Line 7 has a REG file which increases the Balloontip timeout. You need to modify that script in order to reduce the timeout.

For some reason it doesn't work. I tried decreasing the time of the balloons as you suggested...

I also even tried disabling them and they still show up. I used a program called "X-Setup Pro" to completely disable them.

What is the problem here...very odd. I'm using Windows XP SP2. When I was using SP1 it left the balloons open until I closed them manually. I thought they were supposed to time out by default....can someone verify that?

Any input or ideas is/are appreciated.
