no more than 63 chars long.
 
For example: this.notifyIcon1.Text = "This will show when this icon is hovered over";
