Printer notification popup removal

When I print to a networked printer a notification popup on the bottom right hand side (next to clock) appears.  It looks like the same popup that informs you of windows updated available.  It states "This document has been sent to the printer" and then it quickly dissappears.  How do I get rid of it?  

Thank You.

WIndows XP service Pack 2.  
go to  the Printer control applet [Start >Settings > Printers]
now from the File menu select Server Properties
Select the Advanced tab
Uncheck the 'Notify when remote documents are printer'
Click OK
Reboot the computer
Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

Wylie is correct. On XP OS's the area to uncheck is;
Show informational notifications for network printers

The check box to remove it was "show informational for netoworked printers"

Thank you
I'm confused. Glad it's resolved. :-)

I would have liked to give David-howard a split in the points.  I forgot to do so.  Moderator if you could give hime points also, because they both gave me info that was needed.  

Thank You both
