Is it possible to disable this feature using GPO's. I don't want to go to each pc and untick the setting if possible.

Registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Settings\EnableBalloonNotificationsRemote : value: dword=0 to disable
Go in printers / File / Server properties / Advanced / untick the setting
