Disable Print Balloons

Hi,

I have an employee who wants the printer notification ballon removed.  The user has XP with SP 2.  However,

They don't seem to have the registry entry EnableBalloonNotificationsRemote in

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Settings

Has anybody got any idea how I can remove these notifications without this entry??

Thanks a mil,

Jane

Hello janereid21 =)

Two ways to disable this, from Start>Printers and Faxes>File Menu>Server Properties>Advanced section> and untick "Show informational notifications for network printers"
Second is, to Create a new DWORD value in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Settings called EnableBalloonNotificationsRemote and set its value to 0(means Disabled)

Create the entry and enter a value of zero.
